Skip Bayless challenges LeBron James after incredible duel between Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo to ‘please stand up’.
LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best player in the NBA today. His impact on the game, even when he is being more passive than usual has often been the difference between defeat and victory for the Lakers this season.
So, during the two months, the King was sidelined with a high ankle sprain, the franchise was expectedly affected massively. And overall, they stand as low as 6th in the West.
With the Chosen One finally back in the lineup though, many expect an uptake in the team’s performances. Fans of the franchise especially hope they can at least avoid the play-in tournament, something that they are just a spot away from. And a huge chunk of that falls on James’s shoulders.
Skip Bayless of course found a way to get involved with the Lakers star. After watching a stupendous battle between two superstars, he had some interesting thoughts to share on Twitter.

If you missed the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets, here is what you missed.
It was an incredible game worthy of national coverage. It was incredibly close between the two teams throughout, with the average lead being at just 2 points. And a massive reason behind the game being so interesting were the performances of Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Both players scored over 40, with the Slim Reaper netting 42, and the Greek Freak, besting him by just 7 points. And at the final buzzer, the score stood at 117-114, in the Bucks’ favor.
Many took to social media strictly in admiration of the two superstars. Choosing to stick to his reputation though, Skip Bayless decided to connect LeBron James even on this occasion.
Giannis outduels the Best Player on the Planet, 49-42, Bucks hang on at home to beat Nets (without Harden). That’s back-to-back 42-point games for Kevin Durant. Your turn tonight, LeBron.

While not as harsh as some of his other comments, this one is still a bit uncalled for. After all, James has only recently returned from a serious injury. And at 36, his recovery time isn’t quite what it used to be either.
Fortunately, the NBA community will likely not pay too much heed to this comment, allowing LeBron to recover in his own time without too much pressure on his shoulders.
