Exposed: How Skip Bayless Manipulated Giannis’ Comments to Create Fake Drama


As sports fans, we often see media outlets manipulate stories for clicks and attention. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Skip Bayless did when he took a short clip of Giannis Antetokounmpo reading a cue card on The Daily Show and tried to make it seem like Giannis was talking trash about Kevin Durant.

We’re here to set the record straight. Giannis wasn’t even giving his own opinion, he was simply reading a cue card that said, “You keep joining super teams to win NBA titles. How about we work out together sometime so I can teach you how to carry your own team?” What Skip Bayless conveniently left out was the very next line where Giannis apologized, was embarassed of the words, and praised Durant.

But don’t just take our word for it. Hasan Minhaj, host of Patriot Act, recently spoke out on the issue and exposed Skip Bayless’ misleading narrative. In a 7-minute video, Hasan explains how Giannis was simply reading a cue card and how Skip Bayless manipulated the situation for clicks. It’s a must-see for any NBA fan who’s tired of fake drama and misleading narratives.
