LeBron James was upset he was benched for Saturday’s game against the Clippers, and so was the NBA.

James, along with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, who were both on the mend from knee injuries, sat out for the Cavaliers. As a result, the Clippers dominated the defending champions’ supporting cast in a 108-78 win at Staples Center.
He was mad, but I just thought for him it was the right decision, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue told reporters about James. Not to go out there and try to carry the whole load by himself and playing more minutes.
When it was pointed out that his job is to analyze the best player in the NBA, Barkley just smiled. Today’s NBA superstars want to be lionized, not criticized.
Man, these guys don’t care about your ‘job’ now. You have to say everything positive about them, or they don’t like it. In my 16 years in the NBA or college basketball, I’ve never said anything personal about a player. And I’m never going to. I’m going to do my job, though.
SN also asked Barkley about pro athletes often reacting to second- or third-hand comments from fans, family and friends via social media rather than the actual comments from TV analysts/announcers. Blame that on social media, said Barkley.

Man, let me tell you something. You know I’m not a social media guy. I think social media is one of the worst things that ever happened to the world, he said. Every loser has an opinion. Every loser thinks their opinion is important. It’s one of the evils of the world. I do no social media whatsoever. Never have, never will. But hey, man, you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube now.
