That’s what happens when the strategy for the move is “keep him away from the Lakers.”

Skip is annoying but no matter what happens this season, he isn't going away. The one guy I want to see eat crow is Max. How do you claim to be a Lakers fan but then root for the Clips?

I suppose to some.
It's difficult for me to find humor in the rantings of a buffoon. :/
Or at least one who may be pretending to be one to try to get ratings.

Skip confuses me.

He was one of the more vocal Kobe detractors for years.

Then LeBron comes here.

And he's suddenly Kobe's number one fan.

The Lakers win, it's no thanks to LeBron.

The Lakers lose, it's all LeBron's fault.

He pulled the same card with Bryant for years.

But since LBJ signed, he's now a Kobe stan. Right...

Nothing new to see here. Just a bigger platform with cancer, err, social media.

It says alot about how embarrassingly inane social media has made society. People eat up obviously insincere garbage online, when it comes to sports takes, culture, politics, etc. like a little kid eats up pro wrestling, thinking what they're seeing is actually real.

Skip is essentially a fan with a media job. Has over the top takes and has only extreme love (Kawhi/Zion/MJ) or extreme hate (Bron/Trae Young) for certain players

Nothing to really take notice of, shows like Undisputed are more entertainment than anything else, which is why I occasionally watch it (good for a laugh)

Part of that is because they talk about the Lakers every single day. Definitely after every game.

The other part is because he knows Skip is going to have the opposite stance no matter what, so might as well go over the top.

They talk about LeBron, not the Lakers. They don't even talk that much about AD.

Shannon talks about Lebron and Skip talks about Kawhi. It's ridiculous but entertaining

Which black-white couple does it best? They all use the same recipe, heavy bromance

SAS-Max
Jalen-Jacoby
Shannon-Skip
Bomani-Pablo (Asian instead of white but strong bromance on set, cancelled)
C.Carter-N.Wright (before fired)

I think a significant part of Undisputed and First Take is acting. I'm guessing Skip, Shannon Sharpe, Stephen A and Max Kellerman exaggerate their opinions for the sake of ratings.

Skip has always been critical of LeBron, but honestly, plenty of that criticism is valid imo. I've also heard him complement LeBron. It's just that Skip really emphasizes his criticism of LeBron, which makes him seem like a hater.

It's pretty much become WWF level at this point. They all play there parts and take sides to create as much controversy, clicks, views, comments, etc. as possible. Sadly, the majority of people absolutely eat it up so I don't see it going away anytime soon. You get guests or certain personalities that talk rationally here or there but it's becoming more rare with every passing season.

I honestly would not be surprised if a good amount of them actually believe the complete opposite of what they are heavily defending the majority of the time. It killed it for me personally since 95% of the time I know exactly what each person is going to say. You also got commentators going completely in left field constantly during games too talking about the most random things I give zero efs about.

Then you have Colin Cowherd using the most insane and ridiculous metaphors with every single subject he talks about thinking he is coming off as an absolute genius

A bunch of clowns to me which is why I can rarely watch any of it anymore without getting annoyed or taking anything serious but maybe i'm just getting older

Skip lost even more credibility after this last weekend. All he has done this season is criticize Lebron for being a high volume 3 pt shooter and missing FTs in big moments. Not once, not once, did he compliment the driving centric nature of Lebron's play against the Bucks and Clippers, nor did he mention Lebron's 24-29 from the line. He's a professional troll who thinks MJ faced the 2018 GSW every game of his career.

I haven’t seen evidence he is a moron because I don’t think he believes a lot of what he says. The more dumb/controversial his takes are then the more people keep tuning in. His haters are obviously interested in what he has to say.

It used to annoy me that Skip got rich off of being a troll, but now I kind of admire the way he has fooled and manipulated people into doing what he wants them to do. While people are complaining about his latest take on a star player, Skip is probably driving in his expensive car to his expensive mansion which he purchased thanks to the help of his haters.
