Is Skip Bayless turning into a fan of LeBron James after years of publicly hating on him?

On Sunday LeBron had a big fourth quarter that included this dagger jump shot that helped the Lakers put the Rockets away in game 2 of their playoff series.

LeBron … dagger.

Lakers even the series at 1-1

LeBron’s fourth-quarter performance impressed Bayless, who has always been overly critical of the Lakers superstar throughout his career.

LeBron set a strong early tone in the 4th quarter, and the Lakers stepped it up on defense, but the truth is, the Rockets just started missing open threes. Lakers should thank their lucky stars for Russell Westbrick.

LeBron owed his team after he scored zero in the 4th quarter of Game 1.

NBA fans were confused at seeing Skip finally giving LeBron a little bit of praise.
