Carmelo Fires Back at Charles Barkley for Questioning His Leadership

Carmelo Anthony is the latest athlete to have a problem with Charles Barkley’s critique’s, this time firing back after the TNT analyst questioned his leadership, per the New York Daily News.

“I don’t know how to be a better leader than what I’m doing. I don’t know what that mean,” Anthony said. “A lot of people interpret that different ways. I don’t know what to say about that.”

Barkley ripped Anthony during Thursday’s telecast of the Knicks-Kings game, saying Carmelo needs to be a better leader. Anthony, shockingly, says he’s never met Barkley.

“I wouldn’t even feel right cursing my teammates out here on the bench, on the court. That’s not who I am. Me and my teammates we have conversations, we have players-only meetings. I speak up and I’m heard,” Anthony said. “But the problem is somebody always trying to compare you to the next person, to the next man, and that’s what kinds of irks me and gets on my nerves. How can you tell somebody that they’re not, you know. You’re not around me. I’ve never even met you before. So you know nothing about me other than what you’re seeing out there on the basketball court, the couple minutes of the games you actually watch. So for somebody to tell me I need to be a better leader, I mean it’s …”

I’m just still shocked the two men have never met. Anthony is unlikely to ever get the benifit of the doubt when it comes to his leadership, but Barkley may want to ask some in the Knicks locker room before making a point blanket statement like that.
