ESPN First Take analyst Skip Bayless spews hot takes like, well, it’s his job. Bayless gets paid to voice his opinion with co-analyst Stephen A. Smith, and he doesn’t stop when he’s on Twitter. In fact, that’s often when he offers his most controversial views.
Four days ago, Bayless tweeted he didn’t think the Oklahoma City Thunder could win a single game against the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors. The Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs in six games, and they are one of the hottest teams left in the playoffs.
That’s a typical controversial opinion from Bayless. But the Thunder proved the analyst wrong in the best way possible, stunning the Warriors on Monday night, 108-102.
After the Thunder took Game 1 over the Warriors, Thunder forward Enes Kanter had some fun with the analyst, tweeting “Sorry my man,” accompanied by two laughing emojis.
