Charles Barkley doesn’t hold back.

When asked about the Golden State Warriors’ 4-2 series win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, Sir Charles responded as only he could—by taking a jab at LeBron James and his new movie, Trainwreck.

Here’s what Barkley told CSN Bay Area’s Jim Kozimor:

LeBron flat-out ran out of gas. But you put two more All-Stars on that team, the Warriors still might have won, but I would have picked the Cavs if everyone was healthy. ...

LeBron should call this Trainwreck 2 because the Finals was Trainwreck 1.

James did all he could, averaging 35.8 points, 13.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists on a seriously undermanned team.

Calling the series Trainwreck 1 might be a bit harsh. It felt more like LBJ was playing with a bunch of Looney Tunes against the Monstars.
