Skip Bayless took to Twitter and reacted to the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James advancing to the 2020 NBA Finals.

Bayless was not impressed by the achievement, calling the Lakers’ playoff run ‘the easiest path’ for LeBron James.

“This is LeBron’s easiest path to a ring: KD/Kyrie decided not to play. So LBJ got to beat a 35-39 Portland (and Dame got hurt), then the Rockets after Danuel House broke house rules, then the Nuggets instead of Kawhi’s Clippers, and now maybe the overachieving Heat. Meant to be,” Bayless tweeted.

James and the Lakers defeated the Nuggets in Game 5 (107-117) and won the series (4-1).

The Lakers return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010, while this will be the 10th appearance of LeBron James in the NBA Finals.
