Skip Bayless, Bronny James, and LeBron James

LeBron James has many haters, but we all know that the most notorious and well-known of them all is who other than Skip Bayless. The FS1 analyst has been on LeBron's case for years, and with James slowly getting close to the end of his career, the question of Skip's next target has been up for debate. From all the young stars coming up, Skip could take and scrutinize for the foreseeable future, it seems like Bayless is going to keep it in the family, going after LeBron's son Bronny James.

Backhanded compliment

The California Club team, which has both of LeBron's sons on their squad, Bronny and Bryce, has been doing a Euro Tour, playing against various young select teams in different countries. Their game against the select French team yesterday made waves after Bronny threw down a vicious right handed-poster, reminiscent of his dad.

Naturally, it being Bronny and the play being legit impressive, the clip went viral and got a lot of positive reactions from the basketball world. But of course, there had to be an outlier, and who else but Skip Bayless found fault in the play.

Criticizing a 17-year-old kid for not dunking it with his other hand when he made a play even the top NBA guys would be impressed is top-notch hating. Also, adding a LeBron "compliment" into the mix to degrade the young Bronny only further proves how much of an operator Skip is. Far to say, the basketball world let him know he crossed the line.

Crossing the line is nothing new for Skip Bayless, especially when LeBron James is in any way involved with the topic. Even though LeBron is very protective when it comes to his children, he will probably ignore all of this, just like the countless other disses from Skip towards him and anyone around him.

After all, it's the best response and one of LeBron's most remarkable feats that he actually never acknowledged or responded to his biggest hater. You just know it eats Skip alive.
