Why Skip Bayless Finds Jayson Tatum’s Workout With Kobe Bryant Problematic

2,238

Bad blood is more important to Skip Bayless than young blood.

The “Undisputed” host said on Friday’s episode he believes Kobe Bryant shouldn’t be working out with Jayson Tatum due to the rivalry that exists between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. Bayless couched his argument in the fact any success Tatum enjoys with the Celtics might come at the expense of Lonzo Ball and the Lakers.

“He (Tatum) plays for the Boston Celtics,” Bayless said. “You (Bryant) can’t do that … You have to draw the line. …”

Tatum shared a series of photos last Friday on Instagram, in which he worked out and received pointers from Bryant, his favorite player.

Bayless’ co-host, Shannon Sharpe, offers a sensible theory of why Bryant worked out with Tatum.

Bayless probably still refuses to heed Sharpe’s logic.
