Tuesday Blogdome: [Sports Radio Interviews] Charles Barkley on WIP, Philadelphia: “Listen, LeBron is a really good dude who has not made a bunch of very good of statements in the last year. The thing that has really bothered me about this team is they would never admit they made any mistakes. Dwyane [Wade] is a great guy and LeBron [James] is a great guy, but they actually don’t think they’ve done anything wrong. That’s what makes me laugh about this whole scenario.

“These owners are batting down the hatches and they are going for it. I’m going to be honest with you; I would be surprised if we played basketball next year. I think this is just me now. I don’t have no inside info. I think what’s going to happen is once we start missing games and it starts creeping. I think they are going to say ‘You know what let’s don’t play this year.’ That’s just my personal opinion because I think last time [1999] it was so negative when we played 40-50 games.”

    As usual, Sir Charles is right.

    I’m not even going to be following the NBA lockout. That’s how confident I am they won’t get a deal done.

    good so maybe we wouldnt have to listen to the worst trio of commentators on TNT every Thursday night.

    Kenny – I jumped on Hakeems team and won 2 rings & now I have the right to critique NBA all-stars who were way better then me – Smith

    Charles – (anything you want) – Barkley

    Chris – I TRIED TO MOCK RON ARTEST BEING FROM THE ‘HOOD ONLY TO WATCH HIM HIT THE GAME WINNING 3-POINTER GAME 7 vs BOSTON NBA FINALS – Webber

    kenny & charles wanted to jump in with Miami fans – dont do that, ya’ll might come up M.I.A. in M.I.A.
