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.

Barkley and Wade not getting along right now

I cant believe I just read something else Barkley said. I promised myself I wouldnt do that.  Charles are you playing for a Championship? Have even won one? The guy acts like he just finished playing yesterday. I remember your big ass crying and whinning when David Robinson blocked your idea of a dunk in your face in San Antonio, you were so embarrased you winned at the official looking for a foul that never happend. It was sad. You were with the Rockets and you tought that was going to bring you a ring. Then a real Champion put the ball back in your grill. You probably still lose sleep over it, and it helps to call Dwayne Wade names. Chuck retire from speaking and go work on that god-awful golf swing of yours, on second though retire from that too.

Goatsense, I guess you didn't read this post:
I guess you are right since he did not actually say the word "dynasty."

If you don't have a problem with the Heat then move on and move out, that message wasn't for you.

And I don't have an issue at all with the Heat.  I think Miami will win it all in a Heat-Mavericks rematch.

Have you ever seen them speak?  Then that should answer your question.

Show me one person on this thread who is calling the Heat a Dynasty?  Quit trying to stir things up with your weak attempt at trolling.

Everyone keeps talking about how the Heat has this dynasty.  How many players from the Celtics made the All-star team?  Could it be the same as Miami or even more?  As for the Lakers, Bynum and Odom could have easily been selected as well.  Give Gasol and Bryant the supporting staff that Wade and Lebron has and see how many rings they win.  I bet my pay check that any two out of the big four in Boston along with the Heats supporting cast would not  win anything either.  To all the Heat haters out there, give them credit for what they are doing and hope your team can do the same.  Quick question? How many rings does Barkley have?

Wade continued on and said, "When I was a kid, they called me whiny all the time because I cried a lot."

When he was a kid?  Exactly when did Dwyane Wade quit whining and crying?  He thinks he gets fouled every time he takes a shot, and if I had a dollar every time he went over to the referees and complained about them not making a call, every NBA season would pay for my groceries for a whole year.  All Charles Barkley was doing was pointing out an obvious truth:  Dwyane Wade is a whiner.

Ditto, by the way anyone with Noha and Boozer on their team has no business calling anyone a cry baby.
