What ESPN show do you like better,Mike & Mike or First Take?
Mike and Mike. I don't even know what Skip Bayless is doing on the air. He has it against Tiger, Lebron, KG, Iverson, T.O & Romo to name a few. He came from DFW and has written books about the Cowboys (u can buy them for 1 cent online). He is completely biased against Dallas (which is probably why he's there). I just think he's annoying. Those other people are just flat out dumb
I never thought anyone could be more annoying than Skip Bayless, but the Lewises may have him beat.
I'll let Jemele Hill slide, because I actually feel a little bad for her. She obviously has no grasp of what she's talking about, and I think most of her thoughts are things she reads online. As the only black female sports columnist I know of, she is not doing wll representing any of those groups.
Bayless is a moron who was at one time a good writer. He then got a TV gig, and decided that he would think of the most ridiculous thing he could, then say it out loud and get a reaction. I don't know, maybe it's too much time spent sitting across from the vapid Woody Paige?
Anyway, the Lewises now represent all that is wrong with the world of sports broadcasting these days. They take their cue from fools like Stephen A. Smith, where it doesn't matter what you say so long as you say it with authority. I think they've actually become worse than Skip Bayless, who is now made to defend himself whenever anything involving black players comes up as an issue. It's nice to see Bayless teamed up, but I wish it wasn't idiots like the Lewis boys doing it.

Anyone tired of watching ESPN's First Take cause all they talk about is Tim Tebow?
It amazes me how they search for any topic to add Tim Tebow to the discussion. Ship Bayless is so unbelievably close minded / one sided toward Tebow its sad except for the fact that he actually believes what he says.
Tebow is such a polarizing athlete and I completely understand that but it gets so old listening to Ship Bayless and his arguments. To hear him report it Tebow might as well throw passes to himself, that he kicked a 60 yd FG and that the coaches, Def, and Elway all have nothing to do with them winning.
First Take caters to the back and forth banter with Bayless and his absurd arguments and people tune in to say what contoversial things he will say next.
Did you see how Skip personally attacked Cris Carter for giving his football analysis of Tebow from weeks ago. And According to Skip he is the only one qualified to accuratley analyze Tebow and his play.
Anyway I am suprised I have not seen this type of question on here before because I like the show but am soooo sick of hearing about how great Tebow is.
And while i used to hate Skip, im slowly starting to like him. Even though he won't get off TO, thought Moss was washed up, and is always on LBJ's back.
Also i cant remember but he said something real dumb awhile back. It was ridiculous though.
But yeah Dana Jacosen knows nothin, and she aint even attractive.
Why does ESPN first take mention Lebron 100x when talking about Golf & Football?
If you asked me this a year ago, I would have given you a different answer.
But now, all I see is Skip Bayless and the rest of the attention hogs are not any worse than the common NBA fan. Haven't you seen ANYTHING that makes fun of LeBron getting attention? Even in yahoo answers?
So the answer is, the current NBA management, analysts and mainly FANBASE are, honestly, weak in thinking. They do everything to get attention. Because they choose attention over truth and honesty.
I am not trying to offend anyone but that's what I think.
ESPN first take need to make a song about Lin like they did with Tebow?
Wow man, i hate Lin for tonight because the Lakers lost, but he can definitely be adopted into the Mamba family.
Black Mamba- Kobe
Mini Mamba- Goudelock(adopted by Kobe)
Yellow Mamba- Lin(adopted by Mamba fans)
Do you think Skip Bayless of ESPN's First Take is a bigot?
I don't think he's a bigot, just opinionated, and really not really well informed. To me, he's one of those shock guys that's always trying to say something to shock people so he can keep his job. The guy works for the Dallas newspaper and constantly criticizes Terrell Owens, no matter what he does, I just don't pay him any mind, kind of like Jim Rome.
But, racism and classism is alive and well in sports and the world we live in today, I do agree with you there.
I love it when my man Stephen A. Smith puts him in his place with well informed facts, especially about the NBA.
Skip Bayless False remark about Lebron, MJ, Kobe on ESPN FIRST TAKE?
Jordan was the very definition of showboat during the first half of his career. I remember Jordan throwing a hissy fit when then Bulls coach, Doug Collins, told him to stop shooting so much and share the ball w/ his teammates. Jordan was also the biggest stat-padder I've ever seen, always making trips to the scorer's tables to check his stats. But under the tutelage of Phil Jackson, he gradually matured and learned to trust his teammates. In some ways, MJ's development is very similar to what we saw in Kobe these past couple of years.
And every superstar like LBJ, I think it's normal to showboat every once in a while until you develop your character in and outside the court...
Can I watch todays espn first take online somewhere?
Maybe not the whole thing. But I'd try iTunes to see if you can watch it or at least listen to it on there--a lot of ESPN talk show-type things are on iTunes for free. Otherwise, espn.com probably has clips from today on it.
Why does ESPN First Take feel the need to debate *LeBron's tweet* about Blake Griffin's dunk ?
Honestly...I don't understand why they stalk athletes' twitter accounts and actually TALK about them on the show. Who gives a c.rap?
I think the tweet is just fine...
I think both dunks were amazing, but I think jumping OVER a man in the middle of play is more spectacular than a mad dunk ON someone. The only other time I've seen someone dunk by jumping OVER someone was in the dunk contest (Nate Robinson). Don't get me wrong though, Griffin's dunk was nasty too.
Did anybody see that debate between Jaylon Rose and Skip Bayless on ESPN first take?
I haven't watched that, but:
Skip is a goofball and takes hits on LeBron often but, I hate when a pro player throws the "You haven't played" card.
Throwing that card is a easy, cowardly way out of an argument. You have to defend your take with facts and reason.
Not only people who haven't played at the high level can participate in an argument, but they can have a job in the league in question, like Daryl Morey (Rockets GM). While you can find cases like Isiah Thomas, one of the best PG ever, doing a horrendous job as a GM.
So, when an argument gets heated going "...well, you haven't played at this level, so you don't know...", it isn't a valid way to annul an opposing point of view.
I believe her father passed away and she has taken some time off........in regards to the new girl, she is a former professional athlete (not sure of sport) but she is terrible on the show....bring back Dana
