Skip Bayless has made a career out of being The Guy Who Thinks LeBron James Is Bad.
On Sunday night Cleveland became the first team in NBA Finals history to win after trailing 3-1. LeBron became the only player in NBA history to lead both teams in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks for an entire playoff series. And Skip Bayless was still on Twitter trolling LeBron.

Geez, this f***ing guy.
Usually the ensuing ire and eye rolling is reserved for sports bloggers and regular folks on Twitter, but Sunday some heavy hitters came out to mock Skip, who is leaving ESPN when his contract expires in August.
Look at Very Nice Guy Rich Eisen pulling no punches.
I wonder who Scott Van Pelt is talking about?
Even Chad Johnson, a man who legally changed his last name to Ocho Cinco so people would talk about him, can’t believe Skip’s audacity.
Skip Bayless has no shame. Who can even blame him! This is why is he is a rich and famous TV man and so he will never stop.
