Nike Tried to Silence Charles Barkley From Criticizing Lebron James?

Don’t underestimate the power of Nike.

With that being said, I don’t know if they really thought they could shut Charles Barkley of all people up. It appears they tried to though.

Larry Brown Sports has the details.

“These athletes today are all wussified,” Barkley said. “I’ve been saying LeBron’s been the best player in the league for three years. And I say one thing criticizing The Decision, and I get a phone call from Nike saying why don’t I like LeBron? It’s interesting how this [expletive] works. These groups today, if you don’t say 100 percent positive about their guy or their team, they overreact.”

You would think that Barkley had said Lebron had slept with someone’s mother or something. Lebron has to be the most protected athlete in the world.

Hopefully for his sakes, he doesn’t have any Tiger Woods style skeletons in his closet because people are always looking for a crack in the armor and that is something Nike can not save him from.
