Think Skip ever gets tired of dishing out HOT takes and only HOT takes? Think he’s ever just sitting on the couch with his feet kicked up and an excellent bottle of red wine in front of a roaring fire place, feeling so happy and relaxed, and says you know what, I really just want to tweet something low key and rational right now?

I mean that was one of, if not the most, dominant individual Finals performances of all time. 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists with an effective field goal percentage of 53.3. A triple double in Game 7. Kyrie was absolutely incredible. LeBron is not better than Michael Jordan. Those are just a collection of facts, each one true. Pointing that out doesn’t get me paid Skip Bayless money though.
