NBA Analyst Shannon Sharpe issues an absolutely brilliant reply to a heckling NBA fan on Twitter
Man, we do love us some Shannon Sharpe.
If you don’t know who he is, allow us to introduce you to the man that makes Skip Bayless bearable to the NBA community.
A former NFL star and a hall of famer, the 53-year-old now hosts ‘Undisputed’ alongside Bayless himself.
Sharpe usually plays the straight man between the two of them (to be fair though who wouldn’t in front of Skip). But, at the same time, he is absolutely capable of making bold takes of his own.
Speaking of takes though, the pair recently had a few about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in a recent episode of their show. One specific fan though did not like their departure from the NBA, and NFL, and let Shannon know on Twitter.
And to that, the analyst had an absolutely brilliant response.
Shannon Sharpe knew exactly how to big boy this NBA fan on Twitter
Now, we know that this is stating the obvious, but whatever happens online or on TV, it happens for the ratings and views.
Unless a journalist or analyst is a special kind of outlier, chances are the only news covered, is the one that’s about a trending topic among the community.
You got that? Good. Remember that, you’re going to need it later.
Well, that aside though, this is what the fan had to say about the Ronaldo and Messi-related episode.

Ho hoooo, that’s some malicious compliance right there.
Reminding them of the difference in your tax bracket AND what you do for a living.
Talk about LeBron James as much as you want Sharpe! We’ll always be here to hear it.
