*LeBron James is being slammed for what has been described as a “ridiculous celebration” to his son’s alley-oop dunk during an AAU game.
As noted by The Spun, while some have praised James for being a proud and supportive father, others have criticized him for hogging the spotlight, including Jason Whitlock of FOX Sports and Skip Bayless, co-host of “The Undefeated.”
Bayless believes that James is “acting out” because the Clippers have stolen the spotlight from him in Los Angeles.

Here’s a portion of what he had to say. Keep in mind Bayless refers to Leonard as “No. 2” because he still isn’t over the way he left the Spurs – Bayless’ favorite team.
“I want everybody to understand that LeBron has become so attention-starved because there’s a new sheriff in town in Los Angeles and his name is No. 2. Several of the NBA insiders reported that LeBron was convinced that they were going to get No. 2 on the Lakers.
…and now all the attention in Los Angeles, California is focused on the Clippers.
…so all of a sudden LeBron is thinking “I’ve got to show off. I’ve got to post Taco Tuesday videos.” That’s all you got LeBron is Taco Tuesday? But again, that’s what you have to do? Because that’s all you can do for attention right now because you are at an attention-deficit.”
Below is video of Bayless going off on LeBron:
