Excuse me for not being up on the Maria Taylor vs. Rachel Nichols drama like OutKick’s Bobby Burack who can’t be getting much sleep with drama spilling out all over on the mean streets of Bristol, Connecticut as these two engage in a catfight. Here’s Burack’s full coverage, in case you actually want to get caught up on the drama.
I’m just here for the comedy that’s coming from these two ESPNers fighting it out in public. Do I care if Maria gets a big fat raise? Absolutely not. Did I lose sleep over Nichols losing her hosting job to Taylor during the NBA bubble? LOLOLOLOL. That brings me to something I do care about: Which was longer — Giannis shooting free throws or Rachel’s apology for her role in this drama?
Let’s go to the tape!

Giannis took 3:30 minutes total in the first quarter to shoot his free throws.

And there it is…Giannis wins in a landslide.
Now I’m going to get back into my lane that includes mowing grass, drinking patio beers by the pool, tinkering in the garage and watching sports. 25-year-old Joe Kinsey might’ve been interested in ESPN employee drama, but these days I’m worried about two kids destroying the house and whether I’m going to have enough room in the trash can for the brush I’m going to shove in there illegally.
