Sir Charles is always keeping it real, and this time it’s about Caitlin Clark.

Speaking on the most recent edition of the “Mind the Game” podcast, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James talked about Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark and the shine that she’s brought towards the WNBA. He also chimed in on the criticism of the 22-year-old, saying that it’s “the weirdest thing in the world.” (RELATED: Caitlin Clark Hit With Technical Foul After Blasting Referee With F-Bomb)

Well, basketball legend and current analyst Charles Barkley relayed off what “The King” said, going on a rant Wednesday night during TNT’s “Inside the NBA” pregame show while looking directly into the camera. He agreed with James, and then on to take up for Clark and blast her haters.

“You women out there, y’all petty, man,” said Barkley, appearing to talk about her WNBA counterparts. “LeBron, you’re 100% right on these girls hating on Caitlin Clark. Y’all petty, girls. I expect men to be petty because we’re the most insecure group in the world. Y’all should be thanking that girl for getting y’all a– private charters, all the money and visibility she’s bringing to the WNBA.”


I was questioning whether or not Caitlin Clark could be a bust after her dismal nine-point performance, but since then, she’s gotten better (she still needs to work on the turnovers though). My point of bringing that up is because I was critical of her based off play, but some of y’all … Chuck’s right … the hate is pretty petty.

And not surprisingly, it’s coming from women! Just look at social media.

Stop it, ladies. Just stop it. You know damn well nobody cared about the WNBA before Caitlin Clark.
