Charlotte Hornets center Frank Kaminsky took exception to an opinion Dan Dakich expressed on Monday about college athletes and the issue of whether or not they should be paid.
And thus, a Twitter war was born.
Dakich fired the opening shot with this tweet:
After Kaminsky replied by saying Dakich had no idea what he was talking about, the ESPN analyst pulled the "someday you'll understand" card:
Kaminsky hit back with the argument that the current system is exploitative of college athletes:
And Dakich responded by calling the Hornets center a clown:
So Kaminsky doubled down on the exploitative argument:
And Dakich doubled down on being older:
Kaminsky then served up a bit of, "Yeah bro, I totally got to the NBA by being a slacker" sarcasm:
But Dakich pulled out the classic "C'mon, you can do better than that" comeback:
And Kaminsky fired off the final salvo with a nod to President Donald Trump:
There have been a lot of reasonable, measured and thoughtful debates about whether college athletes deserve to be paid or not. This wasn't one of them.
