Ever since LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers missed out on securing their berth in the 2021-22 playoffs, the world of NBA has bundled upon clouds of uncertainty upon them. With the conference finals approaching, many have even started looking past that phase of purple and gold army. One person in particular cannot let it go easily and more particularly LeBron James, none other than Skip Bayless.
The 70-year-old sports media personality went onto urge that LeBron James has an attention deficit disorder and now wants to seek all the attention, with the playoffs reaching its business end. Moreover, the former urged how LeBron James is dying inside after missing the 2021-22 postseason in his latest rant upon the 4x NBA Finals MVP.
Bayless urges how missing the playoffs is killing LeBron James
On Fox Sports’ morning show Undisputed, Bayless lambasted King James for trying to steal the show from the postseason as he believes that LeBron needs attention.
He said, “Playoffs are just starting to heat up and this came across as – Remember me? I’m still LeBron James, so I’m going to upstage the playoffs. I’m going to upstage and I’m going to do a Q&A, come one, come all. Because I think it is eating him alive that he is not involved in these playoffs because he sees the light at the end of the tunnel. To me, this was classic LeBron who has attention deficit disorder.”
LeBron James has been a thoroughly active Twitterati since modern-day inception, having to state his views on plenty of topics and to even interact with the fans, the Laker star has done it plenty of times in the past well. But Bayless does raise a good point, the fact that the 17x NBA Champs missed the postseason with such a star-studded squad, LeBron James surely must be getting bored after not being a part of the high-intensity basketball action.
Will he be able to bounce back stronger in the 2022-23 season? Remains to be seen.
