Nowadays, most sports shows say things for shock value to get the most reactions.
One of the people that has mastered that is Skip Bayless. He knows exactly what to say to get a reaction out of lots of people. Even at his co-host’s expense.
On a recent episode of Undisputed with Skip and Shannon Sharpe, Skip takes a shot at Shannon by saying he was jealous of Tom Brady and that he was a better player than Shannon.
Shannon didn’t take too kindly to that and looked very upset by the comments and let Skip know how he felt.
The video got many reactions, but one of the more noteworthy ones came from Jalen Rose.
Jalen and Skip have their history going back years when Skip took a shot at Jalen, then Jalen did research to find out how ineffective Skip was on his high school basketball team.
“KRS-One, one of my favorite rappers, he always said that he kept a diss record for everybody in the top ten in case somebody wanted to come at him,” he said. “In the debate world, what you’re trying to come up with is facts, stats, and figures that may be body blows, may be head shots, if you need them. Yes, that debate did become personal, and I regret that it became personal. In our banter, I did bring up some intel that I had done. I got some of it off Black Sports Online. I vetted it, and so when I was on the show and the debate became personal, I exposed the information that I had about his high school career. As I look back at it, I should have handled it different.”
So it’s no surprise that Jalen came out and called Skip a culture vulture.
It was a low blow by Skip, but he knew exactly what he was doing.
Flip the page for more, and Jalen says you should be ashamed to call him Drip Bayless.
