LeBron James tells Charles Barkley to "shut up", T.I. releases a short film, Terrell Owens tried to get a contract with the Clippers, and Frank Ocean covers Radiohead.

LeBron James defended Dwyane Wade yesterday, telling Charles Barley to “shut up.” Barkley made comments on TNT that Wade has lost some explosiveness and athletic ability. Wade shot a career-high 11 of 13 last night against the Hawks. 

What's interesting is James speaking out. I mean, we know Wade can just hit Barkley on the T-Mobile My Circle, right? Why did he feel the need to even say anything? The performance said enough, and for all the criticism LeBron and Wade have taken over last two years, this seems like a minor one to hit back at.
