If you wanted to see the horrific ankle injury brand new Celtic Gordon Hayward suffered last night in the NBA's nationally televised season opener against the Cavs, you've already seen it.
So we're not going to post it here. But we are going to show you a Tweet that professional FS1 hot-taker Skip Bayless posted about the injury.
If Gordon Hayward is gone, maybe for the season, LeBron's path to losing a sixth finals gets even easier.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) October 18, 2017
It's pretty solid analysis. However, a lot of folks believe the flip way in which Bayless responded to Hayward's visually disturbing injury was in bad taste.
You’re a clown for that tweet after a man gets hurt with a potential career ending injury! Shit bigger then basketball!— DeMar DeRozan (@DeMar_DeRozan) October 18, 2017

What do you think? Was Skip out of line, or is everyone being too sensitive?
