Skip Bayless compares Jordan to LeBron yet again
LeBron James recently responded to Kyrie Irving’s statement on James not being a crunch time player, saying he was hurt by the comment.
So on the most recent episode of Undisputed, Skip and Shannon Sharpe sat down to discuss this comment by James.
Right off the bat, Skip said, “Can you imagine MJ taking anything this seriously or personally?” Shannon Sharpe responds with an astounding, “YES! He brought the guy who beat him out for the varsity squad, 25 years prior, to his HOF ceremony.”
To Shannon’s astonishment, Skip defended Jordan saying, ‘That was out of anger, LeBron’s was out of hurt!”

Is this a fair comparison by Skip Bayless?
One of the biggest memes of 2020 was a GIF of Michael Jordan saying, “And I took that personally,” which was taken from The Last Dance documentary.
Jordan also quite infamously kept All-NBA point guard Isiah Thomas off the 1992 ‘Dream Team’ out of pure spite.
Though Michael Jordan’s pure love for winning trumped all else, he wasn’t without his moments of spite and negative emotion.
