Charles Barkley say LeBron James is a 'great guy,' and has apologized enough

By Matt Moore | NBA writer


Charles Barkley has been one of the most adamant critics of LeBron James after all his nonsense in 2010, nearly two years ago. But Barkley said Wednesday on the Tim Brando show that those actions weren't a reflection of who LeBron is, and that in fact, LeBron is a "great guy."

"I think he made a mistake," Barkley said. "You know he came out a lot this year and apologized for the way he left Cleveland, not telling the Cavaliers in advance, that Decision thing, where he came out 'we're not gonna win 1,2,3,4,6,7 championships" and I think that's the reason people got turned on LeBron. He's the best player in the NBA but he's also a really nice guy. That's why it caught a lot of us off-guard, because he's a great guy."
