Barkley, who was a member of the ‘Dream Team’ of the 1992 Olympics and member of Hall of Famedid not stop there and pointed out that this sweep in the series against Nuggets It will be a stain that will haunt the ‘king’ James forever.
Barkley went all-out against LeBron
“This sweep will taint LeBron James’ career forever and will be the ghost that haunts him his entire career. You have had a season in which you have become the top scorer of all time and now they paint your face like that in a Conference Finals ”continued the now commentator.
“This is the trigger to affirm that he cannot be considered the best player in history. The GOAT cannot have a negative record in the Finals, much less have sweeps in the Conference Finals. He is one of the best in history, but he may not be the best.”sentenced charles barkley.
