The Decision

leave a comment »

Charles Barkley, my all-time favorite basketball player, checked in on Lebron James’ s free-agency decision.   He said what I was thinking, specifically that Lebron can go play for whomever he wants, but the manner he handled his decision was “stupid.”

I watched the first 20  minutes or so of his show before I turned it off in favor of Time Bandits.  It was as awful as I suspected.  To his credit, Lebron didn’t come off as a complete ego-maniac.  That said, I think he should have notified Cleveland of his decision prior to the telecast.  And, by-the-way, Mr. James, it’s complete bullshit that your move to Miami wasn’t planned.  That’s what you wanted all along, so don’t go spewing this nonsense that you never thought it was possible.  What do you think would happen when it came to the attention of NBA executives that you wanted to be on a team with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh?  It’s the result you wanted and you got it.  Good luck — we’ll see what happens with Miami next year.  Hopefully depth won’t be an issue, or the lack of a traditional center…Though Shaq is available.
