Charles Barkley rants about LeBron

Charles Barkley on 106.7 The Fan in Washington DC, about LeBron James: “If you’re successful, a lot of people aren’t going to like you. That’s just the way it is. I always used to use this analogy: Everybody hates the homecoming queen because she’s pretty. All the ugly girls hate the homecoming queen. And all the dumb kids hate the smart kids. That’s just the way it is. LeBron James, first of all he has to take some responsibility [for] the way he did the stuff last year leaving Cleveland, the decision, coming on stage talking about not five, not six, seven championships. So he deserves some blame, but like I say, he’s a great kid, he’s a great, great player. … If you look at his résumé right now, the only thing he’s missing is a championship, and he’s gonna get that done [Thursday]. And no telling how many championships they’re going to win. … I wish he had stayed in Cleveland, because those fans in Cleveland, man, they’re fantastic. They don’t even have real fans here in Miami, they’re front-runners.“

This really pains me to say this, because I generally dislike Barkley the way I dislike diarrhea and the smell of rotting eggs, but I agree with him. For the most part, other then his basketball persona he seems like a good enough dude. He brought most of the hate on himself, and he knows that now. And he really is a great player despite my disdain for his style and media antics as they relate to Bball.

I agree alh, but I feel like the pressure is still there after talking about 7 or 8 championships. he has to at least win multiple to feel like he made good on what he said ya know? Thats the way i look at it at least. if they hadnt said that then i think it would be a different story, but when you say you are going to do something, and you devote an ESPN orchestrated circus to televise it, it adds a lot of pressure to make good.
