In a rare turn of events, Skip Bayless compliments LeBron James for still being the best passer in the NBA, according to him. 

At 36 years of age and 18 seasons down the hatchet, LeBron James is still at the top of his game and is arguably the best player in the NBA. The fact that he’s at the top of the MVP leaderboard, ahead of Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic is a clear indication of his continued reign over the league. 

Despite James’s continued greatness, he isn’t without his doubters. A notorious LeBron James ‘hater’ would have to be Skip Bayless who’s made a career out of discrediting the 4x champ’s accomplishments and accolades.

However, in a rare turn of events, the Undisputed co-host took to Twitter to let it be known that he believes LeBron James is still the cream of the crop in a certain aspect of his game. 

Skip Bayless compliments LeBron James on his passing ability

During the first quarter of the Lakers-Wizards game, Skip Bayless seemed to feel very compelled by James’s 7 points and 3 assists, causing him to take to Twitter to let his thoughts on James’s game be known. 

“LeBron James….STILL the best passer in basketball.”

In all fairness, Skip has said on numerous occasions that he believes the ‘King’ to be the best passer in the NBA. However, he always used this ‘compliment’ as a segway into why he believes James is much too passive and doesn’t have the willingness to take over games like Michael Jordan. 

Nonetheless, a compliment from Skip Bayless towards LeBron James is a rare sighting. Bayless recently took to Twitter to announce that he, along with Shannon Sharpe will not be taking to Undisputed for a week’s time.

It’s safe to say that the LeBron slander won’t be as loud for the next week or so with Bayless confined to merely Twitter.
