Smith’s medium-spiced Durant report, and certainly the funniest of the three, came later in the episode, when he reported the breaking news that Kevin Durant says Stephen A. Smith’s reporting on Kevin Durant is bullshit.

Both of Smith’s non-Smith reports from Wednesday sound very much like they could be true. They are also generally unflattering to Durant, which would give Durant another possible incentive for shooting them down, beyond that they might be false. Triangulating the truth here will mean comparing the credibility of a self-aggrandizing rumormonger to that of an online-brained cheesebutt superstar who defends himself via phony social media profiles. Good luck with that.
