SHREVEPORT, Louisiana - Charles Barkley, aka The Round Mound of Rebound may have done gone and stepped smack dab in it this time.
Barkley in town judging a Crayfish Eating Contest was asked what he thought about LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers and joining the Miami Heat.
Charles The Mouth, who weighs exactly as much as actress Kirstie Alley (409), said that LeBron disrespected the Cleveland Cavaliers organization, his teammates, the fans, and the fisherman of Lake Erie by leaving Cleveland and going south to Miami.
He said that in his eyes King James, as he calls himself, is nothing more than a prima donna/diva/punk. Barkley was told that those are pretty strong words to be calling a fellow NBA player as well as a fellow black bro.
Barkley shook his head and said that LeBron ain't no black bro. When asked what he is, Charles started laughing and said that LeBron is just a very dark Dominican Republican like baseball player Sammy Sosa.
LeBron was told about Barkley's remarks. He hit his fist with his hand and said that if he ever sees Charles "Fat Boy" in person he will pounce on him like a lion jumping on a helpless gazelle.
James pointed out that Barkley is so fat an Ethiopian family of 10 could survive for months simply by eating him.
He said that Charles is just a jive ass who is so fat his damn shadow weighs 30 pounds.
SIDENOTE: ESPN is trying to get Barkley and James to wrestle in a caged match with the loser feeding watermelon to the winner in front of Carnegie Hall.
