Skip Bayless in 2017. Skip Bayless on Undisputed in 2017.

Gordon Hayward suffered a horrific leg injury (initial diagnois is a fractured ankle) in his debut for the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in Cleveland, after the All-Star forward signed a four-year, $128 million deal with Boston over the offseason.

While Twitter has been (mostly) full of players, fans, and media showing support for Hayward after the gruesome injury, Skip Bayless had a very, well, Skip Bayless-esque tweet.

That drew plenty of response from Twitter, including NBA stars DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay referring to Bayless as a clown.
