Yep, Skip Bayless was a high school basketball star. Therefore, he’s much more qualified to provide insightful commentary on the Thunder or give LeBron James funny nicknames than you are.
Or is he?
Over the weekend, we acquired through the Ogle Mole network some scans from the 1969 and 1970 Northwest Classen High School Yearbooks. Not coincidentally, that was Skip’s junior and senior year at the once suburban high school. The yearbooks contain team photos, season recaps and even individual player stats for the basketball team. Basically, they let you know if Skip’s claims of high school basketball glory were true and accurate, or if they were just wild lies pulled from the *** of the elder douche bag of annoying sports commentators.
We’ll begin with the 1969 yearbook. That was Skip’s junior year of high school, and the proud moment in his life when he became leader of…the JV team. Here’s a team photo of that JV squad. Skip is highlighted on the top row.

personally, i think its time for this troll to be fired, he has been the biggest knick hater outside of charles barkely that is allowed to analyze basketball for a profit

this man is a joke, he lost ALL his credibility with me today, and i find it laughable that this guy thinks he knows anything about the NBA or carmelo anthony

skip predicted the knicks to win the east and has tweeted constantly about our improved play over the weeks. I don't know how you say he's a hater when it seems he's the opposite.

The Knicks are Back BABY!!! we're gonna take home the champions chip, hopefully, as long as harrelson keeps playing good, and we find some minutes for jerome jordan, i think we will be fine in the playoffs

hahahaha this is funny no lie but regardless skip will never be fired because he probably boosts ratings more than anyone on ESPN because he is a controversial douche bag

Stuff like this only helps cement his job as an ESPN analyst. He causes drama and controversy, and therefore boosts rating. Get used to him, because he's going to be around a while.

Would you rather have a dry dull guy on the television all day just agreeing with everyone, or would you prefer someone like Skip who makes outlandish comments but still isn't afraid to say what's on his mind. He's doing something right, otherwise you wouldn't have made this thread. If you only take one thing away from this particular post, DON'T HATE THE PLAYER, HATE THE GAME!

I love the comment of Skip being a Heel character,but he isn't a ENTERTAINER his job is a ANALYST & there's plenty of people who provide ACCURATE facts while being entertaining. ESPN is a joke! While Magic Johnson is the opposite he agrees with everything that is said,without PROVING his points.

The thing is though he isn't on ESPN to provide facts. He is their to debate what his opinion is on what ever topic they discuss.

IMO what he does on that show is mostly scripted to keep people talking.

But you clearly don't watch the show, Skip constantly talks about how the Knicks will make the ECF, probably the only analyst that actually thinks that.

this is your wonderful source? thelostogle.com did you bother to press the about us section?

TheLostOgle.com is an “obscure” social blog based out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

I did listen to Jalen Rose and Skip go at it on First Take. I thought that was funny as hell.

John Walls Era
04-10-2012, 06:15 PM

skip isn't going to get fired over this. He brings in ratings cause everyone wants to say what the dumb douche is going to say next. plus he has great fights with steven a. smith.

04-10-2012, 06:37 PM
Im not gonna defend Skip but why does this matter as far as his expertise is concerned? If you based on how much of an expert someone is based on how good they were at sports MJ would be the greatesr GM of all time, instead he is possibly the worst talent evaluator of all time. All I know is that he's more right often then his wrong... he was right about Lebron wayyyyy before anyone else was and I actually agree with him on the Russel Westbrook point- it will hurt them come playoff time.

Anytime a guy hates on LEBRON/VICK/AI and any athlete that has that 'freakish' athletic ability/talent is nothing but a non player, all players present and past would luv to have they gifted ability with the skillset they have to match,well im speakin more for AI/VICK

Skip is a tool and he lost all and i mean all cred when he said NASH was the best athlete, not which athlete best suits his style, but he said NASH was best athlete cuz of soccer, What a tool..as where AI/LEBRON type could have played professional MLB/NFL/NBA and of course soccer at 5star level

I heard ROSE put him in his place earlier on show about not playing or being JV

Skip is the ****. People are just jealous that he has the job they would love to have so they spew complaints in order to justify their existence. The best part about Skip is how he hooks morons into getting all angry about an opinion that he has the onions to put on national TV.

The amazing part to me, is that there are still people that felt skip was credible?! He's been ESPN's "Disney version" of a shock jock since he's been there. He owes whatever fortune and fame he's gained to Lebron. He tried desperately to be the modern day cossell and used Lebron as his Ali and ESPN ate it up SMH. He's the reason I stopped watching that morning show..Shout out to The Dan Patrick Show. The only time I can stomach watching that morning show skip is on, is when Stephen A. Smith gives him the business.

When I turn it to his segment, it makes me proud that there is somewhere out there that is more homer than some posters in forums all over the net.

Lebron would get his *** whooped in soccer just sayin haha I agree on Football though

Did anyone ever think Skip was actually an analyst though? All you have to do is watch his show once and its apparent that this guy is just an entertainer that makes outrageous statements and vehemently defends them regardless of validity (see: Tim Tebow). He is great at what he does and this thread is proof that he is doing his job successfully.

I watch the show everyday and it's fun to hear his rants that often are baseless but who cares its fun. Why does talking opinion about sports have to be something that is polite. This is sports it's a game. Btw OP skip loves melo and always speaks highly of the Knicks often too highly - part of the reason I like him. Hates the yanks but it's fun to yell at the tv and laugh at the dumb stuff he says. He does his job well which is to stir things up I'm shocked that so many athletes pay attention to him. It's wild he really gets under people's skin. It's like they don't get he does all of this on purpose to get a rise and stir controversy. It's sports talk its fun.

But to answer the question...no, he definitely won't get fired. Until people stop getting mad at Skip Bayless, he will be on the show.

first of all anybody that gets riled up by skip bayless is a moron...thats his job, thats what he gets payed for, to amp you up and make you want to argue with him...second of all skip bayless is notorious for hating new york in general but this year hes been going out of his way to suck the knicks off and hes always sucked melo off, you're way off base here...im actually a fan of skip bayless because i understand his buisness, i go to broadcasting school so i kind of see where hes coming from when he makes all his outlandish statements, hes entertaining as far as im concerned...but if you dont understand the sports broadcasting industry, i can see how you can get so riled up...either way if you are getting riled up thats exactly what hes trying to do and what he gets paid to do

04-10-2012, 08:38 PM
I actually love Skip. I think hes very entertaining. Him and Steven A. do great television. Do i put much stock in what hes saying? Not really but I watch for the entertainment value.

Obviously some of you look to him for the information value which has left you sadly disappointed and angry. Skip is entertaining and funny, if you look at him from that perspective and not as some angry jealous lover who feels betrayed you might enjoy him too.

Skip and Steven A. make for great TV so get used to him being around.

I've say it a million times and i'll say it again; he's just like Mike Francessa, he purposely stirs the pot and plays devil's advocate so people like yourselves get your panties in a twist and get all emotional and heated. And the height of irony, the one's who hate him/them the most, are the ones who watch him religiously. He's absolutely amazing at what he does.

If you want to see the real Skip, you need to catch him when he's a guest on someone else's radio show; he's much more subdued and rational, which clearly goes to show it's 95% an act on first take. There's a reason they renamed and remodeled Cold Pizza just for him; he's an absolute ratings king.
