Skip Bayless has once again criticized LeBron James and the Lakers for the deal that brought Russell Westbrook to Los Angeles.

The known TV persona called out James for choosing Russell Westbrook over Buddy Hield. The Lakers have reportedly shown interest in the Kings’ sharpshooter; however they ended up getting Westbrook.


“I 1000 percent agree with your basketball analysis of this because it’s not even close,” Bayless said. “It is a no-brainer, as in ‘LeBron, you have no brains if you’re going to choose Russell Westbrook, a disaster waiting to happen, the all-time ballhog,” Bayless said on Undisputed.

According to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, the Lakers had Russell Westbrook as a top-tier option, with Buddy Hield being the back-up plan. Regardless, the LA native will play alongside LeBron and Davis, hoping to help the Lakers win an NBA title.
