Print that. Ok, tough guy. I have to keep this short and sweet. If I start losing my cool after a post game interview on a Monday night in January against the goddamn 18 win Dallas Mavericks, safety pin boy will have me worn out by the time we get to a 4-1 Warriors victory in the Finals. The guy has the emotional capacity of a 16 year old girl trying to decide which boy in her Math class she should ask to the Sadie Hawkins dance, and every night he has to one up himself. You think his skin is as thin as it can possibly get and then it just keeps getting thinner. Here’s a quick rundown of what happened.
- Charles Barkley basically said that Lebron is the best player in the world and needs to stop whining like a little girl begging for more help.
And that’s your story. Literally, that’s all that happened. I actually wish I was kidding. It’s such a joke it makes me sick. Did The Wynn in Vegas sue Barkley for 400 large for unpaid debts? Yes they did. Did Chuck throw a dude through a window back in ’97? Yes he did. Was Chuck in the middle of the Finals trying to be buddy buddy with MJ because he knew he was going to lose? You’re damn right he did. And yes, Chuck for years has been in the camp of saying that modern day players couldn’t have lasted a day back in the golden age of basketball. So yeah, the Mound Round of Rebound is a bad boy with a lot of hot takes, he’s had them for years! That is his JOB. And personally, I think Chuck, Shaq, and the rest of that panel is hilarious. He gets paid to voice his opinion, Lebron. But that’s not the point here.
This is about the emotional instability of Lebron and his recent outcry of begging for help. Like dude, you literally just got Kyle Korver in exchange for a box of Cracker Jack’s. You’ve got arguably the best PG in the NBA, you are defending world Champions, and you play in a far worse conference. Just shut up and stop all your passive aggressive BS. He’s so emotionally unstable that it’s genuinely sad. It takes a two year old to know that he doesn’t handle adversity well but for some reason it’s at an all time low. Like you just won a ring in your home town, why do people get under your skin so easily?! “Mommy, Draymond called me the b word! I have three kids Mommy, that’s not okay!” “Mommy, Charles Barkley called me a whiner even though that’s all I’ve been doing for a month!” Just get out of our face and go play basketball.
This guy will take about five years off my life when it’s all said and done.
Whenever TNT’s next game night is I’m sure Barkley will respond with something fantastic. I think it’s Thursday? Yeah, let’s call it Thursday. Let it rip Chuck, we’re all right here ready for war.
