Skip Bayless has been a fixture on sports television for decades and is a harsh critic of LeBron James. At least, that is what he is known for today. He, along with Stephen A. Smith, has monetized the “Hot Take” like no other. Both were a part of ESPN’s sports coverage but have, now, gone separate ways.

Stephen continues to remain with ESPN, while Skip continues to be a “Hot Take” machine on Undisputed along with former NFL player Shannon Sharpe. He is the same on Twitter these days, as well. As always, he gave his predictions on the NBA Finals. According to him, Stephen Curry’s Warriors will beat the Boston Celtics in 7.

These are some of the reactions from “NBA” Twitter.

Recently, he told the Lakers star to “Lay off the chips, wine, tequila,” so that he can be ready for next season. Of course, he tweeted this out in response to a question James asked in an ad for a new Ruffles flavor three months back.

He also revealed that in 2008, there was supposed to be a face-to-face interview between them, but it got canceled. Some say he is to LeBron, what Howard Cosell was to Muhammad Ali. He, of course, has dismissed this comparison because he thinks LeBron is not equal to Ali as a sportsman.
