Lakers star LeBron James’ biggest hater is officially Skip Bayless
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has a slew of haters, but none bigger and more controversial than Skip Bayless. The Fox Sports analyst and commentator will just do everything to relate anything to LeBron, and Game 5 of the 2021 NBA Finals is just proof of that.
LeBron attended the game in Phoenix to show his support to his good friend Chris Paul. Unfortunately for CP3 and his Phoenix Suns, they bowed down to the Milwaukee Bucks, falling behind 3-2 after starting the series with two straight wins.
Shockingly enough (or unsurprising for some who knows Skip’s nature), Bayless took to Twitter to actually blame the Lakers forward for Paul’s loss. Yes, you read that right.
This is what happens when LeBron shows up to root for you in a huge NBA Finals home game.

There is just no way LeBron James will ever make Skip Bayless happy. It seems nothing the Lakers star does will change Skip’s opinion of him.
For what it’s worth, when LeBron chose to attend a WNBA game instead of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals between the Suns and Los Angeles Clippers, Bayless ripped James for not showing his support to Paul. The veteran commentator even called him “childish” for trying to “upstage” his “close friend” in what was the biggest moment of his career.
Now that LeBron actually showed his support to Paul, Bayless just found another way to hate on the Lakers All-Star.
Am I understanding correctly that LeBron took Dame to the WNBA game being played down the street from Staples at the Convention Center WHILE LEBRON'S CLOSE FRIEND CP3 WAS PLAYING FOR HIS 1ST FINALS? HOW CHILDISH WAS THAT, TRYING TO UPSTAGE CP3/CLIPPERS AT STAPLES? So LeBron.

Shannon Sharpe probably saw the tweet already, so it will be interesting to see if he reacts to the tweet when he and Skip talk about the NBA Finals once again.
