      @Mr. Q. Brooks started using profanity and Sharpe said the same thing back…I don’t see where he was wrong. If I tell you you’re too small to guard lebron, you get in your feelings & get disrespectful same energy applies 💯

      How did he stand his ground? He embarrassed himself by starting it. Then getting on the court he needed to get kicked out of the arena.

      I don’t think Shannon would be that passive aggressive with Skip. He would tell him right there, in clear, unambiguous terms, if it was an issue like that. I think he made that clarification because he and Skip are always talking about people who “apologize” but not really. At least that is my inference.

    Shannon's apology brought a master class of "Here is how you recognize your mistakes, acknowledge them, and then heartfelt apologize for them." Sadly Skip had the corners of his mouth up and momentarily looked giddy that Shannon was in the heat. It says a lot about Skip.

      @jx14aby That is not my point.
      An apology can be both rehearsed/staged AND real.
      The fact that he didn't have a choice is what makes it 'staged'.
      But at the same time I believe he meant what he said.

    I liked how Shannon apologized for his actions. I think we all get caught up in the moment of sports events and being die hard fans of our teams. This was heartfelt and you could see the remorse in his voice. Shannon you still my favorite sports host, at least number one on my Mount Rushmore of sports analysts. I also liked what LeBron said about Shannon.

    kboooj mesham 10 days ago +3

    Shannon is Pure Class! That’s what accountability sounds like. Even though it wasnt that serious he still gave a heart felt apology to everyone involved and everyone affected by it. I hope skip learned a little from hearing that especially after the Hamlin situation where he had to much pride to admit his insensitivity and also where he was throwing shade at Shannon and down playing how great of a TE he was and Hall of Fame Pedigree to try and prop Brady up when Shannon rightfully called him out for playing less than sub par

    • kboooj mesham
      kboooj mesham 10 days ago

      Skip is a pouty child that refuses to admit when he’s wrong. He clings so hard to Brady’s accomplishment’s always saying his full name hoping he can gain Brady’s favor and be close to him like how Shannon and Lebron are. But that’s never going to happen. Shannon and LeBron are both greats in their sports and that’s something skip will never be able to relate to.

  • Jack Brady

      LMAO! A football player inspired you to CHEER HARDER for a basketball team? But the basketball players on the court… did NOT? 😮😂 🤡 Humdrum celeb worship. Nothing to see here. Unless you enjoy pathetic groveling and illogical emotional entertainment from desperate fans. Raise your children and take care of your families. These guys aren’t concerned with fans & didn’t mention fans for a reason. Cheer the team and go home. Or turn off your TV. If you don’t attend games. Shannon is a Celtics and LeBron… Stan. Non-celebrity would’ve been ejected and banned. Shannon never apologized for extreme unfounded disrespect of Kyrie. He should stick with football anyway. Entire circus.

      @Sin Dilacion Do you know why it escalated. Because Shannon got up out of his seat screaming and yelling at Brook from across the court. Hes in the wrong because hes the reason it escalated

    • Sin Dilacion
      Sin Dilacion 12 days ago

      @Ian Sansan he was talking trash at a game, it escalated and a group of people started running towards him. Honestly if you think he was wrong that's fine, but it was not that serious for an apology😂😂

      Yeah because his job is making him apologize. He's also a hypocrite bastion other fans telling them that they should have trash-talk but then he trashed Hawks players and it's okay He's a hypocrite

    "I'm never going to say that that wasn't Shannon Sharpe because that was me; that was just me getting out of character. I'm sorry." This is a masterclass in public apologies. Owned his mistake, apologized sincerely, never deflected or tried to blame anyone else, said "I was wrong" four times.

    This the best PR-related apology I’ve heard in a long time. One that has sincerity, self-awareness and accountability. You can tell that as both a former professional athlete and a media professional, Shannon has had the time to see a lot of people do this wrong and he's smart enough not to be that guy.

    💯 percent props to Shannon Sharpe. That's what a good man can do when HE knows that HE was wrong about his own actions. Not every man CAN do this but the exceptional ones can. Those who continue to defend how he behaved now see that HE has admitted that he was wrong. That should be be enough for everyone. We all have made mistakes and wish that we could have handled situations better than we have in life but these are learning experiences that will hopefully make us better people in the end. I never really was a Shannon Sharpe fan but I became one when after he did this because it says a lot about the kind of man he is.

      Shannon Sharpe is actually a W person. I was originally annoyed by the altercation, letting 1 fan who is too vocal and baiting a response completely disrupting everyone around him. It was a bit much.
      He didn't want to endorse the Karen mentality that some NBA fans have, where they think they can just harass players until they get a response. I have the utmost respect for him after this apology.

Please understand we too can and will do the same so please continue to be your genuine self and express yourself when appropriate. Your humility is something that all people should admire and follow because even at times that we may be right the appropriate thing to do is show humility and take the high road. Wow!
