LeBron James says that race has played a role in the massive backlash he has received since joining the Miami Heat over the summer.
Charles Barkley disagrees. The former NBA star spoke with WIP in Philadelphia and called out LeBron for his comments on race.
Barkley repeatedly referred to the James saga as a bad movie and said the criticism he has heard have nothing to do with race.
"The only criticism I've heard about LeBron and it was my biggest criticism, that decision thing was just stupid. It was stupid," Barkley said. "The second thing when they all came out there dancing around on stage, that was silly. That's the only thing I've heard LeBron get criticized about. That has nothing to do with race."
