Charles Barkley it’s a well-known NBA analyst. He was one of the best players in the league back in the 90’s. He thinks the Miami Heat have “excellent players,” but when it comes to the players getting frustrated about people taking shots at them and pointing out deficiencies in their game, he calls them “a whiny bunch.” Basketball scores.

“LeBron was mad at me for a while,” Barkley said. “I like LeBron. I think LeBron is the best basketball player in the world right now.”

Barkley, who admires James and his teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, also had a problem with the festival the Heat threw down after all three decided to team up in Miami last summer. The celebration included James talking about winning as many as seven titles and making such a ridiculous carnival before even playing a game.

As the season went on, the Heat were mocked and booed in rival stadiums as fans may have felt this trio displayed a sense of strong arrogance and seemed to celebrate success even before the season began. Basketball odds.

“They say we don’t like the Miami Heat. First of all, that’s not true at all,” Barkley said. “Those guys are actually a whiny bunch.”

Barkley expressed that if LeBron had just said, ‘Hey, you know what, I want to win more, I’m going to Miami’ then nobody would have disliked that. Barkley also admits that he dissed the celebration that went on and said it was kind of silly the way they handled it. Sir Charles doesn’t like the arrogance in which they came out on stage and said they were going to win seven championships.

“Those are the two things that annoyed people, but nobody dislikes Dwyane and LeBron and Chris Bosh. All three are good guys and terrific players,” concluded Barkley. Basketball spreads.

We will see if the Heat’s anticipated celebration repeats in June.
