SOUND THE ALARMS. SKIP BAYLESS HAS DONE THE UNTHINKABLE.
The universe’s most notorious LeBron James hater has shocked the world (not with a ludicrous take for once) and defended the man he has sworn to destroy.
After Friday night’s matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron gave a postgame interview complaining about the fouls on him that the referees missed throughout the game. Instead of bashing James for making the Lakers’ loss about himself, Skip Bayless miraculously chose to agree with LeBron, citing one DeMar DeRozan foul in particular.
Just watched LeBron’s postgame interview. He’s right, he doesn’t get a lot of calls he deserves. No blood, no foul. DeRozan elbowed him in the face on one 4th-q shot in the lane. No whistle.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) December 8, 2018
Wow. On a night where LeBron almost had a triple-double (35 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds), you would think Bayless would find a way to undercut The King’s success. Not this time.
Twitter users couldn’t believe what was happening. This move on Bayless’ part was as unprecedented as it gets.
One person thought that Shannon Sharpe, the co-host of Bayless’ Undisputed, must have been the man behind the tweet.
Shannon get off of Skip’s twitter.— Johnny C. (@MJKOP770) December 8, 2018
Another user was concerned for Bayless’ well-being.
Are you ok?— Dilauro (@diluaro) December 8, 2018
And then there was this guy who just couldn’t believe what he was reading.
Has Skip Bayless turned over a new leaf? If I had to guess, I would say no. But, at least we know that Bayless does in fact have a soft spot for one of the greatest basketball players to ever grace the hardwood.
Give this tweet a few years, and it may go down in the NBA Hall of Fame, right next to where the rest of LeBron’s accolades are at the moment.
