The “Undisputed” panelists are once more criticizing LeBron James a legendary player. Surprisingly, Shannon Sharpe, the host, a former NFL player, is responsible this time.
Following the Los Angeles Lakers’ Game 5 defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies, Sharpe, who is typically a fervent LeBron NFL player supporter, had some harsh words for the legendary player. On 5 of his 17 shots, LeBron scored 15 points. He made less contributions than normal and went 1 for 9 from beyond the arc. He committed 10 turnovers, five assists, and 10 rebounds.
LeBron’s performance was singled out by Sharpe as one of the primary factors in the Lakers’ loss in Game 5.
LeBron played poorly. It’s one of his worst performances overall in a long time, and that is saying a lot.
85 to 90 percent of the blame is on his shoulders.”
The criticism didn’t stop there.
He was pretty close to points as turnovers in the first half. He didn’t play well,” Sharpe continued. “His play was one of the main reasons they lost the ball game.
One of the few bright lights for the Lakers in Game 5 was Anthony Davis. Davis gave the Lakers’ final push the most effort. He finished with 31 points and 19 rebounds and was much more active than his colleagues.
LeBron, according to Sharpe, let Davis down and squandered his performance.
In 2020, James led the team to the NBA Championship, but they had a dismal season in which they finished 33-49 and missed the playoffs.
Despite this, the Lakers have one of the league’s most skilled lineups and will have a chance to contend for the championship.
Depending on who wins the series, the Sacramento Kings or Golden State Warriors will be their opponent in the second round.
