Our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, in what was without a doubt his greatest speech said it best when he said: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.”
In case you haven’t kept up, let me re-cap. TNT studio analyst, Charles Barkley has long been a Lebron James detractor; from calling his decision to leave Cleveland a “Punk move” to saying Lebron doesn’t make his top seven players of all time to calling his comments about trades the cavaliers made “Inappropriate” and “Whiny”. Fact is, seems like Barkley’s always up in Bron’s Kool-Aid. Well, Lebron finally had enough and defended himself by going on record saying about Chuck:
“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.”
You would think that kind of comeback might slow you down a little, right? But if we know anything about Chuck, we know he sorta likes rolling in the mud and he surely is missing two critical parts of his brain. The part that causes one to be embarrassed and the part that says “shut up! You’ve already said too much”. So our advice for Bron Bron woud be, just play man. You got something Charles will never have and it rhymes with “things”.
