Skip Bayless caught telling ducktales
 

 


A few weeks ago, ESPN talking head and Oklahoma City native Skip Bayless took to Twitter to complain about Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. The comments were really nothing new or insightful, just the typical “Westbrook’s not a point guard!!!” rhetoric that people say or think or tweet (me included) each time Russ heaves a contested 20-foot jump shot or shoots a wild lay-up while Durant or Harden are wide open for a three.

Then, in what has to be interpreted as an effort to make himself appear more credible to his 500,000 Twitter followers, Skip sent the following “FYIs” about his high school playing days at the Northwest Classen High School:

Yep, Skip Bayless was a high school basketball star. Therefore, he’s much more qualified to provide insightful commentary on the Thunder or give LeBron James funny nicknames than you are.
Or is he?
Over the weekend, we acquired through the Ogle Mole network some scans from the 1969 and 1970 Northwest Classen High School Yearbooks. Not coincidentally, that was Skip’s junior and senior year at the once suburban high school. The yearbooks contain team photos, season recaps and even individual player stats for the basketball team. Basically, they let you know if Skip’s claims of high school basketball glory were true and accurate, or if they were just wild lies pulled from the a.ss of the elder douche bag of annoying sports commentators.
We’ll begin with the 1969 yearbook. That was Skip’s junior year of high school, and the proud moment in his life when he became leader of…the JV team. Here’s a team photo of that JV squad. Skip is highlighted on the top row.


Here’s the season recap for the JV ballers. Skip is mentioned, along with three sophomores, as one of the leaders of the team

Sometimes high school juniors do play for both the JV and Varsity squads, but that doesn’t appear to be the case for Skip. Although his name does appear in Varsity basketball photo for the 1969 season, his name doesn’t appear on the stat sheet. Therefore, it’s pretty safe for us to a.ssume that Skip didn’t play high school varsity basketball until 1970, his senior season.
-
1970 Season – Skip’s Senior Year
Knowing that Skip spent his junior year leading the JV team, it’s probably not too far-fetched to think he dramatically improved during the off-season and spent his senior year as the starting point guard for a team that would finish the year 20-2 and as the runner-up for the state title.
Actually, that is kind of far-fetched, but obviously an esteemed, professional and trustworthy journalist like Skip Bayless wouldn’t make-up a trivial lie about leading his high school basketball team. Let’s see if the yearbook backs him up.
Here’s a picture of Skip shooting layups in his warm-up jacket and nutters.

Here’s the team pic. Skip is the highlighted player wearing number 23. This was before every basketball team’s best player wore the number 23. And just to clarify, we highlighted Skip to make him easier to find…not to make you believe he’s the God that Skip already thinks he’s become.

Stats don’t lie, right? Well, for the sake of Skip Bayless’ credibility, let’s hope they do. Check out the individual stats for the 1970 Northwest Classen High School basketball team. Remember, this was the great team that Skip allegedly started for:


[pic - click to view]



Yep, Skip 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. Considering his coach didn’t like him because he “shot too much,” you have to wonder how low his field goal shooting percentage was. And thank God we don’t have Skip’s stats for a.ssists, rebounds or turnovers. It would be sad to see John Hollinger’s brain explode while trying to figure out Skip’s PER.
-
Anyway, it’s pretty damn obvious that Skip Bayless over-exaggerated blatantly lied about his high school basketball athletic prowess just so he could appear more credible to his 500,000 Twitter followers. That’s pretty sad. It makes you wonder what other things he’s lied about during his 30+ year career as a well-known celebrity sports journalist and commentator.


Maybe he’s the sports writing version of Scott Templeton and cited fake sources or just made things up in order to gain a following, like you know, claiming an A-list quarterback is gay. It wouldn’t surprise me, because if you’re going to lie about something that’s as dumb and stupid as your high school basketball career, you’ll probably lie about anything.

dude misrepresented himself badly. technically he started for the jv squad but saying you started for your high school team that went to the state finals, most people a.ssume varsity. thought he could just say some sh*t and no one would find out . and i don't even get why that would be relevant with his argument about westbrook. he's trying to say he was the high school version of westbrook of an all white team (JV no less) that most likely played other all white teams in '69? and because of this fact he is a cautionary tale for russell westbrook and the thunder? this is the height of buffoonery. i agree with him to a degree that the dynamic between russ and KD isn't championship success but to use this as a reason is laughable. with all that said i still like skip but he looks really foolish for this.

if they ever brought this up on first take (which they won't) you know he'd be in the production meeting like
