Feel free to boo Charles Barkley as early and often as you like when the Round Mound of Rebound is in Cleveland this week. He doesn’t mind. Sure, the TNT analyst has said some unflattering things about the city and the Cavaliers in recent months, but there’s also something he thinks the people in his favorite “Mistake by the Lake” need to know. “I’m just joking around,” Barkley said Wednesday. That time back in March, when Barkley called Cleveland a “dreary-ass city” and reiter ated the old un flattering nick name for the town along the Lake Erie shore? It was all in good fun and not because of any lingering bad feelings. “The fans should have a sense of humor,” said Barkley, who was loudly booed when he was shown on the jumbo screen at The Q while setting up for TNT’s halftime show. “They ought to know it’s just TV and we’re just joking around. I don’t have a favorite team or a favorite player. I really don’t care either way.” — Cleveland Plain Dealer
