“Shut up”: NBA fans brutally blasts Skip Bayless for picking 76ers after Celtics eliminates Hawks from playoffs

NBA fans were quick to call out Skip Bayless after the veteran sports commentator tweeted his prediction that the Philadelphia 76ers would triumph over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Bayless cited the Celtics’ lack of focus during their series against the Atlanta Hawks, despite their eventual win, as a reason why the Sixers would be the superior team in Round 2.

However, fans were not impressed with Bayless’ analysis and took to Twitter to express their frustration with the pundit’s prediction. One fan simply tweeted “shut up,” while another commented, “Why do I feel like he just cursed us 😭.” A third fan added, “Everyone >>>>>>>>>>>>>better than Bayless.”

Bayless has long been a controversial figure in the sports world, known for his hot takes and sometimes controversial comments. However, fans were not willing to give him a pass this time around, with many criticizing his lack of faith in the Celtics.

Despite the backlash, the Celtics will have a tough road ahead if they hope to defeat the 76ers in the next round. Philadelphia boasts a dominant frontcourt led by Joel Embiid, who has been playing some of the best basketball of his career this season. However, the Celtics have a talented roster of their own, with players like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown capable of taking over a game.

Regardless of who comes out on top in Round 2, fans will be eagerly watching and waiting to see if Skip Bayless’ prediction holds true or if the Celtics can prove him wrong.

Brown and Tatum Lead Celtics to Victory Over Hawks, Set Sights on 76ers in Round 2

In a high-scoring game, the Boston Celtics secured a 128-120 win over the Atlanta Hawks, closing out their first-round NBA playoff series 4-2. Led by Jaylen Brown’s 32 points and Jayson Tatum’s 30, the Celtics are now set to face off against the well-rested Philadelphia 76ers in the next round.

Despite Trae Young’s impressive 30 points and 10 assists, the Hawks were unable to keep up with Boston’s offensive firepower. The Celtics also received a boost from former Hawk Al Horford, who contributed 10 points and 12 rebounds to the win. With Game 1 against the 76ers just around the corner, the Celtics will need to stay focused and continue their strong play to advance further in the playoffs.
