Count Charles Barkley among the contingent that believes LeBron James should have never left the Cleveland Cavaliers in favor of South Beach and the Miami Heat.
Barkley recently sat down for an interview with Rachel Nichols on CNN and was asked whether he thought James was better off for joining the Heat in 2010. As always, Barkely was more than willing to voice his opinion.
"I thought LeBron should have stayed in Cleveland," Barkley said. "Just 'cause he got them rings now, he ain't no better. Think about the notion that, just because I didn't win a sporting event, my life is not successful. That's gotta be the stupidest thing I ever heard."
Of course, these comments are coming from a guy who never won an NBA championship himself. So it's only natural for Barkley to feel bitter toward those players who have.
Barkley was also asked if he would like to see James return to the franchise who he originally rose to stardom with.
"I think it'd be great for him to go back to Cleveland," Barkley said. "Number one, I don't think they are great fans in Miami. I thought they were great fans in Cleveland."
Needless to say, Barkley may not want to venture into Miami anytime soon.
