Here’s a shock: Charles Barkley was asked his opinion of Kevin Durant’s move to the Golden State Warriors, and he’s not a fan of it. Barkley has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Warriors (with the pejorative “jump-shooting team” descriptor being his go-to), and he loves to talk about how nobody was soft back in his day. So of course, Barkley came down hard on Durant’s decision to join the 73-win Warriors, rather than stay in Oklahoma City to try and beat them.
In appearance on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike on Wednesday morning, Barkley did just that.
It’s true: what Durant did is a travesty, and no player in NBA history has ever teamed up with other Hall of Famers in an effort to make his path to a championship easier.
