Article I found blasting Jalen Rose and his debating skills on ESPN compared to Skip Bayless. It also looks at Hanley Ramirez and his recent troubles. What do you guys think?

I don't know. Skip is pretty subjective at times, but he's usually right. I like Jalen overall, more.

Rose isn't the most eloquent of analysts, but I'd take his word over Skip's anyday. Skip talks all sports and basketball is probably his weakest of every sport he covers.

But he's the one guy on FirstTake/Sportscenter/BSPN that says it like it is about LeBron James. He's aint scared of what the big network guys might think.

Jalen Rose. At least you can take what he says seriously. The majority of the things Skip says on First Take, are just to bring in ratings.

The high ups at the 'big network' absolutely love Skip. Besides Simmons, he's probably the most recognizable person at ESPN. Like I said below, he just says what he says about LeBron, to drive ratings. It amazes me that there are people out there, that actually take his opinion seriously.

Jalen Rose AKA Team Cancer said that the Cavs with Lebron are a better team than the Bulls with Lebron. Enuff said. Skip is da truth

Jalen Rose is better without a doubt.. btw most anylists are saying the same thing about Lebron not fiting in well with the Bulls, except the albino crackhead Chris Brousard. :rolleyes:

no, he is a moron. what he says about lebron just appeals to delusional kobe fans like you that dont want to fathom the fact that lebron is creeping up on and just might have overtaken kobe as the best player in the league.

I seem to be in the minority on this issue, but I really don't care for most of the player-turned-broadcasters.
I respect their opinions, and they're often right. But I find that just because they laugh and smile doesn't mean that they have any charisma or talent. I watch tv to be entertained, and I don't think Rose, C-Webb, Payton, Reggie (ESPECIALLY REGGIE), and guys along those lines provide any entertainment value. Chuck does.
But that's just me....and I think Bill Walton is hilarious, albeit unintentionally. So what do I know?

ditto. baseball especially. my favorite analysts/broadcasters are the ones like buster olney, tim kurkjian, peter gammons. most of the players turned analysts on baseball tonight are horrible. dont get me started on joe morgan.

Everything Jalen Rose says sound extremely over-rehearsed and fake. Skip Bayless actually sounds like he means what he says, and doesn't have some ESPN Intern writing his opinions for him like Rose.

I agree 100%. Although I think Shaq would be pretty good.

Lol.

"Say's it like it is with LeBron James"

If anyone was to take what Skip Bayless says about LeBron seriously then you'd have people thinking LeBron shouldn't even be a starter in the league.

The guy straight up hates him, and to be honest it's got him recognized so he's gonna keep it up. If he was gonna be realistic about LeBron and praise him like all the other analysts do, he'd just become that... Another analyst.

His hate for LeBron is his gimmick and he's gonna run with it.

No self-respecting journalist would spout stuff like that just for the sake of higher ratings.

I want to know exactly how Lebron would not fit in with the bulls? Even though Kobe is my favorite Lebron is the best basketball player in the world he would fit in with ANY team.

I totally agree with you about Reggie. I dont mind the TNT crew when it is Charles Kenny and Cwebb. I cant miller he needs a front office job somewhere so I dont have to hear him.

x2. I didn't like Skip at first, but once you watch his and realize he is usually right, you start to like it.

he picked celtics over orlando...which to me was pretty obvious with the way celtics disassembled Cleveland.

he picks suns over lakers...which was pretty ********.

He also picked Celtics over Cleveland before the series started, which is more than I can say for most.

Regardless of the topic, they always find away to make it about them. They try to be the sports shows version of Seinfield; especially in the beginning. Jalen Rose has improved dramatically. Can't stand bayless he is ESPN's pg-13 version of a shock-jock.

alot of the time i think bayless puts out opinions to drive the ratings up. some of the time he is right, but i think rose knows more about the nba than bayless. but, i enjoy listening to bayless in small doses because he does offer a different opinion from typical analysts, and i have grown to find his lebron rants to be amusing.

Rose is alright... but his predictions never come true (his Bosh and Lebron to Knicks prediction is currently still running). Bayless.. [look below]..enough said.

Skip is all an act. He pretends to get angry about everything because its way more entertaining to watch then a guy like Jalen Rose say the same things with the same cliche sayings as every other ex-athelete turned analyst. Lets just say if Jalen got fired, nobody would notice.

I strongly agree with this. I used to like them and over time I began to notice exactly what you are saying. I want to add to what you are saying but it's just one of those things you have to see to understand.

After watching 1st and 10 over the past couple of years, more and more people are agreeing with Skip on certain topics. I just watch him for sheer entertainment. He does have a couple of screws loose in his head.

Take a look : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYsRH6Jozi0

"WHHAAAT!??"

Jalen Rose is a dumb@ss as well. He is probally one of the worst, if not the worst NBA analysts out there.

flea
05-24-2010, 07:18 AM
Yeah, a troll. Even if you knew nothing about baseball you'd know what he said was ********, so he was just going for devil's advocate/troll position. Still though, he's a pretty poor baseball analyst. He talks about watching games all the time but it's like he doesn't learn anything. I'm not saying he needs to be sabre'd out, but some awareness of, you know, accurate statistics would be nice.

Skip Bayless. I'm watching ESPN First take and they were arguing about Mike Brown being fired. Skip Bayless was 100% right.

I watched him for entertainment purposes but he does knows his stuff even if he comes off kinda crazy.
