Mark Cuban graduated from the IU Kelley School of Business in 1981, and has since been both broke, and a billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Cuban gets on First Take and completely rips apart Skip Bayless, calling him out on all of his antics.

It amazes me how a man as successful and intelligent as Cuban can make such a convincing argument that sheds light on the current state of sports media, and it doesn’t get nearly as much exposure and interest as it should.

Watch this video, and listen to the points Cuban makes. He talks about how generalities are now the norm in sports media. Skip, along with many sports writers, will make sweeping general statements such as LeBron James being under “excruciating pressure,” and teams like the Heat “wanting it more” than the Thunder.

These are all subtle points that we consume on a daily basis and don’t think to challenge. Take a second and think about statements like this. Who is Skip Bayless? Is he the Oklahoma City team¬†psychologist? Writers and personalities like Bayless are killing credibility of sports journalists across the world. And Cuban flat out calls him out on it.

Tweet it, re-tweet it, post it. Get the word out there.

Skip must be stopped!
