Analyst Skip Bayless is considered to be one of the most hated figures in the sporting industry because of his mean and abysmal takes.
Die-hard sports fans love to watch the game itself and also keenly watch the pregame, postgame interviews. Along with the interviews, also the takes several analysts and fellow legends have to give. Several analysts like – Stephen A Smith, Max Kellerman and more, have earned quite a good amount of money and respect with their takes. Whereas there are a few ones that are absolutely hated by the sports community. And no one tops that group above Skip Bayless.
Ever since Skip Bayless started this career as a sports talk radio host, in the early 1990s, he received backlash for calling a Dallas Cowboys Troy Aikman gay, which Aikman said wasn’t true.
Even in the NBA, Bayless has openly been a LeBron James hater, criticising the Lakers superstar whenever possible. He even gave a few nasty names to the king, calling James “LeFlop” and “LeChoke” over the years.
Sporting fans hate Skip Bayless for his mean-spirited takes
Recently, amidst the NBA finals, Skip just admitted to missing LeBron James, someone he loves criticising with a passion. In a tweet, Bayless simply mentioned “I miss LeBron.”
I miss LeBron.

Several people believed Bayless’ account was hacked while others thought the analyst put on an act just to bring up the ratings of his show “UNDISPUTED”.
Nevertheless, in quite a several instances, Bayless has crossed the line with pretty disrespectful comments on players. This is why a huge majority of fans hate him.
I hated Skip Bayless before but now I despise him — I thought he was a rude obnoxious old fart. Turns out he’s racist af and also mentally incompetent.
What a bigoted asshole

Every time Troy Aikman is trending, I click on it just because I hope he’s finally beaten Skip Bayless unconscious.
