On the recent podcast of San Jose Mercury News columnist Marcus Thompson II, the Golden State Warriors forward expressed his support for the Cleveland Cavaliers star after he went off on the NBA analyst.
"I’m all for destroying Barkley," Green said. “You know, Barkley talk a lot. A whole lot for a guy who has not won a championship. … I think Shaq should talk about the champions. Kenny (Smith) should talk about the champions. Ernie (Johnson) can talk about the champions. When it comes time to speak about someone who has a championship, Barkley should be muted.
"You know how on … “Around the Horn” where they just ice somebody out on the screen? They should be able to do that with Barkley any time the name of a champion come up."
James responded to Barkley's recent comments on TNT saying James was "whiny" among other things in reference to the team's roster, calling Barkley a "hater" before criticizing his behavior during his Hall of Fame career.
"All I've done for my entire career is represent the NBA the right way," James said. "Fourteen years, never got in trouble. Respected the game. Print that."
