Following the matchup of Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings which was a 3OT win for the Sacramento Kings, the critic and one of the biggest haters of the King LeBron James took the opportunity in his hands and started firing shots towards LeBron James via his twitter handle for not making many three’s and especially missing the two important buzzer beaters he got a chance to clutch during the matchup.
Skip Bayless targetted LeBron’s poor shooting form and highlighted that as one of the main reason for Los Angeles Lakers loss against the SacTown.
Los Angeles Lakers fell to a four (4) point defeat against the Sacramento Kings while struggling on both the ends and shooting not that good from the 3-point line. The Lakers made 34.1% of their attempted three’s that is making 15 out of 44 shots attempted. The team was better inside the line making 50% of the field goals attempted that is 51 out of 102 attempted shots.
The Lakers fell short in holding the lead and were tied for most of the game like during the end of first quarter, half time, end of fourth quarter, first over time and second over time too which at the end resulted in Sacramento Kings 3OT victory. The Lakers only had a lead during the end of third-quarter but struggling on both sides didn’t really let them hold it.
This all resulted in Skip Bayless firing shots towards LeBron James poor shooting and he also tweeted about other Los Angeles Lakers superstars like Russell Westbrook saying too much laughing and premature celebrating from his side.

Skip brought back his old nickname for LeBron James calling him “Phony GOAT” for missing too many shots and not being good at the three point line in clutch moment through Twitter.
Firing the shots Skip tweeted, “LeBron finally drove it twice in the last minute. Made 1 of 2 free throws, then got loose for a layup to tie. He’s the greatest driver of the basketball ever – but the worst late-game close-game superstar free-throw shooter ever. Another overtime.”
Following it there were many other tweets by Skip where he also mentioned that choosing Russell Westbrook over Buddy Hield, was a mistake by LeBron. Skip was also tweeting a count of LeBron’s three pointers and criticizing him with evey tweet saying to redeem yourself.
LeBron got his most points today in the OT and by driving the ball since he had a bad day shooting it, so him not driving towards the rim was not a fault but the team efforts on both the ends but especially the defense were the main concerns. The number of free throws attempted was also less and made too. The team also had quite a lot of turnovers today resulting in losing the possession.
