Mike Wise: Charles Barkley Praises LeBron, Reminisces Over Dream Team
One of the NBA’s 50 greatest players believes Lebron James will be on of the 10 greatest players of all-time by the end of his career.
Charles Barkley joined the Mike Wise show to discuss the NBA finals, and the recent Dream Team documentary that detailed the 1992 USA Men’s Olympic team
Sir Charles praised LeBron James’ play as of late and how he is now taking the reign sof his team.
“Early in the season I thought (James) deferred too much, and he just has a different mindset now as far as being aggressive and realized he has to be the dominate player every night,” said Barkley.
Barkley has already crowned the Miami Heat as the NBA champions, as he thinks they will finish off the Oklahoma City Thunder in game 5 of the series.
“(Oklahoma City) has some flaws, they are a jump shooting team, you can’t out perimeter Miami,” Barkley said. “When they lost last year was because Dirk and Tyson Chandler just beat them up down low.”
Barkley concluded the interview by answering a question about the greatest team ever assembled, the 1992 Dream Team and the recent documentary that came out on NBA TV.
“It brought back great memories,” said Barkley. “That was a special time, the cool thing about it was that we made basketball international.”
Charles finally added that the Olympics is the greatest sporting event in the world and that it was awesome for him to represent his country.
