Another Skip Bayless rant

I know it's highly redundant to point out that ESPN blowhole Skip Bayless is seven kinds of idiot. But he's seven kinds of idiot.

Had the TV on while I was getting dressed this morning, and there was Bayless, blowholing again about how overrated LeBron James is. I really don't know the genesis of Bayless' animosity toward James -- something about the fact that James supposedly thinks he's Michael Jordan because he wears No. 23 -- but it's beyond embarrassing now. It's reached the level of utter farce.

This morning, for instance, the topic was LeBron's 32-point, 13-assist, 8-rebound night against Orlando Thursday. Most people seemed to think it was a pretty awesome night. Bayless did not, for these reasons:

1. Orlando was tired.

2. LeBron scored too many of his points when the Cavaliers were leading.

I kid you not. That was the sum total of Skippy-doo's argument.

Like I said: Seven kinds of idiot.
