Skip Bayless the biggest LeBron James hater and a player critic who is also a sports columnist and host at Fox Sports Media Group’s Undisputed is back at targeting not only the King but the whole squad as this time he even includes the coach Frank in his attack. The Los Angeles Lakers have never been the 2020 Lakers since the bubble, as they got their young core exchanged for veterans this offseason which sometimes looks like a mistake by the front desk and LeBron James as the core is doing better with other teams and even Skip pointed this in his seven minutes rant of criticism. The expectations Los Angeles Lakers drew on paper as Championship contenders is totally different in reality as they are the most criticized team this season so far with analysts like Skip running behind them to make some changes.
The Los Angeles Lakers are currently ranked as the 8th seed in the western conference with the record being tied at 22 wins and 22 looses at .500. The team has also shifted to a centerless game-style since they need more court mobility amid a roster full of veterans and have their second best player Anthony Davis side-lined for some more weeks due to a MCL sprain. Recently they registered their biggest loss of three seasons as they fell short against the Denver Nuggets and the outcome was a embarrassing 37 points blowout defeat which isn’t really liked by anyone who supports the team.
Skip Bayless keeping in view the particular defeat and Magic Johnson’s tweet to the game threw Frank Vogel the head coach of Los Angeles Lakers under the bus just like he did a month prior. The video trends on the internet as according to him Frank is just round and around the team on day to day basis amid the inconsistent run. He also criticized Russell Westbrook and LeBron James along with side-lined Anthony Davis for their poor performance while also appreciating some part of their game which was unexpected.
Skip Bayless on Frank Vogel
Skip Bayless after pointing out many mistakes of the team jumped over Frank Vogel as he quoted: “None of that is Frankie V’s fault except at some point, you know, and I know there is one easy scapegoat. There is one fix you can make when you get desperate, you just change coaches. We see it all the time. I kept telling you I didn’t think Frankie V would make it to the New Year.” Skip still has Frank around as even though criticizing him he every times add something for his appreciation like this time he said it isn’t his fault.
This time we can’t really deny what Skip had on Frank as maybe he just predicted future. Since the front desk is hot enough to shift many players and even fire the coach away after Magic Johnson’s tweet. Frank was the first member of Lakers to be on the radar as he was blamed for the losses most of the times and criticized heavily. After the Magic Johnson tweet which focused on the owner Jeanie Buss deserving better we may soon find many players in changed uniform and a new coach for the franchise since LeBron’s prime is still on and him being on the right end the team is still not delivering to its expectations as the supporting cast keeps on falling short again and again.
