Jared Dudley caused waves on the NBA media after releasing a 42-page book which, among other things, revealed that the Los Angeles Lakers felt disrespected by Paul George comparing himself to LeBron James. Sports analyst Skip Bayless did not approve Dudley’s comments and went after him on UNDISPUTED.

Bayless went on a rant joking about the 35-year-old’s role on the Lakers roster, calling him the team’s mascot. This season, the 2020 NBA champion is averaging 0.5 points, one rebound and 0.2 assists in 3.7 minutes per game. Bayless also pointed at the fact that Dudley played less minutes in the 2020 playoffs than there are pages on his book.

“Jared Dudley is one of the nicest guys in pro basketball and he’s found a home in LeBron’s locker room. But I’m going to disqualify this, he wrote a 42-page book after playing 31 total minutes in 21 playoff games,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.
