TNT host Charles Barkley is not a fan of Skip Bayless who has been critical of Damian Lillard in the past.
Ealier this month, Bayless called out Lillard for not being “clutch” after the Blazers lost a close game against the Clippers.
Lakers catch a break as Blazers catch a big bad L thanks to Damian Lillard, who missed both late free throws then the tying three. Clippers prevail without Kawhi or PG (in the 4th) or PatBev or Trez. I continue to ask, is Dame really That Guy? A true SUPERstar? I have my doubts.

I’m still not buying “Dame Time” and apparently the Clippers aren’t either. @undisputed. 9:30 AM-Noon ET. FS1.

Dame has since gone on an insane run, became the “Bubble MVP” and beat the Lakers in game 1 of the playoffs after Bayless called him out.
After Dame’s big game on Tuesday night, Barkley had a message for Bayless.
