After a 13-game hiatus, LeBron James finally returned, but the Lakers were unable to defeat the Bulls and move up in the Western Conference standings, which, according to Skip Bayless, are asking to be won.
And you can be sure that the seasoned Fox Sports expert would pay close attention to any failure on The King’s part. That is what transpired on Sunday evening following the Bulls’ experiment with a very small starting lineup’s success.
Only Nikola Vucevic, who is over 6 feet 6 in height, played for them. Despite this, Patrick Beverley, a former Laker, made a token gesture for LBJ by convincingly winning the game.

After the game, Skip posted on Twitter, “Well, well: LeBron’s first game back concluded with PatBev doing a little fake-and-wheel jump hook over him, then doing too little about a foot off the floor,” expressing his happiness. The bulls won with ease. In all honesty, expected.

And it happened after Beverley threw down a challenge in an effort to eliminate the Lakers from playoff contention. If they don’t, this loss will be important.
One of the top 75 NBA players of all time has recently been out of form. Despite his injury issues, he had an All-Star-caliber season. After Beverley’s challenge, he was unable to even keep his word.

Yet when Pat Bev accepted his challenge to play against his team, he could only muster 15 points. In the past eight games, he had scored less than 20 points four times.
They only go as far this season as Davis can carry them, no matter how well LBJ performs even after he is fully fit. And if he continues hitting inconsistencies, he might only advance to the first round of the playoffs.
