Charles Barkley is happy. Happy for the Cavs, happy for LeBron, happy for the NBA and is now a “LeBron James fan for life.” I’ll repeat, he’s now a “LeBron James fan for life.”
(all of the above was said just in case you can’t understand the audio in the video).
He’s happy because LeBron is back in Cleveland and back in May, Barkley spoke with ESPN’s SVP & Russillo and said he was hoping that LeBron would return to Cleveland.
“I’ve always thought he was going to go back to Cleveland,” Barkley said. “Nobody dislikes LeBron. I think LeBron made a huge mistake with that ‘Decision’ crap. He’s come back and since admitted that. That’s the only thing people hold against LeBron.
“He’s a great player, a great person. I hope he goes back to Cleveland. Those fans in Miami are not real fans, those fans in Cleveland are real fans. I’ve always hoped he would go back to Cleveland. That would be a great way to finish his career.”
