Sports analyst Skip Bayless had strong words to say about LeBron James following the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Golden State Warriors.

The 36-year-old superstar finished the game with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 38 minutes. He also missed the buzzer-beater that would have won the game for the defending NBA champions.

According to Bayless, the game vs. the Warriors was another example of LeBron becoming a fourth quarter disaster. The co-host of UNDISPUTED pointed at LeBron’s shooting percentage in the fourth quarters this season. The King is making 36% of his shots in the fourth quarter over the 15 games so far this season whereas his career number is 50%. That puts him at the 203rd place in the NBA for the 2020-2021 season.

“LeBron James has become an early-season 4th quarter disaster. I don’t know why because he’s never been this bad,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED. He also reiterated that the Lakers do not have a closer even though they have a lot of firepower.

In his 18th NBA season, James is averaging 23.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game as the Lakers hold the number one spot in the Western Conference.
