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."

Charles Barkley rips Miami's Big 3

Who really gives a crap.  The NBA isn't really basketball anyway.  It's sad, but really very similar to the WWE.  That's exactly what the introduction was from.  Pat Rilley has sold his basketball soul.  All I really know is that if you are not a Heat fan, you will be rooting against them now.  No one but their fans will want to see them win.  Hell, these moves will even get me to root for Kobe.

Hey Pot...This is Kettle,

Is this from the same Charles Barkley that joined the Houston Rockets at the end of his career trying to win a ring?  Did he call up Karl Malone and say you can't join the Lakers.  You should stay with the Jazz.

You can fault Lebron for the one hour special.  That was narcissism at it's best (unless your name is Farvre.)  But joining with Wade & Bosh wasn't anything more than Barkley or Malone...he was just younger when he did it.

Charles...I think your DUIs were punk could have killed someone.  Look in the mirror before you criticize others.  Lord knows your fat ass and mouth have gotten you in too plenty of trouble.  My guess if you had the chance you would have done the same thing in order to win a ring.  You are such a dumba$$!!!!
