Skip Bayless is one of the most notorious and bombastic analysts of all time.
Between his hot takes and unique way of delivering them, Bayless has carved out a special, highly-polarized place for himself in the sports world.
While Bayless has no shortage of opinions on various athletes and leagues, one has earned his ire above all others: LeBron James.
With LeBron’s career winding down, many wondered how Bayless would move forward without his most notorious punching bag. This past week, an answer emerged: he will turn his sights on LeBron’s eldest son, Bronny.
In response to a now-viral dunk by Bronny, Bayless offered this reaction:
Hey, Bronny … impressive. But your dad would’ve dunked it left-handed. You sure got away with it, though.

The backlash to Bayless’ decision to target Bronny was swift. Even from his own wife, Ernestine.

That prompted many to go back and learn more about Ernestine, which in turn led to this photo going viral once again:

Ernestine has played a significantly more notable role in Bayless’ coverage in recent years.
And that is to say nothing of just the feuds Bayless maintains on his own, like with Russell Westbrook’s wife Nina.
All in all, if nothing else, Bayless’ comments about Bronny confirm that he has a contingency plan in place for when LeBron finally calls it quits.

LeBron, Bronny and everyone else will ultimately come and go as the years pass.
But Bayless and Ernestine? They’ll be around forever, it would appear.
