Undisputed pundit Skip Bayless, who has spent much of his career taking potshots at LeBron James, tweeted Monday that he believes James has "the highest basketball IQ in the history of the game."
Of course, his compliment didn't come without a critique:
Bayless was referencing James perfectly recounting a sequence from the beginning of the fourth quarter in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, when the Celtics went on a 7-0 run.
The Cavaliers lost the game, 108-83. According to Bayless, the game was "an embarrassment" for James. According to everyone else, it was one loss in a seven-game series.
