On Tuesday, the Oklahoma City Thunder re-signed forward Nick Collison to a two-year, $7.5 million deal. It’s really a minor move that in the grand scheme of things, isn’t much of a big deal.
Former ESPN NBA writer chimed in on the signing.
Dude who averages 3 pts & 3 rebs gets 2-year/$8M extension. No wonder they won't make the playoffs.

Palmer has feuded in the past with Thunder star Kevin Durant, so naturally, Durant got his licks in on Palmer.
@ChrisPalmerNBA means a lot coming from a dude who got fired for being a dumbass

The response from Palmer was…well, it wasn’t really great.
@KDTrey5 Love that you got your teammates back. But you should get your facts straight.

But really, what *can* you say in response to that? Sometimes, you don’t even need to be creative to shut someone down, and that’s what exactly happened here with Durant.
