LeBron James is one of the most highly criticized athletes of our era and he has remained relatively quiet in terms of clapping back at his highly vocal detractors. That has come to an end as James told ESPN he is tired of Charles Barkley.
“I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that,” James told ESPN. “I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model.’ I never showed up to All-Star Weekend on Sunday because I was in Vegas all weekend partying.
“All I’ve done for my entire career is represent the NBA the right way. Fourteen years, never got in trouble. Respected the game. Print that.”
Heavy is the had that wears the crown and Bron is sick of catching everyone’s jabs and turning the other cheek. What do you guys think about the amount of criticism pro athletes face with the expectation to not respond?
