In the social media era, I’m not sure if there has been a more scrutinized or disliked person than LeBron James.
Over the weekend, a video came out of LeBron being overly excited about his son and his team accomplishing things out on the court and people found a way to spin it into something negative.
Skip Bayless was one of those people.
The notorious hater of all things LeBron took to his show and ripped for his actions, stating he was “acting out” at his son’s games because he’s been “upstaged” in LA by the Los Angeles Clippers. He went as far as to call him “attention-starved” and his actions “embarrassing.”
Dick Vitale did not agree with his former colleague.
Vitale responded to a tweet from The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch ripping Bayless with a harsh rebuke of his own.
“Come on Skip u can’t be serious / man I ‘d rather see a Dad like @KingJames get overly excited watching his son than some dude who never ever has a moment for his son or daughter . Sad when to get att. Skip u rip a Dad that cares. You r on the money KING RICHARD!”
I don’t know what Skip is going to do with himself when LeBron James finally retires from the NBA. He’ll have to find a new athlete to be outraged about for breathing oxygen on earth.
