ESPN’s Skip Bayless Exposed As A High School Fraud
Everybody’s favorite sports talking head and LeBron James hater Skip Bayless took to Twitter recently to prove that he was a high school basketball stud in order to add credibility to his basketball opinions. Amongst his tweets, Bayless mentioned that his days as a player at Northwest Classen High School were Al Bundy-esque. Not only was he the “MVP of a state-wide basketball camp over future D1 players,” but Bayless also claimed he started for his team as they lost in the state finals. He was criticized by his coach for not being a traditional point guard and thought of himself as a “Pistol” Pete Maravich-type. His high school history pretty much solidified that he could speak on players like Russell Westbrook and LeBron.
Then he got exposed.
TheLostOgle.com did a little digging and found the 1969 and 1970 yearbooks of Northwest Classen High School; which were the junior and senior years for the stud player Bayless. The yearbook also featured statistics for the basketball team and they found Bayless. Bayless did play basketball, but it wasn’t for varsity. You see, Skip Bayless was a junior playing for the junior varsity team. He was the leader though. As for his senior year, Bayless did play for the varsity team that went 20-2 and lost in the state championship. However, that whole MVP thing was pretty off base. Bayless scored 21 points in 15 games. No, not 21 points per game. 21 points total. That averages to about 1.4 points a game.
Now watch as Jalen Rose ethers him on ESPN First Take.
Damn Skippy. That was really a douchebag move buddy.
