    That was sweet watching Bayless stammer around ...

    Bayless is a cocksucker who deserves any legit burn thrown at him. Until this short clip, I've never seen a second of that shitfest "First Take," but I've heard all about Bayless. I'd guess most of the jabs people get at him are in a sports-related argument. But something more personal like this hopefully takes this prick down a peg. It looked like there was some legit heat there between Rose and Bayless. Go Blue.

    Oh my. Bayless has been trading on this story for at least the last 10 years -- he used to do quite a bit of radio out here in the Bay Area and would tell it to give some context as to why he loved Rick Barry so much as a kid. (Barry was also hosting radio out here at the time.) For anyone with access to the complete Skip Bayless archive, and the inclination to subject yourself to that much listening, you'd probably find this story at least two dozen times.

    Jalen Rose is a dickbag of the first water too, always quick to play the "you never played the game" card.

    But it was fun to watch him score the rhetorical two-handed slam in Skippy's face. If you didn't play the game, don't pretend that you did.

    I saw Rose play in high school. He played the "Magic Johnson" position: the C/PF who brought the ball up on every play and did basically whatever he wanted.

    I agree with starman I don't care who called out Skipper so long as someone put him in his place. Couldn't have happened to a douchier guy.

    Well, Jalen is close.

    Jalen is a Douchebag All-American while Skippy Boy is a Douchebag Olympic Gold Medalist.
