Skip Bayless: ‘Undisputed’ Host & LeBron Hater Says 4th NBA Ring is ‘Fraudulent’ / WATCH

Skip Bayless - LeBron James

*Well, it’s a done deal. The Los Angeles Lakers, behind the spectacular play of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and a supporting cast including Rajon Rondo and others, got the job done on Sunday and won the 2020 NBA Championship against the Miami Heat.

The win was the Lakers’ 17th over all and their first since 2010. The win also marks the 4th title for James who’s two titles shy of tying Michael Jordan.  Speaking of James, a few days ago, he said that he doesn’t think about his legacy, and that it will “be told the way it’s supposed to be told.”

Well, sportswriter/commentator Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have a lot to say about LeBron winning a championship with Lakers ’cause that’s what they do. However, what’s got LeBron and Lakers fans upset is Bayless saying that LeBron James’ 4th ring is fraudulent and to get it, he got every break in the book.

Wait. What?  Of course if you’re a Lakers or Lebron hater those words are like music to your ears.

Check out what Bayless and Sharpe have to say in the “Undisputed” video above.

If you’re wondering what Lebron James is thinking/saying about Bayless’ accusation, so far he’s keeping his thoughts to himself. But we think we know what he’s thinking. Just check out what he said after being presented the the Finals MVP trophy about wating his “damn respect.”

“It means a lot. It means a lot to represent this franchise,” he told ESPN after Game 6.

“I told Jeanie [Buss, Lakers owner] when I came here that I was going to put this franchise back in a position where it belongs. […] For me to be part of such a historical franchise is an unbelievable feeling, not only for myself, but for my team-mates, for the organization, for the coaches, for the trainers, everybody that’s here.

“We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka, Lakers general manager] wants his respect, coach [Frank] Vogel wanted his respect, our organization want their respect, Laker Nation want their respect and I want my damn respect too.”

*“It Belongs To Me” by gospel duo Juan and Lisa Winans featuring Marvin L. Winans has landed at No. 9 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart this week.

The couple’s first non-holiday track, released on Dare Records, marks their first time charting together as recording artists. “It Belongs To Me” is a beautifully rendered and timely message of faith and assurance, needed during the world’s current time of social and political unrest.

“Having ‘It Belongs To Me’ reach the top ten means that people are hearing the song, and that makes me proud and grateful because I truly believe this message of hope is a much needed one,” says Juan.

“It’s incredible to know that this declaration of faith and hope is reaching so many people,” adds Lisa. “We’re so grateful, and our prayer is that the listener would internalize this message and begin to sing, speak, and shout ‘It Belongs To Me’ over every area of their lives. God is able.”

*“Breakfast Club” co-host Charlamagne tha God said he understands why some young Black voters support President Donald Trump, specifically Black males.

During his appearance on Don Lemon’s CNN show on Tuesday, the radio host was asked what he wants from the presidential candidates.

“When it comes to black people you see who maybe are showing support for Trump, I think it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He’s directing ads toward them. They are a group that never get courted,” Charlamagne said, New York Post reports. “Black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think everybody else in the black community and black families are going to fall in line.”

“Trump is targeting young black males in promos and marketing. It works,” Charlamagne said.

Lemon then asked if Harris will attract Black voters to the polls.

“Absolutely. I mean, when we were pushing for Joe Biden to pick a black woman as his his VP, Senator Harris was who I had in mind. And I’m voting for Kamala Harris, I’ll tell you that in a heartbeat. I’m not necessarily voting for Joe Biden,” he said.

Charlamagne called Harris a “political change agent” who can lead the country into the future, “because I’m gonna be honest with you, Don, I’m just so tired of like old white male leadership in politics.”

The media personality has made clear that he is voting for Harris instead of Joe Biden.
