Skip Bayless doesn't miss a chance to take a shot at LeBron James and he recently jumped on to the Brooklyn Nets' hype train. Brooklyn landed James Harden in a 4-team blockbuster trade with the Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week.
That move puts the Nets as one of the biggest favorites to win the NBA title this campaign, with some even claiming they have surpassed the Los Angeles Lakers on the list of favorites. Los Angeles looks like the favorite squad to win the championship this term after the great offseason they had, adding very interesting pieces to an already talented roster.
Well, now the Nets have a serious case to dethrone the Lakers and Bayless doesn't believe that LeBron will ever win an NBA championship as long as Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving stay together. During a recent edition of FS1's Undisputed, Bayless said:
"The Brooklyn Nets are going to win a championship this year, next year, or maybe both. The window is open for 2 years. I don't think LeBron will ever win another championship."
Last season a lot of people said something similar about LeBron but at that time, it was the Clippers who were going to dominate the King and the Lakers. The Nets are doing just fine so far and we need to wait a lot until we finally have the Finals. At this point, the Nets and Lakers look very well but time will tell what is going to happen in the postseason and if we'll have another Kevin Durant-LeBron James duel in the Finals.
But, for Bayless, the James Harden trade was the start of a dynasty for the Nets and not even LeBron James can stop that.
