People Are Dragging Charles Barkley to Hell After LeBron James's Epic Clapback

One person even Photoshopped Chuck into the King's infamous Finals block.

Published January 31, 2017

LeBron James had enough of Charles Barkley's criticism. That could explain why the three-time NBA champion clapped back at Chuck in such an epic fashion Monday night, letting the Hall of Famer know that he's a "hater" and isn't "credible."

"He's a hater," James told ESPN about Sir Charles following his Cleveland Cavaliers' 104-97 loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night. "What makes what he says credible? Because he's on TV?"

James added: "I'm not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that. 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."

This all stems from Barkley criticizing LeBron for imploring the Cavs to bolster their roster.

Good grief! And people jumped on social media to get behind LeBron's epic clapback.

Although TNT's "Inside the NBA" tried to make light of the situation, tweeting a pic of its analyst Barkley looking carefree, it didn't stop the roasting of Chuck from continuing.
