The feud between Charles Barkley and LeBron James has turned into one of the biggest stories in the NBA right now. Quite a few people have weighed in on the back-and-forth banter between the two basketball legends, including Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem.

The “Barkley-James” story has gained momentum over the past few days. As most know by now, The King went in on Barkley with a fervor we rarely see, going after him in a personal way.

Recently J.R. Smith, who is still recovering from thumb surgery, took some time to answer questions from fans on his personal Twitter account, and one tweet in particular let the world know what he thought of Barkley’s recent criticism.

He was/will never on his level as a player or person an I think it eats him up.”

Clearly, “Swish,” as Smith is affectionately known amongst Cavs fans, dropped the mic with his reply.
