Charles & Cuban Feuding Bloggie Style

When asked whether he knew what "blog" means, Charles Barkley answered:
"No, but I know it's got something to do with the internet. You know, I don't use internet. Anybody who can sit around and thumb a keyboard all day just has no life."
Lol! Well, there it goes, fella's. Ya'll are lifeless; straight out of Sir Charles' mouth :P

That came after Dallas Mavericks' owner, Mark Cuban, attacked him and Kenny Smith on his blog for criticizing the Mavericks for being "a bunch of cupcakes" on defense even after they beat Phoenix on NBA's opening night. Mark said:
"The only downer of the night was listening to the idiots on TNT after the game... They haven't gotten any better... There is a reason why Kenny and Charles haven't gotten head coaching jobs... Charles has earned the right to be the comedian who has some insights... Kenny wants to coach, but won't do the work, so never will be more than a sidekick"
Then Charles and Kenny responded, and Cuban fired back again.

I'm not a fan of Dallas' up-tempo-soft-defense style. At the same time, I admire Cuban's untypical persona of an NBA owner. I admire his enthusiasm for the game and his no spin talks, but he just gets so blinded when it comes to his cupcake Mavericks. C'mon Mark! You even traded Michael Finley, the only player to bring toughness to the team.

Agree with them or not, I thought Charles and Kenny's responce was mature and reasonable. Mark's taking it way too personal. He even lashed out at poor Reggie Miller. I'm sure his remarks will fire up the cow bells in his arena, but look forward to the boos his team will get on the road.

Anyway, his blog is interesting. I'm amazed how such people manage to find the time to blog.

No need for amazement, dear friend. The fellow, obviously,
"has no life". Pun intended.

Too bad I missed it! I could picture Sir Charles saying all these comments!
