Mark Cuban Demonstrates the Idiocy of Skip Bayless
Furthermore, shows like ESPN First Take are like reality TV in that they have no real substance and there is no point to watching them. All the commentators try to do is stir up controversy because they think that will get you to watch. But, you won’t be any smarter after seeing an episode and you certainly won’t have realized any universal truths about sports.
Next time you find yourself watching Skip Bayless screaming about “pressure” and “playing hard,” do yourself a favor and change the channel. If you want to hear real analysis of the NBA, then watch Inside the NBA. Shaq is an idiot, but Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley actually make insightful and legitimate points.
Otherwise, there’s a better chance that you’ll be able to evaluate a certain game or player on your own or with your friends rather than by watching a show like ESPN First Take.
