A lot of athletes and Aaron Rodgers lovers do not like Skip Bayless. I am not one of those people, I love Skip Bayless and his show First Take. I agree and disagree with a lot of what he has to say but I think he’s great for the sports world. He’s the king of drama on ESPN and he gets people to talk about him and watch him. Sounds like he knows how to do his job.
Former NBA star Charles Barkley does not like Skip Bayless, and he made it clear again a couple days ago.
Barkley, you may recall, has never been shy about his dislike for Bayless, who has been with ESPN full-time since 2004.
In 2009, he called Bayless an “idiot” on The Jay Leno Show, and he’s referred to Bayless as “one of the two people he’d like to kill.”
In 2011, Barkley referred to Bayless as “the biggest jackass in the history of journalism” and last year, he called him the “the biggest punk in the world.”
So, yeah, there’s no love lost there, and now we can add this one-liner to the list: “If I could get Skip Bayless in a room, you’d need DNA to find out who he was.” Check out the exchange starting at 1:35 in the video.
I love Bayless and I think he does the job right. He’s a perfect actor on camera and paper but the nicest guy you’ll ever meet off air.
