Charles Barkley doesn't see the fit and doesn't think LeBron James is coming to Philly. Speaking on the topic yesterday, Charles is already growing tired of the LeBron watch. Not only does Charles Barkley not think LeBron James is coming to Philly, he's sick of talking about it.

"I'm not gonna let this dude hijack my life," Barkley said as a guest on The Mike Missanelli Show Tuesday. "The whole sports world, we sit around like idiots and worry about where this dude is going."

Barkley, though, doesn't think James' last stop will be joining forces with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

"He's not coming to the Sixers," Barkley said. "He's not coming to the Sixers because he needs the ball, Simmons needs the ball and Embiid needs the ball. That would make Simmons useless."

Any chance James would alter his game to fit in alongside the Sixers' two young studs?

"He's not going to give the ball up at this stage of his career," Barkley said. "He's not a great shooter, so you can't play him off the ball. I guarantee you [defenders] would let him shoot threes all night. Guys would love him to shoot threes. ... It would hurt Embiid and Simmons going forward."

So there you have it, LeBron isn't going to the Sixers.
