Skip Bayless is an impressive hater.

Skip Bayless is arguably a generational hater. It isn't common for someone to be as much of a hater as Skip is. However, Bayless is a one-of-a-kind individual. Whether or not that is for better or for worse is really up to you to decide. Regardless, it has made Bayless some big bucks.

Bayless typically loves to hate LeBron James. Although, with LeBron looking to retire in a few years, the sports commentator needs a new target. For now, it seems like that is Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks. No matter how well he does in a particular game, you can be sure Bayless will say something about it.

Skip Bayless Vs. Luka

Last night, Doncic scored 60 points while notching 21 rebounds and ten assists. No player in the history of the NBA has ever had this stat line—not even Wilt Chamberlain has never accomplished this. However, it still was not enough to make Skip happy as he delivered a baffling take on Undisputed.

“I’ll go to an eight on the impressive scale. We have to take into account the opposition, which was an embarrassment. The Knicks were overmatched against Luka," Bayless said. "Four of the five best players weren’t even playing for the Knicks. The Knicks played all of OT with the same five guys. They were overpowered and overmatched, it’s shameful."

Instead of giving Luka props, he blamed the other team for his great performance. Overall, it is yet another case of some amazing generational hating from Bayless. At this point, you just have to expect it.

If you appreciate quality basketball, then you can see Luka's best highlights below. Let us know what you thought of Luka's game in the comments section.
