Barkley shares his thoughts on James and Wade

Published on September 21, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

Charles Barkley is the best analyst out there. He tells it the way it is; he’s not afraid to call out the star players. He won’t let his relationships affect his thoughts. He will call out anyone, which some analyst won’t do.

Recently Barkley was on Dan LeBatard’s new ESPN2 show, Highly Questionable (this show is awful). Their LeBatard asked Barkley his thoughts on Dwayne Wade and LeBron James. This is what Barkley had to say.

On the advice he’d give to King James right now: “Stop taking himself so seriously. He’s a great, great player. He’s a really good dude. I would ask him to go and talk to Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan…those guys who are really great like him. Every person who’s a star or who’s famous or rich or whatever, should always go talk to an older person who has been in that situation.”

On how his relationship with Wade has changed: “Dwyane has become like the Miami group, a little whiny. You know, Dwyane’s a great guy. LeBron’s a great guy. They’re both great players. I’ve never criticized them as a basketball team. I did criticize them for that decision when they came around on stage, dancing like idiots, talking about how they were going to win five or six championships. And he’s a little sensitive about that, but I know I’m 100 percent right to criticize that stuff.”

I agree with this they are great players, but they both whine and flop around too much. I can’t stand players that whine; just play the game. They get ton of more calls than the average player just because they are stars. Wade has a ring, but James doesn’t; he needs to focus on his game not all the other stuff around him. I hope these guys just go out and play whenever the lockout ends, and who knows maybe they will win the title. No mocking Dirk’s illness just play the game please.
