Once again, Skip Bayless has LeBron James in his crosshairs. Venting his frustrations on social media, Bayless didn’t hold back in criticizing the star player following James’ lackluster performance in the second half against the Denver Nuggets.

What Did Skip Bayless Say?

Bayless wasted no time in calling out LeBron James for the loss, particularly highlighting his performance in the latter part of the game. He questioned whether James was trying to make a statement after facing criticism for his fourth-quarter struggles in previous matchups against the Nuggets. Bayless speculated on James’ demeanor on the court, wondering if he was simply allowing his teammates to take charge of the offense.

Expressing his disappointment, Bayless bluntly stated, “I just watched LeBron pout for the last 9 minutes of the game.”

Did LeBron James Have A Bad Game?

While LeBron James didn’t have a terrible game statistically, his impact waned when the Lakers needed him most. Despite scoring 27 points and contributing 8 assists and 6 rebounds, James failed to assert himself during the crucial moments of the match. His performance was notably quieter in the second half, ultimately hampering the Lakers’ ability to mount a comeback.

As the Lakers look ahead to the next game in the series, they’ll be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes and an end to their losing streak against the defending champions.
