LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever live, but he is also probably the most critiqued athlete of all time. Each and every action of LeBron is judged, and he is one of the most-watched players in the league. But there can be no bigger than his biggest critic, Skip Bayless.

Skip Bayless has been one of the most vocal LeBron critics and he has been on him since his rookie year. He doesn’t acknowledge LeBron as the greatest of all time and calls him the fake GOAT. He has trolled him for several years now and downplayed his achievements. Many fans and analysts call him the biggest LeBron hater.
