Barkley and Wade not getting along right now

By all appearances, Dwyane Wade and Charles Barkley are friends. I say that mainly because they do commercials together, so I may be wrong, but I doubt it.

Anyway, after the Heat's big Game 2 win, evidently Barkley and Wade had a moment of not getting along. Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo! Sports tweeted that Wade told Barkley, "I'm not talking to you right now man" and Barkley responded, "What I do this time?" Dwyer assumed they were joking, but that doesn't appear so.

Via the Miami Herald, Barkley upset Wade with some comments he made on Chicago radio this week.
TNT analyst and Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley caused a stir Tuesday when he referred to the Heat as a “whiny bunch” on a Chicago radio station. Wade shot back Wednesday, referring to Barkley’s comments as “bandwagon” opinions.

“We don’t care what people have to say about us,” Wade said. “We’re coming out to win the game. And we understand what the word bandwagon means.”

I'm actually not sure that's the totally correct use of "bandwagon" but I'll allow it because I know what you meant. Are the Heat whiny? Well, Chris Bosh is on the roster... but I can't really say. No more whiny to me than any other team. The Heat do play the "woe is us, the media hates us" card more than any other team though. Maybe that's what this was in reference to.

Wade continued on and said, "When I was a kid, they called me whiny all the time because I cried a lot. That’s fine. I’m done addressing what Charles has to say.”

Barkley, who is never shy about his opinions, probably isn't done saying things either. Fair trade I guess.

95% of the players in the NBA whine. I agree that MJ was one of the worst, but these days it's harder to find the ones that don't cry and whine like children. Rasheed Wallace has to be added to the list. I don't think, judging by his reactions, he has ever committed a foul in his entire career. Here is your modern NBA all cry baby team C - Rasheed Wallace, mentioned above PF - Karl Malone, not many 6'10" , 260 pound men need the 6'0" 185 pound point guard to be the tough guy on the team. He did. SF - Lebron James, built like Karl Malone, moves like MJ, cries and complains like a child when it's time to leave chuck e cheese. SG - Michael Jordan, greatest ever play, he changed the way refs called the games. Some complained b4, but when he whined, the refs listened. PG - Dwayne Wade, limp, fine, tweak, fine, gnash teeth, fine, fall down, fine, hobble, fine...and that's just the 1st QTR. Personally, I'll take C - Hakeem Olajawon PF - Tim Duncan SF - Kevin Durant SG - Joe Dumars PG - Magic Johnson These are 5 guys that suit up and play. They have had their moments, but I have never wanted to slap any of them and tell them to act like a man.

You're right on point! I'm a Fan of the game not team. The Bulls got reveal as well as the Mavs, neither have a true shot creator and thats what hurt them both in the 4th.

I just learned after watching old Bulls games that Scottie Pippen was just as whiny.  I also learned that I'm not the only one who thinks that MJ was whiny.  Hell, if he wasn't getting paid a half mil for the Hanes commercials he would be whining about the idiot sitting next to him on the airplane wearing his endorsed undergarments.

MJ takes the whiny cake?

40 years of BBall watching and you are still the idiot of the day with the MJ comment.  Go learn something.

Youngster - your funny gramps!  Get yourself a nice big hdtv and sit up close and watch game 3.  Game 1 wade was no where to be found.  Game 2 james had a stuffed up nose and they beat the bulls. Heats bench was good in game 2 no doubt.  Sorry for the type o didn't realize it would ruin your dinner.  I will root for the Bulls and hope it ends in 6.

What is "Bulls win the series then you will whiny" mean?  I could care less who wins.  I'm just saying after watching BBall for the past 40 years, MJ takes the "whiny cake."  I see Wade playing hard both ends of the court and I admire that.  I see a energetic playmaking Rose and I admire that.  I see a great all around player in James and a streaky player in Bosh as well as a very good Bulls bench and I admire all this.  I can't stand thrid graders who get behind the computer and tell me "just watch."  What the hell do you think I'm going to do youngster?
