Skip Bayless called out by Jalen Rose for being crappy high school basketball player
As I’ve stated before, I don’t ever watch Skip Bayless on TV or pay attention to anything he says, so I have no idea what he does or does not say on his show or Twitter feed. Apparently he was recently bragging about his high school basketball career and how his background as a starter on a team that lost in the state finals gives him credibility when discussing the Russell Westbrook dynamic on the Thunder. All that alleged credibility quickly went away when Jalen Rose pressed him with a few questions Tuesday morning.
During an argument about the Thunder and Russell Westbrook, Rose got Bayless to admit he averaged just 1.4 points per game as a senior in high school. He also got Bayless to admit he played on the JV team as a junior.
Bayless, clearly embarrassed and frustrated, said “We’ll address that later.” He apparently never did, but he found a way to immediately turn the tables back on Rose.
Normally I don’t encourage pointing the finger and laughing at someone but, in this case, I do.
