This will go down as one of Skip Bayless’ most embarrassing times on TV with FS1… While Bayless is already known for making extremely ‘hot’ takes, it’s rare that he would reporting on fake news. To be fair though, he really got tricked into this one and he isn’t the only one. Infamous troll @SportsTalkBarry is known for changing his profile picture to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski and sending out tweets to trick unsuspecting people. Well he got Skip with this one:
Sources tell ESPN that Chris Paul repeatedly made fun of James Harden for having "manboobs" during practices over the last 2 seasons. Several times Harden broke down into tears and had to leave the practice facility. No surprise to see Harden wanting Paul out now.

Shockingly, you’d think that FS1 being a Fox affiliate would warn guys like Skip about fake tweets and to double check your sources, well, Skip didn’t and got caught using it as a source today.
