And Another Thing



I love Charles Barkley. He's more fun than 10 clowns in a Volkswagen.

Sometimes, though, he just says dumb stuff.

Really, Sir Charles? LeBron James is a "punk" for taking a pay cut to leave Cleveland and play with his buddies in Miami?

Don't recall you calling yourself a punk for doing the exact same thing, bailing on the 76ers to go play for the Suns in Phoenix. True, you didn't co-opt ESPN to announce it national TV, but other than that, how was what LeBron did any different than what any free agent with clout (including Your Sirness) eventually does in every major sport?

And somehow I don't think you went to Phoenix for less money. So for you, Sir-endipity, it actually was about the money.

And now you rip LeBron?

Now there's the real punk move.
