The Los Angeles Lakers have had a very disappointing 2021-22 NBA season. Forget the playoffs, the regular season is almost over and the Lakers are still struggling to get a place in the tournament.
As embarrassing as the Purple and Gold have had this season, arguably the only positive aspect of the Lakers’ season has been the performance of 37-year-old LeBron James.
James is having one of the best seasons of his career in terms of goals. Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, the Lakers still lack the pride they need to compete with the top teams in the West.
But we can all agree on the fact that James is good, right? Well, it seems that not everyone thinks so. That’s exactly what the famous LeBron James hater, Skip Bayless, is back with a controversial take on the four-time NBA champion.
“I think LeBron realizes how disgraceful it is to his legacy. Because going from favorite to ‘we missed out on playing’ – are you kidding me – and then done, I don’t know, 15, 16 games The race is below 0.500 and that’s where they’re going now.
They’ve only been picked in one game, they’ve got eight games left, they’re at home against Oklahoma City, and that’s it, right? They only have three home games left.
He became the ultimate solo performer. He’s actually Russell Westbrook without KD in Oklahoma City. it’s him. He was just completely alone. “
No matter what James has accomplished in his career, Bayless doesn’t seem satisfied. This time, he compared the four-time NBA MVP to the time Russell Westbrook spent alone in Oklahoma after Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors.
In layman’s terms, he said James was just filling in the numbers this season, rather than focusing on helping the Lakers win games.
With LeBron injured in the Lakers’ last game against the Pelicans, it will be more difficult for the Kings to help the Purple and Gold make the playoffs.
With that in mind, Lakers fans will hope that James’ injury isn’t that series, and he can at least help the team make the playoffs to prove Bayless wrong.
