Where in your mind does LeBron end up? And why not Philly?
Barkley: “Well, he’s not coming to Philly because him, Simmons and Embiid don’t go together. But listen, number one, I don’t know and I don’t care. I’m not gonna let [LeBron] hijack like all these idiots on ESPN. They’re going to talk about it nonstop every single day.
“LeBron’s a great, great player. He’s a great, great man. I hope he stays in Cleveland. But I’m not going to let this dude hijack my life because I don’t care, number one. But the whole sports world, we sit around like idiots and worry about where this dude is going every day.”
I just want to know if he’s coming to the Sixers.
Barkley: “He’s not coming to the Sixers because he needs the ball, Simmons needs the ball and Embiid needs the ball. You can’t have a guy that’s going to dominate the ball. That’s going to make Simmons—who’s going to be a stud, I think—he’d be useless. And same thing with Joel Embiid.”
