With the Nuggets having won all the last 7 matchups against the Purple and Gold, tensions are high as the two teams prepare to battle it out once again.

Skip Bayless, renowned sports analyst known for his controversial takes on LeBron James, took to X to share his thoughts on the upcoming Lakers-Nuggets series.
