LeBron James added to his long list of accomplishments by leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a 25-point comeback victory Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
He scored 17 of his 37 points in third quarter and is now 224 points shy of the NBA’s career scoring mark. While basketball is a team sport, James was the main force in the win. But his longtime critic Skip Bayless of Fox Sports 1 chose to credit James’ teammates instead of the soon-to-be 19-time All-Star.
“LeBron has plenty of help, even without AD. Lakers storm back from 25 down at half, outscore Blazers at Portland 75-41 in the second half,” Bayless tweeted. “Plenty of help from Thomas Bryant, Schroder, PatBev. Way to go, guys. Good luck vs Clippers on Tuesday.”
This is nothing new for Bayless. He’s carved a niche by faulting James more than praising him. It started in 2010 when James created a “super team” by joining the Miami Heat, teaming with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.
