BREAKING NEWS – Los Angeles, California – NBA Hall of Famer and TV analyst Charles Barkley dove into the political realm to make a point.

While discussing the missed call against LeBron James at the end of the Los Angeles Lakers- Boston Celtics game, Barkley came to the defense of the referees.

“I’m sitting here watching that game the other night, and then I see all these other idiots and fools and jack—– on television complaining,” Barkley said. “Like, man, you act like that’s the first time a ref missed a call.

LeBron responded to Barkley in a tweet. “They missed the call, and for the first time in my career, it appears that my team will not make the playoffs! I am demanding an investigation to determine if Michael Jordan is somehow behind this!”
