DeMar DeRozan blasts ‘clown’ Skip Bayless for insensitive Hayward tweet
Just as he has done the past several years, Skip Bayless used any excuse possible to slight LeBron James. Only this time he picked an awful time to do so.
Shortly after the Boston Celtics announced that newest member Gordon Hayward had suffered a fractured ankle in his season debut, Bayless used the injury as a way to troll LeBron.
If Gordon Hayward is gone, maybe for the season, LeBron's path to losing a sixth finals gets even easier.

The FS1 personality using any and every opportunity — including a horrific injury — to slight James did not sit well with many.
One who stood up the loudest to it was Toronto Raptors star DeMar DeRozan, who blasted the “clown.”
“You’re a clown for that tweet after a man gets hurt with a potential career ending injury! S— bigger then basketball!” DeRozan tweeted in response to Bayless (profanity edited).
Bayless is probably pleased that his tweet went viral. Now we just need another response from Scott Van Pelt.
