Skip Bayless is known for his high energy when giving commentary about sports. Yet, he has been very vocal about his point of view on the Lakers, especially Russell Westbrook. He speaks negatively about the team on television and social media. However, he recently created a nickname, Westbrick, for Russell Westbrook. It began to go viral, and fans are calling Russell Westbrook that name during games and on social media platforms.
However, everyone is not accepting Skip’s taunting. Check out what Nina Westbrook, Doug Gottlieb, and Stephen Curry had to say about the situation.
I’m tired you you @RealSkipBayless calling my husband out of his name. It is extremely childish. That is my name as well, and many other peoples name. You’re disrespectful, and I’m extremely offended by your behavior. You should apologize.Nina Westbrook
What are you doing? You’re 70 years old. You’ve been covering sports your entire life, you don’t call people names. You can say he’s a terrible shooter.Doug Gottlieb
The fan perspective, it is kind of B.S. when it crosses the line in terms of attacking somebody personally, their name, and not keeping it to just basketball…Stephen Curry
