The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off one of their biggest wins of the season.
The Lakers showed strong character and competitiveness throughout the whole game, pulling away every time Erik Spoelstra’s side threatened to tie or take the lead.
The Heat were favored by as many as 9 points by most oddsmakers as soon as LeBron was ruled out, so this was one of their biggest upsets just yet.
That’s why bonafide LeBron James hater Skip Bayless made the most of the chance to take another shot at The King, lauding the Lakers’ supporting cast:
“Who needs AD and LBJ??? Starless Lakers just upset the Heat led by Dennis the Menace, Russ and the hardest working man in the NBA, Thomas Bryant. What a win,” Bayless tweeted.
Notably, the controversial pundit has been in the spotlight lately, but not for the best reasons.
Athletes came together to call for him to be fired and canceled after he urged the NFL to resume the Monday Night Football clash between Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills despite Damar Hamlin collapsing on the field.
Shannon Sharpe even refused to attend Undisputed upon Bayless’ tweets, and Skip claimed to be a LeBron James fan for the first time in his career, perhaps in an attempt to get people to like him again.
However, it seems like he went too far this time, and not even praising the Lakers will be enough to make this go away.
