Even though their super partnership ended two and half years ago when LeBron decided to end his stay in Miami and return home to Cleveland, LeBron’s former partner in crime, Dwyane Wade, has come to his aid again, this time in support of his explosive comments about Charles Barkley.
As we all know by now, Barkley called out LeBron’s recent comments about the Cavaliers roster as “whiny and inappropriate” while deriding LeBron’s unwillingness to compete, as he termed it on TNT a few days ago.
LeBron decided to fire back at Barkley on Monday with a series of explosive comments about Barkley’s behavior.
Dwyane Wade shared his delight and support of LeBron’s comments about Barkley, which isn’t a surprise considering Barkley’s consistent criticism of Wade as well Barkley and Wade Spat 2011.
K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune shared Wade comments on the situation on his Twitter page:

It has to be noted that Barkley’s comments are partially motivated by creating interest on Inside the NBA and to present a “hot take” in the most entertaining way possible, but it is completely fair for LeBron to defend himself and address many of the issues that Barkley has had in his career as well, and that is what Wade is in support of.
It will be interesting to see how Barkley’s responds to all of this, he has never been one to shy away from a verbal confrontation.
