LeBron James recently said he doesn't have a relationship with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. FOX Sports personalities Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discussed that news on Wednesday's episode of Undisputed. 

In a stunning turn of events, Bayless revealed he's on James' side in this situation. 

"I'm on LeBron's side. I don't love the way Kareem has criticized him," Bayless said. "It just doesn't seem fair to me."

Bayless' comments on this situation have received a lot of attention on Twitter. 

For starters, some fans are shocked that Bayless is actually defending James. 

"If you don’t know @RealSkipBayless you must understand this is saying something coming from him," one fan said. 

"I can't believe my ears Skip," another fan wrote. 

"This one team I agree with this dude," a third fan tweeted. 

Bayless' comments also went viral because fans find them to be ironic.  

"You’ve been doing it 7 days a week for 20 years," one person said.

Even if Bayless is right in this situation, it seems a bit hypocritical to call out someone else for criticizing James.
