LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar responds back to Charles Barkley, 11-time NBA All-Star and current TNT analyst on Monday night.

LeBron James, scored 23 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in Monday’s match, which Cavaliers loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that,” he told ESPN. “I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model.’ I never showed up to All-Star Weekend on Sunday because I was in Vegas all weekend partying.”

“All I’ve done for my entire career is represent the NBA the right way. Fourteen years, never got in trouble. Respected the game. Print that.”

The Cavaliers are a the top of the Eastern Conference with a 32-15 record. They are heavy favorite to reach the NBA Finals, although they’ve struggled lately with a 4-6 mark over their last 10 games, with 2-7 odds to win the East, according to Odds Shark.

The question is do they have enough quality to beat the Western Conference champions, likely the Golden State Warriors or San Antonio Spurs.
