I actually don't know this guy. I have seen him multiple times, but who is he?

Also i just saw a video on espn about what MJ commented on Lebron&Miami, in this video you can see this, called Skip Bayless, expressing his opinion.

What do you think about this guy?

Is he one of those Lebron haters or he talks real?

Skip is my least favorite person ever he is always bashing everyone no matter what. He has made a career saying people suck and arguing with people about anything in sports.

You know its funny... I think people are in denial about this guy. I for one am a skip lover because he tells the truth and calls it like he sees it and never backs down. The one thingn and the only thing I always disagreed with him about is Lebron James because I for one used to be a Lebron lover and believed he was hands down the best player in the NBA.... but after this past year of playoffs and the way he handled his free agency I think Skip was always right about him. He doesn't think he can be the guy... he can't make the big shots... like Skip always used to say.

he just took his own opinion and somehow found it in what MJ has said, somehow i don't think MJ meant all that, do you?

I've enjoyed some of his comments in the past, but I mostly can't stand him. He always treats his own knowledge as Dogma and I've never seen him say he was wrong. I also can't stand his voice or maybe it's the way he speaks, slowly enunciating. Yea, he pisses me off for sure.

this sometimes he can go wayyy out there but for the most part he is right even if we dont want 2 believe him

Love this guy.

He tells the truth. Which is harsh for most people to swallow. In '07 he was predicting the first of the Mets collapses (against Rob Parker, those are the best debates) I thought he was crazy at the time but it came to fruition eventually. that was really painful.

ShockerArt
07-19-2010, 02:35 PM
He's just a talking head. He doesn't really have anything interesting or insightful to say. His shtick is being argumentative or provoking in order to get attention. It's worked out quite well for him considering how little he seems to know.

The fact that this thread is 2 pages long already and has 42 people viewing it tells me all I need to know about Skip Bayless.

His views are at times absurd, childish, mediocre, and plain stupid. However, he is right plenty more times than he is wrong.

Mudvayne91
07-19-2010, 02:40 PM
I'm kinda in between with him. Think he's full of it on some things and spot on on others. I totally agree with what he's been saying about "Prince James" in years past, but I haven't watched 1st and 10 for awhile, so I'm not sure what his take is on him recently. Probably not good.

SeoulBeatz
07-19-2010, 02:40 PM
He annoys the **** out of me sometimes, but he's also pretty funny for that reason.

I don't think he's hating on lebron, i think he has valid points about him and i agree with him to an extent.

If he agreed and loved everyone would you even know who he is? His job is to argue and play devil's advocate

Burkey3472
07-19-2010, 02:42 PM
Don't really like him or agree with him all the time but I respect him. He goes out and tells the truth (or what he believes is this truth) and you can't say that about many other analysts out there.

Skip makes first and ten, first take whatever. If he wasn't on it, it would not be worth watching PERIOD. He speaks da truth.

DamnGoat
07-19-2010, 02:44 PM
I kinda like him.

Yeah, he's out there sometimes but he will admit when he's wrong. He doesn't buy into the same hype that ESPN feeds to most people. For the longest time I couldn't stand the guy, but if you really listen to some of his points they make some sense.

Skip Bayless, this guy has probably never played a sport in his life yet he talks so much **** about pro athelets as if he could ball. My feeling is that he was probably beat up a lot in high school, stuffed into lockers by the Football team which would help explian his persona. Having said that, he cracks me up.

I really like Skip Bayless.

With that said, I think he is a wannabe know-it-all who constantly speaks out of his bounds about things and makes himself look stupid, but he is always entertaining and there is a lot of value to that considering sports shows are otherwise quite mundane.

Although he might be stupid sometimes, people always want to know what he's going to say because whether you agree or disagree, his opinion and how he preaches it can be really funny.

Also, that Jalen/Skip video is HILARIOUS.

My favorite comment about it: @ 2:28 skip looks like he got his feelings hurt & wants to cry.

I am very offended by Skip Bayless's existence. He is all over Bron's kawk. Skip Bayless is a kawk monster. He's a professional **** talker. When his face is on ESPN I change the channel. I figure this is only way to tell ESPN that I hate this guy without giving ESPN and Skip Bayless more attention.

It's embarrassing that so many Chicago posters are OK with this guy. Must be the Jay Marriotti effect...

Skip Bayless is one of those guys who is either ridiculously obvious or someone whom you simply can not believe he believes what he is saying. I feel bad for people who think Skip Bayless "tells the truth" or simply "calls it like he sees it".

He's horrible. The good news is I don't have to pay him any attention.

Da Knicks
07-19-2010, 03:28 PM
I think he is a good reporter in that he keeps the people watching the sport and watching the person that espn wants to promote. The hate for Lebron is so that all the Lebron lovers can listen to b.s. and for all the lebron haters to laugh. I think he gets paid to just case on all the stars to get ratings for espn. He is funny and annoying id like to pop him in the mouth just for laughs.

I love the guy. He makes me laugh all of the time. Whenever someone asks him a question, you can count on him taking the opposite point of view as everyone else no matter how rediculous it sounds. He then proceeds to yell. I laugh every time. He is a nice change of pace from all of the other company men and ex atheletes who are afraid to hurt someones feelings.

Skip is a tool... everyone in this thread has either said they hate him or they used to hate him, but not anymore. All of you who say you used to hate him but "not anymore" it's because you are hating on Lebron and eating those sour grapes that Skip Bayless makes meals out of. At least Skip has always hated Lebron all you guys are jumping on his bandwagon because of the "Decision".

But to get to the point Skip Bayless is probably the most annoying, idiotic analyst there is on ESPN.:bla:

Michael Jordan is flawless according to Skip Bayless. I use to enjoy watching him but now I realize that the reason he was hating on Lebron because I personally think he thought he was a threat to Michael Jordan!

He even say Kobe first championship without Shaq was a asterisk according to him because Stan Van Gundy starting Nelson over Alston in the NBA Finals!

People hate him because he doesn't deliver the truth in a nice way. Hes almost never wrong... Remember when he said Lebron isn't a class act and how he shouldn't be compared to MJ or even Kobe? Well everyone is agreeing now.

Hit or miss. He can be very entertaining or very annoying.

Akagaminosteven
07-19-2010, 04:26 PM
I agree with the hit or miss response. He sometimes contradicts himself and there are times where I don't even think he believes what he's saying. He has a habit, when cornered or proven wrong on air, to just shout "YEAH, BUT-" and jump to a hopefully correct point to get away. I think it's very cheap. However, I do find his take on certain things to be insightful. Unfortunately he's a huge Twilight fan, so I can't take him 100% seriously.

Hate it when Rob Parker is on the show, though.

This guy is a joke and makes ESPN look like a joke. I lost some respect for ESPN, when they made this clown a regular. He's ESPN Disney Land "Shock Jock". He makes his money by spewing his obsurd thoughts as facts and just saying obsurd things about the biggest sports figures in the game. The guy is so bias towards certain players and so unbias towards others, that it's a joke. P.S. He needs to come out of the closet. I love it when the 2live stews rip into him and when Smith use to smash him.

Skip is like any other TV personality, they say things just to get fame.

But as far as Bron goes, Skip has pretty much called him out for years now for being over-rated and not being anywhere near the level of a Jordan or Kobe or even Wade.

So I give skip props because the truth is he has been right this whole time. Bron is not a real leader or a true #1 option, and going to the heat was an easiest route possible to a ring.

And West banged his mom, so props to West!:)
