Skip Bayless challenges "Westbrick" to a face-to-face

Skip Bayless challenged Russell Westbrook on Sunday to join him on his television show or podcast for a face-to-face discussion regarding the "Westbrick" nickname he originated in 2012.

Bayless, 70, took to Twitter to respond to Westbrook telling him "watch your mouth" on Saturday after the analyst once again mentioned him in a tweet with the polemical nickname.

"Hey, Russell Westbrook," Bayless tweeted. "Happy to talk face-to-face about the nickname I believe I originated in 2012. JOIN ME ON TV/PODCAST.

"Let's talk about how you'll make $47 mil next yr after being THE WORST 3-PT SHOOTER IN THE NBA! Most overpaid player ever? PLEASE JOIN ME."

Skip Bayless doubles-down on Russell Westbrook criticism

Bayless did not stop there, sharing a second tweet where he says that all Westbrook must do to "shut up" the critics is to start making shots and stop turning the ball over.

The Skip and Shannon: Undisputed co-host said it's amusing to see Westbrook act like a victim when he had a "nightmare" year with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Amazing & amusing how Russell Westbrook is trying to turn himself into a victim after he was such a nightmare for Laker Nation last yr," Bayless tweeted. "All he has to do to shut up/shut down us critics is simply to MAKE SHOTS & QUIT COMMITTING SADLY COMICAL TURNOVERS. But ... it's critics' fault."

What is truly amusing is to see Westbrook take the bait and add more fuel to Skip's trolling fire.

Not the first Skip Bayless nickname debacle

If Westbrook does join Bayless on his TV show or podcast, it wouldn't be the first time an NBA player makes an appearance to defend his family name.

In 2011, Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh confronted Bayless over his "Bosh Spice" nickname.

Bosh told Bayless that he and his family are proud of their last name and feel offended when others try to mock their surname.

Bayless stuck to his character and called him "Bosh Spice" to his face, saying he has no regrets over the nickname.
