NBA Playoffs 2011: Dwyane Wade Fires Back at Charles Barkley's "Whiny" Comment
NBA Playoffs 2011 features verbal jabs between two NBA greats
If Dwyane Wade has proven one thing in the NBA Playoffs it’s that he’s not willing to take anything lying down.
And that goes for comments from Charles Barkley as well.
Off the heels of Charles Barkley’s comment that he didn’t care for the Miami Heat because they were “whiny,” Wade told the Miami Sun-Sentinal he doesn’t care much what Barkley thinks.
When I was a kid they called me whiny all the time because I cried a lot. That's fine. I'm done addressing what Charles has to say. That's the way he thinks, and that's fine. He's not in our locker room. He's not going to have any bearing on what we do in the game of basketball. So that's fine. We don't care what people have to say about us. We're coming out to win the game. And we understand what the word 'bandwagon' means.
While I think Wade is right to be done addressing what any analyst says, I don’t know that this will be the last time D-Wade answers back to Sir Charles. These two have traded verbal jabs before and Wade has been walking around with a big chip on his shoulder since the free agent bonanza.
I think if Wade wins the NBA title, he’s going to have a few things to say about Charles and everyone else who was filled with Heat hate. It won’t be classy if he does, but to the victor go the spoils.
