First Take "analyst" and ESPN WWE heel Skip Bayless gave his hot take on Derrick Rose's controversial interview, and it was the thoughtful, measured response we all expected.
Just kidding, it was completely ridiculous:
DRose, who made 34 mil for playing 10 games last 2 yrs, now more interested in protecting legs for after-basketball life. Just sickening.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 12, 2014
Sports Illustrated media writer Richard Deitsch, who doesn't try to hide his disdain for Bayless and his schtick, jumped in:
What's truly sickening is that ESPN execs champion and enable this stuff. Just a disgrace: https://t.co/Abw3PF4e8j— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) November 12, 2014
If you wanted to try to defend Bayless, you could point out that not even his First Take co-hosts take him seriously at this point, but we'd rather just let Deitsch keep dropping bombs - he's pretty good at it.
