After the Rockets, Nets, Pacers, and Cavaliers finalized a massive 4 team trade, there were a lot of outtakes about the same from the entire league.

Skip Bayless takes a shot at LeBron James

A lot of people consider the Nets an Eastern Conference Finals shoo-in now, considering the Big 3 they have built. People assume the firepower that Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden can make up for the diminished bench strength and lack of defense.

Skip Bayless, on the other hand, decided to take the news of this trade in a whole different light. He took this trade as a chance to take a shot at LeBron James, yet again.

He called James’ Bubble ring, a championship he won against kids. Skip believes this year the Finals wouldn’t be easy for the Lakers – that is, if they make it out of the West. He called Clippers as the biggest challenge the Lakers would face in the West.
