KD hasn't liked him for a long time(since at least 2012). The first time he trashed Skip was in his OKC days. I don't particular remember what Skip said exactly but it had something to do with him not being happy with Russ taking more shots than KD during that stretch. KD responded by saying that Skip didn't know a thing about Basketball.


Vexationss

Sports media these days are Terrible takes that get a lot of likes>>>>Good takes and not much media recognition


WeirwoodUpMyAss

The format doesn’t work well for nuanced takes. Podcasts usually have more time to work out the hot takes.


RandomMonstar

I stick to Shaq and Chuck for entertaining takes and Lakers film room podcast for actual info. Most everything else is hot take garbage.


slice19

Terrible takes gets people commenting and arguing. There’s always some dumbass jackass who agrees with Skip trying to argue online.


HughGRextion

he called him a hater on that track him and bron recorded during the lockout too


CIAspyingonurightnow

Skip also used to say Paul George was better than Kd


Rugrats-theme-song

It was when Skip said that Russ should defer to Durant more and that KD should always take the most/last shots


BlackJediSword

Well that’s not untrue


jrod_hoff

It was in 2012 when Durant was double and tripled in clutch moments, and Brodie's athleticism took him to the rim with a hop and a skip


verylastlaugh

Skip was right though…KD just couldn’t/wouldn’t admit it publicly…he also called him “thin skinned” and that turned out to be true as well after his burner account got exposed…Skips never been my favorite…especially those “cold pizza” days…but I really like undisputed..Skip & Shannon just work better then Skip & Stephen A. Did…imho.


mondaethebarber

Yeah shannon is fucking television gold.. and skip outside of the fake hatred for bron is usually on point. Hes right way more then hes wrong and u can tell because uncle Shay owes skip like 100 bottles of diet mountain dew that they oddly use as currency on the show


K-Firangi

100 cases i am sure.


lovelove_lovelove

I can’t believe this guy made a career making millions trolling and hating on LeBron James.


yura910721

Well Bron is pretty huge host for a parasite to live off.


ranibdier

Brian Windhorst literally made his career off the guy.


khelogs

This has nothing to do with Bron yet he still manages to slight Lebron. Idk what you call that.


MoMoMemes

Obsession


Jackyrobot123

Rent free


SixGunChimp

And when LeBron retires, he can turn his sights on Bronny. Dude has years to go 😂


ZephyrTM

He already giving Luka the Lebron treatment


SixGunChimp

As good as he is, Luka has a looooooooooong way to go to fill those shoes tho. And get in better shape. Can you imagene how good he'd be if he took his body as seriously as Lebron does?


coolerthanice

He will still be bringing up LeBron when he retires. Whenever there is talk about who the current goat is that's still playing in the NBA, he'll find a way to compare and slander LeBron to whomever it is.


BlackJediSword

He was a sports reporter before half this sub was born lol.


lovelove_lovelove

He was a journalist bro everybody’s a journalist out of college.


BlackJediSword

1. That’s not true 2. You’re discrediting an actually very successful career. He was on the beat for decades just like Stephen A. 3. He plays a character- I still cannot believe people take what he says seriously. It’s all a joke.


lovelove_lovelove

He’s a certified hater… 99% of the time he’s hating on twitter not getting paid


BlackJediSword

Dawg it’s not real. How do I explain it to you?


Quirky_Average_2970

It might not be real. But it still doesn’t change the fact that they guy would a cheap and frankly shitty way to make his money. Imagine your place in the world ks literally to tear down other peoples life’s work.


BlackJediSword

I’m not saying it’s not. I’m saying it’s not a real opinion and I sincerely wonder why anyone takes it seriously.


Quirky_Average_2970

I don’t think people take his seriously. They do find it annoying just like you would find any other troll.


SeeingThings123

Then how do you explain Shannon Sharpe saying Skip basically believes almost all of his takes off-air?


BlackJediSword

Do you really think Shannon doesn’t know how to play his role on the show? They’re on the clock even when they’re not on set. That’s why they continue their bullshit on Twitter, so people like you can say “but he’s acting this way off air too!!!” Do you really think Skip doesn’t think LeBron is exceptional???


SeeingThings123

What? Skip has never said Lebron isn’t great. He calls him the greatest driver in basketball history, the best passer in the NBA currently, and acknowledges how durable he is, and still has him top 10. They may play up their takes for theatrics but these guys absolutely believe what they are spouting. You give NBA media too much credit. We don’t have the level of professionalism and proper sports breakdown like the NFL does.


Spartan596

Real or not it's annoying af, and he deserves criticism for it.


PotentialFriend8

Not sure why you’re getting downvoted, dudes be so sensitive on here lol. But yea if you’ve watched undisputed enough you can catch Skip being in character because sometimes when he says some stuff about Lebron and he has this look on his face where he’s smiling trying to hold back a laugh. Like a “we all know I’m just sht talking now look”


kiroks

He was covering the game before LeBron was in highschool LMFAO


theoldgreenwalrus

Yes this was pretty satisfying


vahnjay

19 years in the NBA and Lebron has never once even said or acknowledged Skip’s name. For all we know, Lebron might not even know Skip exists (obviously he does know though). I’m sure that drives Skip crazy. Skip probably loves being acknowledged by KD like this. If anything it just puts his name out there more and will attract viewers to his show.


bigpancakeguy

He’s 100% trying to bait LeBron into firing back. And it’s gotta drive him batshit crazy that he never, EVER responds haha


blackjesus15180

I thought last year LeBron finally fired back with the eloquent "suck my ass"


Liston08

remember when dame when at skip in the bubble, skip jumped on the slander dame train and hasn’t jumped off since. Wonder how he’s going to react to this lol


MY-NAME_IS_MY-NAME

Difference is KD has way less to prove than Dame


motorboat_mcgee

KD just doesn't give a fuck anymore lol

Yes here is the link to the tweet [@KDTrey5](https://twitter.com/kdtrey5/status/1470963127357423623?s=21)


lovelove_lovelove

I already know Shay sharpe gonna have them hot L’s waiting for skip tomorrow morning.


Vexationss

As per usual


angrylobster24

Eh not really. Skip almost always wins their bets/wagers for Mountain Dew cases.


Most_Delivery_2662

Like that matters?


Zeetheking1

Probably not unfortunately. It’s Skips show so they rarely do anything when people call skip out for his crap.


Fun-Search1113

nah sharpe always takes skip's side against outsiders. Why they are the best pair on sports tv.


lovelove_lovelove

I think Shannon has KD blocked on twitter lmao


Swaggyzilla69

I guess people don't know that LeBron and KD are friends


i_know_nothingg101

I didn’t know that


Ghost_TTV_1

They legit made a song together dude.


reduceandreuse

Was that the Island Boys jingle?


t_mac1

He only says this to get lebron attention. Skip knows lebron is the best. Hr changes best player each year. It was kawhi when he was healthy


dmherrera85

I like KD a little bit more now.


loadedryder

He knows Skip only praises him so as to insult LeBron indirectly. Probably pisses him off that Skip likely doesn’t actually believe the things he says about him.


Eder_Cheddar

Skip is a fucking clown. Just goes to show that clowns can be famous and make money.


lisuvirizwa

I don't think there's actually a professional athlete that likes Skip.


Trizzy102

People don’t realise KD and Lebron are good friends off the court. When KD was drafted Lebron took him under his wing they used to train together


khelogs

Lol! Skip cant keep his mouth off with Bron. Bron has nothing to do with KDs performance, yet he still manages to involve Bron.


LordBri14

This shit only makes people want to watch skip. 🤣 now he has more material to feed off


gleophas

Lmao,skip still gonna ride kd's dick tho...all for that sweet sweet $$$..


pepepoopoo

all i hear is sharpe saying “skip skip skip” over and over again hahahah


grehor_147

i'm sure skip LOVES that KD even aknowledges him. LeBron has never done that and he propably never will, even though he has every right to come at him. my guess is that skip will stay on air until lebron finally reacts to one of his takes or even comes to his show (maybe after bron has retires)


donald-duck23

I doubt Skip cares tbh. This could lead to ratings gold for Undisputed lol


Rating_You_Honestly

Kinda like that fat boy made a career on ESPN out of being absolutely obsessed with a high schooler, lebron doesn't like that bum either


DemondWolf

Lol


jsmiley27

lol, this is funny.


Familiar_Bar_3060

I don't think even Skip likes Skip.


Pansmoke

Tom Brady hate Skip too lmao


Wopnick

If people like you would stop reacting to every awful take this guy has, maybe he’d go away.


supremepoker

Crazy how skip and Lebron live in La and never ran across each other at social events and whatnot. Would it be on sight?


electro_report

Skip is a fucking clown, you don’t have to be a lakers or Lebron fan to see it. He’s woefully bad at his job so tries to stay relevant by giving wildly unpopular takes


KyoKuriyama

Becoz KD knows skip is lebron biggest fan but need to make a living off of hating bron and liking his opponent


TaZe026

Like skip more than kd.


Checkmynewsong

I can’t believe how many people watch and talk about this asshole. Stop turning a real sport into pro wrestling. It’s sad.


White_Nothing

Not surprising. I don't know of anyone who likes Skip.


ender23

why does KD want people to slander Lebron?!?


[deleted]

Stop wasting your time on people like Skip. If you want that kind of shitshow go watch a reality show, wrestling or any kind of "political" content.


AdamantArmadillo

Why Is The Title Sentence Capitalized Like A Book Title? It Makes It Very Weird And Unnatural To Read As A Sentence


aeminence

Durant knows he's only being used by Bayless to shit on Bron. It isnt even about actually liking KD, he's just being used as a way to jab at 'bron and KD knows it. Glad he's super upfront about it, I like the way KD has grown since the whole burner account thing.


d0000n

Well, he got 23k retweets for this so they all good.


54burnin

this belongs in a lebron subreddit not a laker one lol


waxyslave

We posting this on the lakers sub just cuz a tweet has "Bron" in it .... zzzzzz


Vexationss

Didn’t ask!


abeezy98

We postin “we posting this?” Comments on a thread we could’ve ignored just cuz we think we’re the main character?


waxyslave

Blind followers like you are the reason LeBron murals gets vandalized in LA, y'all tryna push this absolute fandom onto us OG Lakers fans, not gonna happen bruh, step back


abeezy98

Lol shut up I don’t care. LeBron has been a Laker for 3 years. You pulling out that tired argument to string me along for more attention. We watch ppl put leather in metal hoops. So yeah I ruined the fandom. Now what, kid? Edit: lol you responded this at the mere idea that someone would suggest that your comment was unnecessary. Damn attention is a hell of a drug.


waxyslave

U suck lebron's deformed toes https://atlantablackstar.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/aDaBC4O.jpg


abeezy98

Shut up. Done talking. Muting this thread. Don’t hurt yourself weirdo. Scream into the void if it keeps you from letting your rage out elsewhere. We should start treating loser behavior like this as a red flag and set up a hotline lol.


waxyslave

Hahahahaha


waxyslave

Loser behavior is simping a grown mans every move / tweet
