It was inevitable than these two men would clash. Kendrick Perkins and Skip Bayless use the same methods to defend and attack LeBron James and it was a matter of time before we see them going at it to defend their takes on the GOAT debate and more NBA-related topics.
After Perkins tweeted that LeBron James was the most athletic player in NBA history, Bayless went after him, talking about all the times that Perks has defended James and has made the case for him as the GOAT.
The 2008 NBA champion didn't hesitate to call out Bayless, even accusing him of being a stalker.
After that, Bayless mentioned the incident between Kevin Durant and Perkins, implying that KP changed his loyalty to KD to defend LeBron.
This only stirred the pot, with Perks revealing it was nothing like that since, in fact, he knew Bron since 8th grade.
Well, Bayless didn't stop there and on Friday's edition of FS1's Undisputed, he sent a message to Perk, calling him old among other things.
“I realized last night, he's only a month and a half older than LeBron James. He's only 35 years old He has to be the oldest looking 35 years old on the planet. It feels like Kendrick Perkins played with Bob Cousy in Boston."
He took things personal there, but it looks like Bayless had the last laugh in this whole matter. Perk demonstrated that KD's words actually hurt him, as he was caught crying during an appearance in ESPN's First Take.
This week started with huge controversy and it's finishing the same way.
