Richard Sherman is taking some serious heat from NBA fans after his take Wednesday morning on Undisputed.

Sherman, part of the new cast Skip Bayless constructed for the morning debate show, has brought some interesting soundbites of football commentary so far in his time on the show. But with NBA season set to get underway, Sherman was forced to weigh in on the beef between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, and his take puzzled virtually everyone in the basketball world. Sherman criticized Nuggets head coach Michael Malone, who is fresh off leading the franchise to an NBA championship.

“Michael Malone has had one successful season,” Sherman said. “He will be an irrelevant, erroneous name in the history books of the NBA.”

Malone has been critical of LeBron James, mocking James’ interview during which he said he was pondering retirement after the Nuggets swept the Lakers 4–0. That has sparked quite the rivalry between the two teams heading into the new season, and the two squads face off in their season opener on October 24. Still, Sherman’s comments about Malone felt way off-base, and fans reacted strongly.
