Barkley On DNL: LeBron James' National Nightmare and the Future of the Sixers

Barkley On DNL: LeBron James' National Nightmare and the Future of the Sixers

The Round Mound of Rebound was in Philadelphia on Monday making the rounds at Comcast SportsNet. From the LBJ fiasco which he dubbed a "national nightmare" to the bright future the Sixers may have with Evan Turner and Jrue Holiday, Chuck was talking all things hoops. [videos below]

When asked about the current Sixers team and the addition of Evan Turner, Charles had this to say, "I like Evan Turner. I like Doug Collins. I think Doug is gonna do a good job. They gotta figure out what style they're going to play. All good teams have a style. You know, I've been very disappointed in Andre Iguodala because he hasn't gotten better. Nobody can say in the last two or three years that he's gotten better. He's very talented but I thought by now he'd be an All-Star-caliber player. I like the Holiday kid. They're just young,"

We'll have much more on Charles' time in the CSN newsroom tomorrow.
