We don't really have an official ruling on anything in the NBA until Charles Barkley speaks on it. So after LeBron's tweet about his mental hit list and all the talk coming from Miami, Chuck weighed in on ESPN Radio 103.3 with Galloway and Company.

"I heard about LeBron's little tweet today that he's remembering everybody who said anything bad about him," Barkley said. "And he said 'everybody.' Well, I want him to make sure that he puts my name on that (list) ... I thought that his little one-hour special was a punk move. I thought them dancing around on the stage was a punk move, and I thought he should've stayed in Cleveland. Him joining Dwyane Wade 's team was very disappointing to me."

See, that's why everyone loves Chuck. He tells it like it is, or at least, how he sees how it is. Barkley continued:

"He's got enough people kissing his ass with his family and all the people who work for him," Barkley said. "We don't have to tell him what he wants to hear all the time ... That one-hour special, them jumping around on stage like punks, that wasn't cool to me. From a basketball standpoint, I wish he had stayed in Cleveland, and if he takes that as criticism, so be it."

It's hard to disagree with anything there. Everything turned quickly into a spectacle which only made the new trio in Miami that much easier to dislike. And it doesn't sound as if Chuck is exactly terrified about landing on LeBron's mental list of death. As he put it towards the end of the interview, "He knows where I'll be, I don't run. I'm on TV every week, I'm easy to find."

You cant compare what they did in LA!!!! Did the Lakers have a 1 hour special???? NO! Did Shaq have people saying will he go here will he go here???? NO AGAIN! Also the Lakers WON!!!!!! Lets not forget that. Kobe got Odem and Pau Pau good players. Not D Wade and Bosh and have an ESPN this is where I'm going show. Bark said the dancing and the ESPN thing was a punk move. Which it was.

Barkley unlike most of the other media tells it like it is.  Lebron and his cohorts are punks.  He'll never be thought of in the same way that Jordan, Bird and Magic are...no matter how many tittles D Wade wins for him. 

Actually, Durant is the guy everyone should be paying attention to.  They have a heck of a team over there.  If they continue to improve don't be surprised if they get in Wades way of winning tittles. 

Barkley isn't always right.  I don't always agree with what he says.  But at least he doesn't pussyfoot around the questions and issues.  Love him or hate him at least he'll give you an honest answer.

What's got your panties in a bunch?   Barkley is 100% right and a majority of NBA fans, reporters and NBA personnel (GM, COACHES and PLAYERS) agree with him.  Whether you like Barkley or not, everything stated in this article is a reflection of the majority, so, by coming on here and calling him a dumba$$ because he speaks his opinion, and then bringing up his past, only makes YOU look and sound like the DUMBA$$!!   Although I have never had a DUI nor do I drink and drive or condone it, it makes me wonder how someone like YOU thinks that YOU are soooo perfect that you can sit here and criticize others?!?!?

Barkley is a pub hound who is long past being relavent. He is also a fat criminal slob. He should just go away.
