Charles Barkley - LeBron's Actions A 'Punk Move'

By now you have seen the infamous tweet from James regarding the 'hit-list' he is keeping in his head. If not, here is what it said -

"Don't think for one min that I haven't been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone."


By the sounds of it, Barkley wants to be first on the list -

"I heard about LeBron's little tweet today that he's remembering everybody who said anything bad about him," Barkley said. "And he said 'everybody.' Well, I want him to make sure that he puts my name on that [list]."

When asked about LeBron's 1-hour special, 'The Decision', Barkley let the 'King' have it,

"I thought that his little one-hour special was a punk move. I thought them dancing around on the stage was a punk move, and I thought he should've stayed in Cleveland. Him joining Dwyane Wade's team was very disappointing to me."

Has there ever been a bigger disconnect in sports than the one that seems to exist in the NBA between today's players and the greats from the not-so-distant-past?
