Skip Bayless takes to Twitter to say that Kevin Durant was a better GM than LeBron James when selecting their All-Stars for the ASG.
With All-Star captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant making their All-Star selections yesterday, there is bound to be a multitude of analysts that come out the woodworks to debate which team is better: Team LeBron or Team Durant?
The general consensus online has been that Team LeBron, once again, is much too overpowered in comparison to Team Durant. NBA Twitter junkies have already sited comparisons to the Monstars from Space Jam, claiming LeBron James’s starting lineup is outright unfair.
Skip Bayless takes to Undisputed and later on to Twitter to refute the claims that Team LeBron is better than Team Durant and says that KD had actually drafted better All-Stars than the 4x champ.
Skip Bayless congratulates Kevin Durant for drafting better players than LeBron James
LeBron James wasn’t messing around when drafting his 11-man squad as it seems he’s going for a fourth straight All-Star Game victory. His starting lineup consists of himself, Steph Curry, Jokic, Luka, and Giannis. To most, this starting 5 seems overloaded with star-power. To Skip Bayless however, seems as though KD’s selections tower over Bron’s.
Skip Bayless takes to his show Undisputed to go off on LeBron James’s starting 5, claiming that they cannot shoot. Granted, Giannis cannot stretch the floor; but claiming his inability to stretch the floor in a game that is filled to the brim with All-Stars will be his team’s downfall, is quite ludicrous.

Skip then took shots at Steph Curry’s shooting which is downright comical. Though he did not address the reserves, LeBron arguably drafted the better reserves as well, who are led by Damian Lillard.
KD’s starting 5 is no joke, however. A lineup that features Kawhi, Kyrie, Joel, Tatum, and Beal will be a serious problem. However, the reason as to why Team LeBron might have the edge over Team Durant is because Team Durant doesn’t have Durant. KD has been dealing with a hamstring strain and will sit out the ASG.
