There is one thing more certain than the sun rising tomorrow, Skip Bayless religiously criticizing LeBron James either on his show or on Twitter and at any space where the FS1 analyst has a presence.

Recently, having gone through a rough patch with his Undisputed show partner and NFL legend Shannon Sharpe, some people expected him to lay low for the moment.

But whoever knows Skip knows one thing this 71-year-old journalist, who is one of the best-paid sports media personalities on the planet, would never do, is back down. Whether it is right or wrong (which he must never be in his court of law) Bayless goes on.

And he is certainly not missing out on unnecessarily reprimanding the Lakers’ 38-year-old who is giving it all in his 20th year in the NBA.

Being inconsiderate is one thing, and being Skip Bayless is the whole next level. This man owes his entire career to one man and one man only – LeBron Raymone James.

And when that man is on his way to creating history by becoming the NBA’s #1 scorer of all-time, he cannot be wise enough to give him his due space and speak his mind.

Skip got on to Lakers’ MVP again and claimed his chasing the record is the reason for the Purple and Gold team’s losing record.

NBA Twitter lashed out at Skip Bayless

Looks like nothing can really get past Skip’s one-dimensional thinking. As James’ big games in four of the Lakers’ last six outings have brought them 4 out of their 19 wins.

And in total, their 14 victories have come when the 4x NBA Champion scored 26 or more points. If that doesn’t speak for itself, NBA Twitter told him the same in other words.

Some teased him by bringing in Shannon.
