The Los Angeles Lakers are getting an ear full from former NBA star Charles Barkley.
His analysis of the Lakers management isn’t good, as he unloaded on them.
So what is the former NBA star saying about the Lakers management that’s so bad?
Barkley Isn’t Happy With Players That The Lakers Put Around LeBron James
Barkley thinks the Los Angeles Lakers management is an “embarrassment” for not putting the right players around LeBron James.
"What they're putting around LeBron is an embarrassment…Somebody is not doing their job in LA. Period."

While he rants about the two years of poor management of the Lakers roster.
Earlier this year, rumors had the Lakers getting some mega stars to help James.
However, those players never came to Los Angeles, leaving James with Russell Westbrook.
While the Lakers dropped their first two games of the NBA season that just kicked off, it might be too early to trash management.
But that didn’t stop Barkley, who’s gone after James’ teammates already this year.
Barkley Says It’s Time Move Westbrook From L.A.
One teammate that Charles Barkley was critical of was Russell Westbrook.
He went on a rant about how Westbrook needs out of L.A., and how the Lakers have stolen the joy of playing from him.

Another thing he also adds is how the Lakers suck, which adds to his comments of how he’s not happy with the Lakers’ roster.
Barkley knows what it’s like to be a player in the NBA, which is why he’s being so vocal about James’ situation.
However, he’s helpless to change the situation in Los Angeles for James.
