LeBron James: Reacted at Charles Barkley's comments
The famous American professional basketball player LeBron James, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, a professional basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio, is in a very bad mood these days. He has reacted strongly to the comments of Charles Barkley who said that James is not showing respect for Cleveland fans and his teammates.
More news on LeBron James has been inferred from multiple sources. On Friday night before the starting of Cavaliers' game against Golden State, LeBron James said, "He's stupid. That's all I've got to say about that."
Charles Barkley has made the comments on TNT's NBA studio show and Dan Patrick's radio show.
"If I was LeBron James, I would shut the hell up," "I'm a big LeBron fan. He's a stud. You gotta give him his props. I'm getting so annoyed he's talking about what he's going to do in two years. I think it's disrespectful to the game. I think it's disrespectful to the Cavaliers," added Barkley while giving interview on Patrick's show.
LeBron James, who remained under contract for two more seasons, was showered with questions about his future while the Cavaliers visited New York to play the Knicks on Tuesday night.
The Cavaliers also are thinking of giving him offer for an extension as early as July 1, 2009. Speculation is on that LeBron James will ultimately end up in one of the NBA's larger markets and the Knicks have cleared salary-cap space in anticipation of the 2010 free-agent class.
"I think July 1, 2010, is a very big day." "It's probably going to be one of the biggest days in free-agent history in the NBA. So a lot of teams are gearing up to try to prepare themselves to be able to put themselves in position to get one of the big free-agent market guys”, added James LeBron.
