We all know Skip Bayless should be ignored. He’s a troll that feeds on attention.
But that’s easier said than done. He’s like an annoying mosquito biting your arm. It’s human nature to want to slap him.
The ESPN performer has said many a ridiculous thing on the intentionally incendiary First Take over the years. Nearly all of them pale in comparison to the opinion he trotted out this morning.
Asked to grade LeBron James’ performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Bayless thoughtfully gave him a C+.
That performance, I’ll remind you, included 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists. And, oh yeah, a win.
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
The tragedy here, of course, is that he’ll go home and count his money and I’ll eat a microwaved burrito.
The world ain’t fair.
