On Wednesday morning, Fox Sports One’s Skip Bayless released the hot take of all hot takes, saying former Wildcat Anthony Davis was the most overrated player in basketball.

Just two days later, New Orleans big man made history, becoming the first player in NBA history with a statline of over 40/15/5/5 in a game. Last night against the Miami Heat, Davis put up 45 points, 17 rebounds, 5 steals and 5 blocks in the team’s 124-123 victory.

Check out the highlights from Davis’ historic night:

Immediately after the game, the official Pelicans twitter account clapped back to Bayless by showing the commentator’s college statistics, where he averaged a whopping 1.4 points per contest.

And then they called him out again.

Over his last ten games, Davis is averaging 32.7 points, 13 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.4 blocks, and 2.5 steals per contest.

In fact, Davis has been on the most impressive run of his career, scoring at least 38 points in six of his last nine games, including four games of over 42 points in that span.

With 1441 total points in 52 games this year, Davis has managed 68.6-times the total points Bayless scored as a senior in high school.

Stay in your lane, Skip.

      Skip is the most overrated piece of garbage in the “sit behind a desk and spout stupidity” game.

      Just the world’s most annoying troll. If he were a couple inches shorter he would fit every single definition of troll. How anyone so ignorant can act so arrogant is beyond me.

      Skip isn’t a troll. He is a moron. There is a difference. Not all trolls are morons.

    I agree Henderblue…..he’s just trying to get listeners. I seriously doubt that he believes half the stuff he says…

    If Davis had a supporting cast he’d easily be the mvp. Just look how good they were playing before Cuz got hurt. Every NBA team wants Davis. That’s the ultimate testament.

      Oh, and he won a title in college. Proves my point. Put him on the Celtics and see what happens.

    Bayless is just like Cowherd. He picks out large fan bases and says something outlandish for he clicks. Ignore the troll.

      Exactly.

      Unfortunately, KSR writers to not have ‘ignore’ in their DNA.

    Skip is the most joyless human being on earth, I believe. His daily routine is just depressing.

    Does anyone remember Thomas Robinson from Kansas saying he should have been the number on pick in the draft instead of AD? Anybody know where Thomas Robinson is playing these days? After playing for 6 different NBA teams is now in Russia playing for BC Khimki. Hmmmmmm.

    In Skip Bayless’ defense, if he only talked about the things he knows about, you’d have a lot of dead air.

    Didn’t read this post and won’t.

    KSR helping this guy troll KY fans is like Trump Jr retweeting conspiracy theories. Really bad form.

    Skip’s a moron. For years he called Tebow the next great while constantly attacking Lebron. Dude’s just a troll like Cowherd.
