LeBron James checked in at No. 2 on the USA TODAY panel ranking of the 75 greatest players in NBA history. The top spot belonged to Michael Jordan. 

The full rankings, released this week, caught the eye of someone over at Fox Sports 1. "Undisputed" with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe dedicated a full 11-minute segment to the list.

"That USA TODAY actually put LeBron James No. 2 on the all-time list? You're kidding. What are you talking about?" Bayless said. "This is nothing but a politically correct choice. It's because they don't want to burn the bridge to LeBron and his inner-circle, who are very powerful."

"LeBron James is disqualified from the second spot on this list," Bayless said before criticizing the star's free throw shooting.
