Dwyane Wade might not be the same animal that he was 4 years ago when he was the NBA scoring leader, but has he declined that much? Ringless Sir Charles Barkley mouthed off to the Palm Beach Post and said this about Dwyane Wade’s talent decline:
“The toughest thing for Dwyane Wade is understanding that he’s starting to lose his (natural) talent and now he has to learn how to play below the basket… That’s the toughest thing when you’re a great player or very athletic, when you can’t jump over a building anymore, you have to learn how to play.”
Loyal teammate, LeBron James didn’t take too kindly to the criticism of Dwyane Wade after Dwyane Wade explodes for 26 pts off of 84.6% shooting during the Atlanta Hawks game on Monday.
“It Means Charles Barkley needs to shut up,” James said. “I mean, the man’s shooting 80 percent from the floor in the last couple games. Come on, man. That’s like crazy, right?”
