Charles Barkley Attacks Rich Paul, Anthony Davis, LeBron James Group For ‘Bullying’ League

Charles “Chuck” Barkley has come out with an attack against Rick Paul, Anthony Davis and LeBron James’ Group for ‘Bullying’ the league. It has been very clear that point guard Ben Simmons would very much like to get out of Philadelphia.

Simmons is signed with the group Klutch Sports. This just so happens to be the same company that represents Los Angeles Lakers players LeBron James and Anthony Davis. But one person apparently thinks that this group is out of control. Charles Barkey is that person.

Here is the video that is in question. It seems like Barkley is still back in the days of old. But times have changed and players no longer act the same way they did when Chuck was in the league. This has come ever apparent in the constantly changing world that is NBA basketball.

“I don’t believe that,” said Barkley. “You know how that group works. They try to trade their players to where they want to. They do it the way they want to. Anthony Davis – they had better deals from Boston for Anthony Davis, and I think maybe even New York, and they’re like, ‘No, he’s gonna go to L.A. and play with LeBron. He’s not gonna play.’ They just bully the league. At some point, a team or the league got to stand up to, ‘Wait a minute. I paid your guy. You can’t bully me to trade him and me taking some trash back.’ So I’m hoping somebody in the Sixers organization got some stones.”

Barkley, at one point in his career, was the Sixers’ star player in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But he also requested a trade out of the city of brotherly love as he said it was a weak team. He eventually landed in Phoenix.

Barley is far from the first to question Klutch Sports for what they are doing in the NBA. But the fact remains – players, especially superstars, have been demanding trades for decades and in many different cities.
