Skip Bayless once again took a big shot at LeBron James after the King failed to give the Los Angeles Lakers a big win over the Sacramento Kings. The 36-year-old returned to action after a 20-game absence and looked a little rusty, especially from beyond the arc. 

He shot a poor 1-for-5 from deep, including a potential game-winner triple that he missed. With the game 108-106 in favor of the Kings, Bron shot a 3-pointer that hit the back of the rim. In the end, the Kings won the game, 110-106, ruining the player's return to the court. 

Bayless took to Twitter to blast the 4x NBA champion, as usual, talking about his clutchness (or lack of), claiming he didn't get that gene that other players had in crunch time.

"If only LeBron James had been born with a clutch gene."

He reminded people that the King didn't have the best night shooting from beyond the arc and it was crazy that he attempted a triple when the Kings were up 2. 

"Why would LeBron take a last-second three with the Lakers down two ... when he had just air-balled a three with a minute left??? He was 1-5 from three."

Skip has made a living out of criticizing LeBron and this won't change for the rest of the King's career. James was out for over a month and he was just returning to the court on Friday. He looked very rusty and if you expected him to come back with the playoffs mode already activated, that is just wrong.
