This is the perfect follow-up to the great special “Sir Charles at 50.”

Derrick Rose’s brother was venting to ESPN Chicago about the Bulls organization not doing enough and putting “anything around” his famous brother.

What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami. What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs? Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It’s up to the organization to make them better. It’s frustrating to see my brother play his heart and soul out for the team and them not put anything around him

These comments from the Rose’s brother really pissed off Barkley who went off on Inside The NBA

His brother need to shut the hell up, too, number one. Listen man, I’m gonna make one of the rules when I’m king of the world, which is never gonna happen. Hey man, we don’t care about your mom, your dad, your bother, your sisters, so stop tweetin’. As Herm Edwards would say, ‘don’t push sin.’ Nobody cares what you think. If a reporter calls you, he wants you to say something bad about somebody else so don’t be a damn idiot. Stop tweetin’ about coaches and players and stuff. Let the famous person be famous. You just shut the hell up.

I kind of like the idea of Barkley being “King of the world.”  Well, maybe not King but I do wish he would eventually run for Mayor…whether it’s Leeds or some other place most of us have never been to.
