CJ McCollum and Skip Bayless get into a Twitter beef over Kawhi


It seems that now that LeBron James is not in the playoffs, the notorious FS1 analyst Skip Bayless, known for his controversial takes has found his new scapegoat with which he will always manage to find a flaw. The hero of Toronto, Kawhi Leonard.

Bayless wouldn’t stay quiet, as he decided to respond and use this as a promo for his show on Monday:

Obviously, Skip Bayless is a long-time fan of the San Antonio Spurs and was one of the biggest Kawhi supporters through the years.

He explained this morning on Undisputed for the 100thtime how he feels Kawhi betrayed the Spurs and faked his injury last season, just so he could he get shipped out of San Antonio, so that’s why he will never forgive him or give him props for winning with Toronto. Just a classic Skip Bayless publicity stunt.
