The same is true for some of the best sports commentators ever. While the NBA world continues fawning over the legendary TNT duo, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal, the same cannot be said for the Undisputed Crew.

Friends turned enemies?

Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe’s relationship has turned bitter. And even though many would speculate that Bayless and his insults might have eventually been the tipping of the scales, there is one moment that can be pinpointed for the disagreements. Just last season, Damar Hamlin underwent a heartbreaking injury during a Week 17 game against the Bengals. The incident shook the entire NFL community as many took to prayers for Hamlin and his family. However, Skip Bayless had some rather harsh comments.

No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game — but how? This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome … which suddenly seems so irrelevant.” expressed Bayless on Twitter.

The Tweet didn’t sit right with Shannon Sharpe, who refused to show up to work the next day, and eventually asked Bayless to take down the post. However, Skip Bayless isn’t one to fold and stood by his opinion. The two then got into a heated discussion on whether the FS1 bosses wanted Bayless to offer an explanation for the tweet, even exchanging words along the way. Since this incident, the air around Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe has taken a rather ugly turn and is going to end with Sharpe departing for greener pastures.
