Skip Bayless makes yet another absurd take about Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks, and Scott Foster
This series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns couldn’t have been a more fun one to watch. So far, in 4 games, the two teams are tied at 2-2. Prior to all this though, the Suns had total control at one point, a 2-0 lead in the series in fact. But, as we all know game 3 was a slightly special one. And it was for one man, and one man only. His name? Scott Foster.
Foster has a reputation for being one of the more biased and crocked referees in the NBA right now, but his relationship with Chris Paul is arguably worse. The Point God has lost his last 12 games with the controversial referee officiating, and to a large extent, these losses came due to horrible calls against Paul. And well, game 3 served as another example for that kind of game.
Despite the bad calls though, Milwaukee deserves a lot of credit for how well they defended that game, something they’ve not been getting whatsoever. And joining in on this trend of the NBA community, Skip Bayless has yet another absurd take to make about the Finals.
Skip Bayless credits Scott Foster as the sole reason for the Bucks’ victory in game 3
And, as any of Skip’s takes do, this one turned out to be a total dud.
For those that may not be aware, Scott Foster wasn’t part of the officiating crew in game 4. And not only did they get no advantage, but there is also an argument to be made, that Devin Booker shouldn’t have been in this game for the last 4 minutes of the fourth quarter.
Still, Milwaukee came away with an impressive 109-103 victory. But, before he was proven brutally wrong, Skip Bayless had this to say.
By not having Scott Foster referee tonight, I’d say the advantage goes to the Suns. You cannot underestimate the impact that Scott Foster had in Game 3, both psychologically and in actuality! He’s the Sixth Man for the Bucks. More @Undisputed, now on FS1. https://t.co/tDEG70Kpa3

We’d like to say that the 69-year-old is totally cuckoo on this one, but the fact of the matter is, many in the NBA community felt the same way.
This Bucks team is more than just a minor threat to win. And it’s time they got their respect.
