Charles Barkley Responds To LeBron James

Every once in awhile the world of sports gets filled with off the court drama that keeps us all entertained outside of the game. Well recently Charles Barkley and LeBron James have been going back and forth after Charles called King James “whiny.” The moment came as Barkley said during TNT’s Inside the NBA that James was being “whiny” and “inappropriate” for stating that the Cavs needed help. James then responded, taking things to a personal level while speaking on some of Charles’ issues off of the court.

Barkley responded shortly after, stating: “I was laughing, clearly he did some homework… he Googled me and found some things. He was young when I was playing, so I appreciate that, but I’m not upset about it… my criticism was fair and I’m good with that.” He went on to add that “Some of the stuff he said about me is correct — doesn’t make the message I said about him incorrect. Some of them are intimidated about LeBron [but] I’m not intimidated at all. I stick by what I said, I’m not going to make this personal… he was all whiny last week. I’m good and I’m straightforward, I’m never going to get personal on an NBA player.” Stay tuned for much more on this coming very soon!
