Skip Bayless Rumors
It was the end part of a conversation Barkley had on The Dan Patrick Show this week, with Barkley quickly cramming it into the final minute of the show. “You know what we should do for ratings?” said Barkley, “If I get a disease and I’m gonna die, how about you get Skip Bayless in here and I kill him live on national television.”
It took all of five days and one Western Conference finals game to prove that hot take incorrect, as Russell Westbrook and the Thunder stormed into Oracle Arena and stole Game 1 in a come-from-behind victory. Now, OKC owns homecourt advantage and sits uncomfortably in the driver’s seat of this series. That tweet must’ve been stored in the back of Thunder sixth man Enes Kanter’s mind, since it took the Swiss-born and Turkish-raised backup center less than an hour to burn Bayless for his now cold take.
Skip Bayless: Hey @Dame_Lillard: All I said was you’re capable of going Steph on Steph’s team. Yet up 11 after 3 qs in G2 – no Steph – you scored 0 in 4th Damian Lillard: That’s not all you said. But You’re entitled to an opinion, that holds no value to me. So No hard feelings.
Skip Bayless: Am I right @Dame_Lillard? You scored 25 in 1st 3 qs of G2. Then, up 11, you were 0-3 in 4th. If you had come up big, you’d be up 2-1 now! Damian Lillard: You are right. 0 in the fourth… But findout how many times I passed to the open guy with two ppl guarding me.
