"He got so light-skinned in the Finals I couldn't see him anymore!"-Skip Bayless is under fire for controversial remarks about Stephen Curry

Skip being controversial as usual!

Skip Bayless and Stephen Curry

There is no one as well renowned as the infamous Skip Bayless regarding controversial analysts and hot take hunters. Usually, LeBron is on the receiving end of Skip's hate, but with James being long gone from this season, Skip has found multiple victims to scrutinize. From Luka, Giannis, and Tatum to lately Curry. And boy, did he cross the line regarding Steph.

Bad taste of humor

Despite being 70 years old, Skip still tries to keep up with the modern culture and slang, being active on social media and seeing the way young people communicate. He often tries to incorporate trending phrases and stereotypes into his shows, and it's pretty funny to see a lot of the time, but sometimes it's just too much.

For some reason, Skip has been on Curry's case throughout the playoff run, despite being the undisputed #1 on a championship team. Curry finally stepped up in the Finals and won his first Finals MVP, but Bayless being the stubborn individual he is, isn't willing to accept that fact.

He went a tad too far in trying to describe how Curry underperformed when it mattered in the Finals by bringing in racial remarks:

"I don't care what Twitter says. I don't care what anyone says, I just know what I did and did not see from little light-skinned Steph. There have been too many times when he got so light-skinned in the Finals I couldn't see him any more, because he turned into a ghost. He just went 'Poof!' right before your very eyes."

Skip Bayless, Undisputed FS1

Just the other day, we wrote about Nick Young being problematic by saying the exact same thing about Jayson Tatum, and now we have Skip repeating Nick's mistake. He probably didn't mean anything ill-intended by it, but it's still a really tricky, risky, and unnecessary comment that won't sit well with a lot of people.

But that is just the way Skip is. He says whatever he wants about whoever, and that is precisely why he is so popular in the world of plenty of NBA analysts. If push comes to shove and Skip gets a bit too much heat for this, he will probably issue an apology, and everything will be like nothing happened, but people in his position should really be more careful with their words.
