A Look At The Never-Ending Hotness Of Skip Bayless And His Most Sizzling Sports Takes
Skip Bayless is easily one of the most rage-inducing personalities on Twitter, at least when it comes to sports. This isn’t exactly news. The guy could say something and simple and harmless as “good morning” and it would probably garner over 200 replies, most of which would say something inspiring, like “please ram your head directly into a brick wall, ya dick.”
But it’s not like Twitter is known for highbrow conversation or any kind of decorum. It can get ugly pretty fast. But Skip does has a knack for being wildly inconsistent, changing his allegiances on the fly, and — most significantly — for being flat-out wrong. That last one is what gets people digging deep into the Twitter archives whenever something goes completely against his prediction or “take.” And some of them are so ridiculously off, you can’t help but be amused.
So here’s a look at some of those moments. We can thank yesterday’s firing of Derek Fisher for this little treat down memory lane.
While it’s completely understood that Skip’s job is to rile the masses, something he happens to exceptionally good at, that does not include making comments that have a ZERO PERCENT chance of happening and ultimately end up making you look like an ass. Kerr took over Steph Curry’s Warriors and won a title. Fisher took over a mess of a Knicks team and got fired less than two years into the job.
The difference between these two coaching opportunities, at the time and at the present moment, is akin to comparing Adrianna Lima to Rosie O’Donnell.
Well first off, they “avoided” the Clips because L.A. put on a colossal choke job against the Rockets. Secondly, let’s not act like the Warriors beat the Nets. They took out LeBron for christ’s sake. When the Warriors repeat this year, blame Skip Bayless.
This was said in December of Von Miller’s ROOKIE year, one that saw him record 11.5 sacks. That’s a stellar rookie season by any measure. And perhaps, I don’t know, maybe do something else at 5:14 pm on Christmas Eve other than blast an NFL rookie? This is so depressing it hurts. Now, of course, Von Miller is a Super Bowl MVP. Vintage Skip Bayless.
