Mark Cuban Calls Out Skip Bayless And The Sports Media

The Dallas Mavericks owner goes after baseless sports journalism (in particular ESPN First Take’s contrarian Skip Bayless) this morning.

Finally, somebody has spoken the truth.

Mark Cuban may have won an NBA title last year, but he could end up with more praise for giving Skip Bayless the ether.

Let’s recap the evisceration:

- Cuban debunks the notion of players caring about what Bayless says.

- Cuban attacks the myth that winning just comes down to “wanting it more” or “playing harder.”

- Cuban probes Bayless on what Dallas did to quell LeBron James in the 2011 NBA Finals, and Bayless has little to say once defensive schemes are on the table.

- Cuban delivers a meta-criticism of the media’s tendency to boil all explanations down to obvious generalities.

A virtuoso performance, all around.

Cuban’s spiel also served as wish fulfillment for those who wanted to see Bayless put in figurative stocks. This was an excellent moment of television in rebuttal to a horrendous television personality.
