"(Kendrick Perkins) is simply the biggest LeBron James defender and apologist aside from Shannon Sharpe. He's at least in your league when it comes to LeBron. And he knows LeBron and he obviously played with and for LeBron," Bayless started. "So, I respect that and I honor that but it also makes me wonder about... Is there some ulterior motive here? Because... I wanna know what's the psychology. All of a sudden he just flipped on LeBron and he said 'It's over, it's time, go home.' 'It's about damn time someone dethroned King James.'"

"KD had masterpiece efforts in Games 5 and 7, two of the all-time great games I've ever watched from an NBA player this side of Jordan. Then he made one of the greatest clutch playoff shots ever only to have his toenail on the 3-point line," Bayless added on a follow-up tweet.
