Skip is such a chump. It is great to see him squirm.
Skip Bayless Caught in lie
http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba...D_fvamiaS8vLYFBayless' ESPN co-host Jalen Rose, after a bit of research of his own, took on Skip after Bayless claimed that he started as a shot-happy point guard for a high school team that made the state finals in Oklahoma. Bayless didn't start for his high school squad, it turns out, and didn't even play for the varsity until his senior season, when he averaged 1.4 points per game.

ESPN should fire him, but they won't. Truly sad how clowns like this can maintain a job while many hardworking Americans get laid off everyday.
They had a 20 minute pow-wow about this.
I don't mind Skip. He's entertaining, regardless of how wrong or right his opinion is.
Although he gets paid to stir things up as the despised villian, nevertheless, Brainless does talk out of his azz. It's funny how he can call LeBron "LeBrick" or Kevin Garnett "Garnot" ad nauseum and get away with defaming players usually who have no podium to strike back, but when someone comes on the show, either using derisive variations of his name, suggesting he knows **** because he didn't play the game, or just plain calling him out for his BS, he gets his bowels in an uproar and sometimes that guest debater is not seen again. Personally, I think Skippy is to sports analysis what Saban is to height. **** him and his wrestling act.
I've often wondered why ESPN puts up with Bayless. He is effacating and demonstrative in his opinions of athletes in general and while he may be an award-winning journalist/columnist his comments only bring frustration and irritation to those who listen. That little troll Steven A Smith is another who needs to reign in his derisive opinions. Rarely does he have anything positive to say and I would just as soon not have to listen to him when following the NBA. Both of those analysts could use a time-out for an extended period.
Nice to see Baylips getting what was coming to him!
Just win Phin baby!
I can not fault Bayless in this situation, I have lived a similar situation with Baseball in high school. I was one of the best players on my JV team, batted off the charts (.440 I think), and I was a catcher and started every game, batted clean up.
Went to varsity where the coach was a long time adversary of my father (my father at one point played semi-pro baseball until injury derailed him), the coach hated my father, come cut day I was cut. The explanation behind the cut was, I was an arm swinger and wouldn't be able to hit a baseball at the varsity level even though I lead the JV team in batting average in terms of number of at bats (there were two higher averages with far fewer at bats). Also the coach brought in a kid who was a hockey player and personal friend to catch that season, kid hadn't played baseball since he was in little league and said his catching form was much better, it wasn't.
Years later I ran into the JV coach who was now the varsity coach and he apologized to me. Apologized because he said he would have walked off if that would have happened later in his career at the time he was 2 year into his first teaching position. Said I had as much talent as anyone he had ever seen from our area and should have played college ball somewhere. The greatest what if I have over my head to this day is giving up baseball, I am no fool, I don't think I would have made a career out of it but I wonder what would have happened in college had I played or walked on.
I got the high hard one in high school and I gave up on something I love to do, it taught me a lesson, I will never give up on anything now in my life because of it.
