NBA News: Mark Cuban Takes on Skip Bayless, Leaves With His Dignity
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has never been one to bite his tongue. He is consistently one of the highest-fined owners in professional sports, and never has a problem telling people what he thinks.
Enter Skip Bayless. The brash, equally obnoxious talking head from ESPN’s First Take that enjoys taking the unpopular side of an argument and pounding it into the ground until he’s red in the face. It’s certainly a good strategy for ESPN, as he is one of the most talked about on-air personas the network has.
But this morning, Cuban and Bayless squared off in a debate for the ages. Skip, who is notoriously anti-LeBron James, found himself in the middle of an argument with an equally hard-headed individual. And we’re all better because of it. (Okay, not really, it’s just completely enjoyable to watch.)
