Through the years I grown apart from watching ESPN, especially SportsCenter, but throughout that time I’ve never disrespected the commercial department because they’ve always remain on top of their game. That department hit another home run off a previous ad they did where a regular guy named Michael Jordan finds out how life can be sharing the same name.
Now they flip the script with one of their own and show how rough it can be if that regular guy shares the name of First Take host Skip Bayless.
ESPN loud-talker Skip Bayless may have reached a new low on Tuesday morning during an episode of “First Take.” During a debate about the NBA MVP race, Bayless got called out by Jalen Rose for lying about his high school basketball exploits. Not surprisingly, the events leading up to confrontation began with Bayless ranting about a professional athlete.
On March 31, Bayless tweeted that the Oklahoma City Thunder would be doomed if Russell Westbrook continues to play point guard instead of taking more of a scoring role. Seemingly to back up his assertions about the best use of Westbrook, Bayless added two more tweets citing his own high school basketball career at Northwest Classen High. Not only did Bayless claim that he started for the team that lost in the state finals in Oklahoma in 1970, he even compared himself to NBA legend “Pistol Pete” Maravich.
Bayless claims revealed that he played on the Junior Varsity team in his junior year and only averaged 1.4 points per game during his senior season and didn’t even register any statistics in his team’s state final loss.
Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh tired of the some the unwarrented critcism he has faced over the years from ESPN anyalast Skip Bayless, who has called him Bosh Spice, dedcided to go face to face with him.
