LeBron James, “The Akron Hammer” displays consistently delivers nearly flawless performances on the court but faces significant criticism from his haters. The reason behind this is that many people dispute LeBron’s claim to be the Greatest of All Time (GOAT), leading to strong reactions.
Despite being in the league for an extended period, LeBron remains a dominant force on the court, showcasing better physical condition than several younger NBA players. One of LeBron’s biggest haters seems to be the sports journalist Skip Bayless. However even Bayless praised LeBron on his latest achievement.
Skip Bayless hails LeBron James’ milestone
LeBron James achieved a unique milestone during the Jazz vs. Lakers game on Tuesday. He became the only NBA player in history to score 39,000 points. It’s now a difficult record for the remaining rising stars to break.
However, LeBron doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. For any active NBA player, breaking James’ record appears to be an extremely difficult task. Recognizing that fact might have been even more difficult for Skip Bayless. However, Bayless can recognize greatness when he sees it.
Known for his criticism of the King, Bayless has shocked many this season with his deceptive admiration of Lakers #23. The renowned sports journalist, who is well-known for being the “Chosen One’s” harshest critic, “unquestionably” gives James’ most recent record high marks.
The 71-year-old is in awe of LeBron’s “longevity” and “durability. Taking up the case on Undisputed, he says, “This is so amazing. The pure longevity of avoiding career setback injury. I’ve never seen anybody this durable.”
It’s unusual to see Bayless ignore polite conversation and instead practically just give Bron compliments all over the place. He has recognized the four-time champion’s abilities when he felt they were necessary. However, Skip claims that the 39k milestone has “eclipsed” all other achievements.
For Bayless to skip the usual pleasantries when it comes to Bron and practically just shower him with compliments left and right, is an unusual sight. Still, it is true that he has acknowledged the 4x champion’s talents when he believes it requires them. The main aspect of LeBron’s latest achievement is the case in point, highlighting the lack of “a career-threatening setback injury.
