Abbreviation brooklyn network defeat Toronto Raptors at Barclays Center on Tuesday night, 131-129. With several players injured or in league health and safety protocols, the Nets relied heavily on Kevin Durant, who played the full 48 minutes and had a hell of a night: 34 points from 12 shots 29, 13 rebounds, 11 assists and one tackle.
It’s the latest in an MVP-caliber campaign for Durant, and it’s subsequently caught the attention of one of the sport’s highest-paid, Skip Bayless. When he didn’t want to, Bayless tweeted after the game, praising the man he believes to be “the best player on the planet” while simultaneously doing it as he called out LeBron James’s name.
The planet’s best player is again tonight in Brooklyn, becoming a killer in extra time for the Nets due to the COVID-19 shake-up. Nothing like Kevin Durant. Have you seen it, Bron?

Now, Bayless has made a career out of (among other things) trolling James despite the fact that James is basically considered by everyone to be one of the five or so greatest basketball players that ever lived, so this is not unusual. But it caught Durant’s attention, so he decided to quote it tweeting with a very simple message.
Durant continues to be the best poster in the NBA. Anyway, congrats to the good people at Undisputed on the segment they would absolutely have about this tweet.
