Skip Bayless Says He Read That Russell Westbrook Is Bronny James' Favorite Player And That Could Be A Reason Why LeBron James Wanted Him Instead Of Buddy Hield

Skip Bayless is notorious for trying to undermine the legacy of LeBron James. Bayless has been described by many as a hater when it comes to LeBron James. He often mocks LeBron James, tries to diminish his accomplishments, and makes the case against him as the greatest player in NBA history.

Bayless has had some pretty strange takes in the past about LeBron James. He recently made a strange argument about LeBron James supposedly investing money into his body, questioning how anyone can believe that LeBron spends more than Kawhi Leonard or any other NBA star on his body.

And recently, he had another strange theory about LeBron James' asking the Lakers to trade for Russell Westbrook. Skip Bayless took to Twitter to talk about how read a story about how Westbrook was LeBron's son Bronny's favorite player, and if that played a role in LeBron asking the Lakers to trade for Russell Westbrook instead of Buddy Hield. 

"I read yesterday Westbrook has been Bronny's favorite player. Could that be part of the reason LeBron pushed to acquire Westbrook instead of the player Pelinka had a deal for - Buddy Hield? What a mistake that was by LeBron. Wesbrick: So many team-wrecking turnovers & ugly misses."

Bayless has been very vocal about his dislike for Russell Westbrook and LeBron James. In fact, Bayless recently revealed that he received death threats in his home state of Oklahoma for criticizing Russell Westbrook, who was then playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Bayless' argument really doesn't have much to back it up. Bronny has been around for quite some time and will have had a lot of players as his favorites. But that has never seemed to affect LeBron James' decision to suggest trades to the front office of whichever team he is a part of.
