“Blind witnesses try to hand him the award” Skip Bayless ridicules the chances of LeBron James winning the MVP this year

LeBron James

The Los Angeles Lakers suffered their third straight loss at the hands of the Washington Wizards on Monday. It was a close game with comebacks for both sides. However, it was the Washington Wizards who prevailed 127-124 after overtime. The defeat made another dent in the case for LeBron James winning the MVP award this season. He missed a crucial free throw in overtime which could have resulted in the tie moving in a different direction.

In the interview after the game, LeBron James admitted that the free-throw miss probably cost them the game. He also acknowledged that the Wizards were a good side and deserved their five-game winning streak. He continued, “I think we played well enough to win and also not well enough to win at the same time.” LeBron’s relatively poor performance sent the Twitterati into overdrive.

LeBron James’ MVP case gets laughed at:

Media presenter Skip Bayless unleashed a barrage of tweets analyzing each and every stat of the Lakers small forward. He picked apart James’ chances of getting the MVP award. LeBron had eight turnovers to his name through the course of this match. Skip Bayless highlighted this stat in one of his tweets.

Another shocking stat of LBJ was that he missed quite a lot of three-pointers in this match. Bayless did not let this go either.

LeBron James got a crucial free-throw which could have tied the game. However, he missed that and Bayless was quick to turn that into another talking point.

Should we write King James off the MVP race?

Just as one good game does not decide whether a player is in the running for the MVP or not, one bad game cannot decide that either. According to the “KIA Race to the MVP ladder”, LeBron James still holds the top spot above the likes of Stephen Curry and Joel Embiid.

Despite having a relatively frustrating night, King James still managed to score 31 points and have 13 assists to his name. That proves how much of an influence he is on the team. Even Skip Bayless acknowledged that he deserved to win the MVP last season.
