Twitter Destroyed Skip Bayless For Dismissing Incredible LeBron James Shot as ‘Lucky’
Was it skill, or was it luck?
Monday night in the closing seconds of his team’s game against the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James hit a remarkable 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining to tie the contest at 120. James hit the incredible shot off-the-glass while fading out of bounds. It’s one of the crazier end-game shots you’ll see.
And according to Fox Sports 1’s Skip Bayless, it was a total fluke.
LeBron just got away with a blatant wlk, but was so off balance he missed the bunny layup. THEN he made a lucky three to tie.

Fans on Twitter disagreed with the Undisputed host. And they let him know about it.

@RealSkipBayless every long buzzer beater is essentially a lucky 3. Your point? Doesn’t make it any less great. Mystery how you keep job.
