Skip Bayless has become the king of saying the wildest things to get reactions from everyone and everyone falls for it every time.
It took off with his takes on LeBron James and he’s expanded now. One of the latest takes he had that’s gotten people riled up was his take on the Warriors championship parade.
He says the title deserves an asterisk because the Celtics were frauds and also said the parade made him sick. To make things worse, he then goes into a rant about Steph Curry who he says got more showboating as the season went on.
It should be pointed out all cultures have their own inside jokes, so it gets tricky when someone outside of that culture decides to start speaking about it.
This brings us back to Skip Bayless talking about Curry acting “light-skinned.”
On Undisputed, Bayless and Shannon Sharpe debate on if Curry is a Top 10 NBA player of all-time, which led to this mini rant from Bayless.
“I don’t care what Twitter says, I don’t care what anyone says, I just know what I did and did not see from little light-skinned Steph. There have been too many times when he got so light-skinned in the Finals I couldn’t see him any more, because he turned into a ghost. He just went ‘Poof!’ right before your very eyes.”
In this context, Skip is using Steph’s skin color to say he disappears isn’t really how it is used in the culture. That said, white people shouldn’t use any color to describe a black person.
Skip, or anyone for that matter, says something wild and gets a lot of reactions. This seems like an endless cycle. The sad thing about it though is there are lots of people who side with him on these things.
