"I like that 'Bron called him out."
After Cleveland's loss to the Mavericks last night, LeBron James went off on Charles Barkley who had called him "whiny" for the way he has criticized the Cavs organization lately.
In short, LeBron told reporters: "Screw Charles Barkley. There's a new sheriff in town."
Unsurprisingly, LeBron's buddy Dwyane Wade applauded him for his comments today saying "Thank God he finally said something," and added that Barkley should watch what he says especially since he has a history and people can google that history.
"We all have flaws. But when your flaws are a little bit more, you should shut up."

“Thank god he finally said something,” Wade said Tuesday, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “LeBron, a lot of guys take a lot of shots at him — for whatever reason. He just has kept his mouth closed and continued to focus on what he needs to. But it’s about time he said something, man. Guys ride him, especially ex-players. When you have a history, when you can go and Google your history, you better be a little careful with what you say.
“Sometimes, when guys get a microphone in front of their face, they just talk and talk and talk and forget about their history. We all make that mistake, but especially that guy on TV. He acting like he just walks on water. And I like the fact that LeBron called him out and told him about himself a little bit. Humble yourself."
“LeBron is who he is. We all have flaws. But when your flaws are a little bit more, you should shut up. I’m glad LJ finally said something and stood up for himself from that standpoint. He said there’s a new sheriff in town. So I’m excited to see what’s next.”
