There are many NBA analysts out there, but not many hold the stature of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless. Although the two now have their own separate shows, they did reach the heights of their popularity together on ESPN's First Take show.
The two would engage in some crazy debates and give fans plenty of entertainment. But all good things eventually come to an end, and so did Stephen A. and Skip Bayless' run as co-hosts for the First Take.
Smith is still the primary reason for fans to watch First Take, but Skip left the show back in 2016 and joined Fox Sports. Anyway, over the years, fans have wondered what went wrong between the two to call quits on their partnership.
Stephen A. explained it in a recent interview. He tried to clear the air about the misunderstandings that the two analysts had with each other. While Skip wasn't convinced initially, he eventually gave in and rekindled his relationship with Stephen A.
Then entered Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant. Since being eliminated early from the playoffs this season, KD has a lot of time on his hands. He has used this time to engage with fans and sometimes analysts as well. The Slim Reaper has responded to almost every negative comment made by the said analysts in this time span.
It is safe to say that his relationship with SAS and Skip isn't the best. So when it was revealed that the two analysts had made things up between themselves, Durant mocked it with a sarcastic comment.
Upon seeing the comments from Durant, both SAS and Bayless decided to tweet about the same with their own sarcastic comments to thank Kevin Durant for his gesture.
Given the fact that KD has feuded with both of them publicly on various occasions, he will certainly make a comeback pretty soon.
But can the Brooklyn Nets superstar handle the two of them at once? Most likely, at least on Twitter. This leads to fans wondering if KD should sit for an interview with both Skip and Stephen A. to conclude his feud with them once and for all.
