Skip Bayless made damn sure everybody knew that he was still the biggest LeBron James hater in all of sports media Monday night by targeting the NBA superstar’s son, Bronny James.
Bronny went viral on Monday, as the 17-year-old threw down a thunderous dunk over his opponent during a high school basketball game.
Everybody went nuts, but Skip found another angle.
“Hey Bronny … impressive,” Bayless tweeted. “But your dad would’ve dunked it left-handed. You sure got away with it, though.”
Bayless was blasted for the hot take, but he seemed shocked why he received so much backlash for the take.
“It shocked me last night when my tweet exploded,” Bayless said. “Because I wasn’t criticizing Bronny, I was merely commenting on a young man who is going to be a focal point for this show and everybody else from this point forward.”
Bayless didn’t pay attention to the comments, but his wife surely called him out when he got home.
“I don’t read my comments on Twitter,” Bayless claimed before noting his wife Ernestine monitored the reaction. “She says, ‘Well you did it again.’ I don’t look at my mentions and she said ‘I’m getting a bunch of Google alerts, you’re getting ripped for ripping this poor kid. You gotta lay off the kid.’”
