Skip Bayless Absolutely Destroyed LeBron For Dunking At His Son’s Game


LeBron James is having a great offseason. After enjoying himself in the Caribbean and in Europe, he signed his brand new contract with the Lakers worth $153 million over the next 4 years.

After that, he’s basically been touring with his family, watching his oldest son, LeBron Jr., play basketball games.

So far, James let his son have all the spotlight and stayed in the background. That changed during a recent game of Bronny, when LeBron was putting on a dunk show during the Blue Chips’ pregame session.

Skip Bayless now absolutely ripped LeBron for it:


“Finally, after 15 seasons, LeBron James finally participated in and won a dunk contest … against 13-year-olds, against seventh graders! Before his son’s game. And I’m saying when I saw this last night, ‘What are you doing, LeBron?’ I nearly fell off my chair when I thought was this somehow Photoshopped-CGI-Mission-Impossible stuff? No, it happened! This was just so pathetically wrong on so many levels because first of all, his namesake son, 13-year-old LeBron James Jr., is obviously trying to make his own way in basketball. He’s trying to make a name for himself. And all of the sudden, his father is in their layup line doing contest dunks — not just shooting layups like the kids are shooting. He’s doing contest dunks.

“And I’m thinking — What if Barry Bonds at age 13 had been taking batting practice with his 13-year-old teammates, and all of a sudden Bobby Bonds, who was a great player, steps into the cage … and starts jacking 400-foot shot home runs? And said, ‘Woo, look at me.’ What would you say? You’d say, ‘Get out of his way. Let him be Barry.'”
