Undisputed co-host Skip Bayless makes yet another ruthless accusation at LeBron James, shames him for a poor performance.
The Los Angeles Lakers lost 114-89 to the Utah Jazz tonight. This marked their fourth straight loss and the fifth loss in the past six games. This is the longest losing streak the Lakers have had ever since Anthony Davis joined them.
The Lakers are on a four-game skid right now, and the absence of both Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder has clearly impacted them. Tonight the Lakers looked completely out of their element. They seemed like they running on fumes, and lacked energy and motivation.
The Jazz used it to their benefit and had six players score in double digits. For the Lakers, LeBron James scored 19, Markieff scored 12 and Montrezl Harrell put up 16 points. No other Laker could touch the double digits.
“LeBron James said he doesn’t get tired, take him on his word”: Skip Bayless
Even though Skip is on vacation, he still could not stop himself from tweeting about what’s going on with LeBron James and the Lakers. Skip made multiple tweets tonight, talking about LeBron James and how his poor performance is causing the Lakers their misfortune.
A lot of LeBron James stans are blaming fatigue for his performances as of late. However, Skip does not want to hear any of it. LeBron himself had said he does not get tired, and Skip would like to hold LBJ to his word.
I don’t want to hear any more “tired” excuses from LeBron’s apologists. He said before the season he’d “cherry pick” games to miss the first two months. He has missed zero as he chases Kareem’s all-time scoring record. He recently said, “I don’t get tired.” Take him at his word.

Before the start of the season, LBJ had also said he would choose what games he wants to play in the initial stages of the season, but he has not been able to do so. Skip blames it on LeBron wanting to chase Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s record, but it could be due to AD’s absence.
Whatever the case may be, a breather during the All-Star break might be what’s best for the Lakers.
