LeBron on Barkley Calling Him Whiny: ‘That Makes No Sense In The World’
This past week, after losing 5 of 7 games, LeBron James took to the media to question the state of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster and demand that he needs another play-maker, most notably a back-up PG.
TNT’s Charles Barkley proceeded to call LeBron ‘whiny’ and questioned why LeBron didn’t just want to compete and work with what he has now.
After Saturday’s win over the Brooklyn Nets, LeBron responded to those comments:
“He has to do that,” James said, as relayed by ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “I mean, it’s good for the ratings. That makes no sense in the world. Ever since I picked up a basketball at age nine I’ve competed every single time, so you can never question that about me.
“But that’s Charles. He’s the guy who has to sit on a panel and says stuff like that, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. That means absolutely nothing. I wasn’t even watching last night.”
