Skip Bayless: The NBA needs LeBron like Golf needs Tiger, nobody cares about Durant
quote:

The Warriors forward has been irritated with the media at various points this season, and he told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock that reporters' constant attention on his upcoming free agency has irked him because, at the end of the day, it's his life and his story to tell.

“That’s a hot topic,” Durant said of his free agency. “But you don’t have to talk about it. And then you don't have to get mad when I don’t want to talk about it. And then you don’t have to get mad when your little brain is roaming around, but you can’t find the correct answers. That’s bad journalism. That's not doing your job well.”

Durant's comments were a hot topic across the sports world Tuesday, and they didn't sit particularly well with FOX Sports 1's Skip Bayless or Shannon Sharpe, who went at Durant on "Undisputed," calling the Warriors star "uninteresting" and claiming no one would notice if he were out for the playoffs.

"So, Kevin says, 'They need me,' " Bayless said. "No. Seriously, we don't. Do we need LeBron [James]? Yeah, I'm going to give you LeBron because trust me on this, Kevin Durant: LeBron James is 100 times more interesting than you are.

"I don't know what it is about LeBron James, born on Dec. 30, 1984, he and Tiger Woods have this in common. There's a force field that revolves around both of them, and I can't explain it because it's inexplicable. But stuff just keeps happening to both of them that is highly interesting. On a nightly basis, there's a subplot of every LeBron James game, and I miss him greatly. If Kevin Durant were out for the playoffs, nobody would really care -- I know he's been out for the playoffs, and nobody cared. Life goes on.

There is no Tiger Woods in any other sport except swimming with Michael Phelps.

Difference between Tiger and Lebron is that Tiger is a lot more likeable and humble.

Tiger being likeable and humble are very recent occurrences. The one thing a lot of folks didn’t like about him in his hay day is that he was a recluse, robotic, and short with the media

That’s 1000x better than a “HEY EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME” moron that can’t stop telling everyone how great he is.

Anyone ever heard Tiger talk about him being the greatest ever?

Lulz, Lebron wishes he was as interesting as Tiger.

You can tell because he tries incredibly hard to be that interesting.

Tiger is more in the Babe Ruth/Michael Jordan stratum. LeBron is much closer to Durant

Summing up this thread:

1) Tiger is waaay more popular than LeBron.
2) The NBA does indeed need LeBron like Golf needs Tiger.
3) No one gives a sh*t about Kevin Durant.
4) Where is LeBron? Not currently in the playoffs.
