Kevin Durant's Reaction To Charles Barkley Gets Global
Charles Barkley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, never holds back. As a result, he has emerged as one of the most well-liked basketball commentators.
Barkley once more voiced his opinion while presenting on ESPN First Take on Monday, this time regarding Kevin Durant of the Phoenix Suns.
Barkley was questioned by ESPN's Stephen A. Smith about the contrast between Durant joining Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in Golden State and LeBron James joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. Both occurred throughout free agency.
"First of all, there's no difference," Barkley said. "Kevin gets mad at me when I point this out but if you go back and look at LeBron, who I really admire and respect.
He said this: "I had to win a championship without D-Wade to get old heads' respect.' Kobe Bryant says, 'I have to win a championship without Shaq to get these old heads off my back. I hold Kevin Durant to the same criteria."
