Skip Bayless’ wife Ernestine has nothing but high praise for LeBron James
“You and I have never spoken about LeBron at home,” Skip responded. “I don’t bring it home [this elicited a laugh from Ernestine], so I’m curious… Seriously, until this moment, have we ever had a long conversation about LeBron James?”
“No, “I don’t bring it up because I’m afraid,” Ernestine answered. “I like LeBron, I’m sorry. I’m going to admit. I do like LeBron James. I think that he’s done wonderful things for being a role model, I know he curses occasionally, but everybody curses…”
“He curses a lot,” Skip interjected.
“But I think that he seems to be a nice guy” Ernestine continued. “Even after the game and they talk to him, he’s really calm and he’s really nice, you know, he tries. I don’t have hatred for him. He’s built schools and he’s done all these wonderful things.
“I saw him walking on Central Park South one day. I was walking and I was going to say hi to him, but I thought he was going to punch me if I told him who I was so I just looked at him from afar and I said, ‘wow, he’s really tall.’
“I don’t have a problem with him. I think he’s a nice man.”
NBA fans, as one might expect, love the fact that Skip Bayless’ wife is big LeBron James fan.
