Charles Barkley: ‘The Lakers are such wussies’

One of the greatest NBA players of all time with the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, and Houston Rockets, Charles Barkley, took a moment to react to the Los Angeles Lakers putting blame on point guard Russell Westbrook and head coach Frank Vogel for recent struggles: “The Lakers are such wussies, and I only say wussies cuz I can’t say the word I want to say. The way they have tried to throw Russell Westbrook and Frank Vogel under the bus is really pissing me off.” – via TalkBasket

But for NBA legend Charles Barkley, it’s clear that the Lakers’ main problem is the front office. Barkley went into a lengthy monologue on Inside the NBA about the lack of accountability on the part of the Lakers’ decision-makers (via NBA on TNT). “The way they are trying to throw Russell Westbrook and Frank Vogel under the bus is really pissing me off. I’m not gonna sit around like all these clowns on other networks who got their head up the Lakers booties. Now, they’re blaming Frank Vogel and Russell Westbrook. The people up top who put that trash together are running and hiding like cowards, saying ‘Oh it’s Frank, it’s Russ.’ You put all them old geezers out there. Listen, the best guy other than LeBron in the last month has been who? Stanley Johnson. For y’all to be bringing a guy who was on the street and he becomes your second best player, whoever running that trash out there getting away with. It’s ridiculous man.” – via Paolo Mariano @ Clutch Points
