Kevin Durant responds to more Skip Bayless’ Twitter commentary
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
For the second straight offseason, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are working out together, going through tough two-a-day workouts near James’ home in Akron, Ohio.
Last season, when Durant won his third scoring title and James won his third MVP (and they met in the Finals), the two credited their offseason training sessions together, dubbing ‘Hell Week’ as a beneficial tool.
So they’re back for round two, just four weeks after winning gold together in London.
“Just finished a great workout with @KDTrey5. On court work, ran the hill and finished running the football field. #StriveforGreatness,” James tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.
“I got better today! That’s all that matters!! Move em,” Durant tweeted soon after.
And, of course, in response to anything LeBron James does, ESPN’s Skip Bayless felt the need to weigh in.
But it wasn’t to commend the two friends for pairing their unmatched talents together to improve one another. Or to point out the fact that they went head-to-head in practice for a month leading up to the Olympics anyway. It was to expose LeBron James’ grand scheme to maintain NBA dominance by keeping KD as a friend.
Via Twitter, Durant didn’t seem too pleased with Bayless’ assertion. And he let him know about it, albeit briefly.
