Undisputed host Skip Bayless is always on the hunt for prey, and the latest dismal 128-94 Los Angeles Lakers defeat calls for a great opportunity for him. And who else would be his target but his long-time NBA prey, LeBron James? Bayless seems to have crossed the wrong foot with him ever since he was drafted in the NBA.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis have it upon their hands to carry the legacy of the Lakers. But with Davis sitting out the last game against the Rockets, James had a hard time in the last game, which fell in the favor of Skip Bayless.

It has been a dreary season for the LA Lakers. With 3-5, they’re 4th in the Pacific Division. They just emerged from a 108-107 defeat against the Miami Heat on Monday before this shattering loss from the Rockets. Star player Anthony Davis has sustained a hip adductor injury and sat out the last game. Meanwhile, LeBron James scored 30 points and three blocks.

In 2014, he spit more fire when he opined that Johnny Manziel would have been “even bigger in Cleveland than James.

The good thing is LeBron James is mature enough not to incite drama with public responses to Skip Bayless’ criticisms. Hopefully, the NBA champion will bury Skip Bayless’ criticism and prepare for the next game against the Phoenix Suns on Friday.
