(WSCR) In one of his Twitter rants last week, ESPN analyst Skip Bayless may have said too much.
Bayless was ranting about how Russell Westbrook isn’t a true point. He tried to make his point more credible by tweeting “FYI: I started for high school team that lost in state finals. Coach didn’t like me b/c I shot too much and he wanted me to be more PG. … Tall for age in 9th grade, chosen MVP of state-wide basketball camp over several future D1 players…”
Here’s the problem with Skip’s story of his high school playing days: after some journalistic work by the people at TheLostOgle.com, it appears Bayless scored a grand total of 21 points in 15 games as the “starting” point guard for the 1970 state runner-up. That averages out to 1.4 points per game.
Why lie, Skip?
