Charles Barkley isn't sold on the idea of the Warriors winning an NBA title this season. In fact, just one month ago, he was asked to name his top three teams in the Western Conference and he picked the Grizzlies, Trail Blazers, and Mavericks (watch the video here to hear him justify his picks). Forget the fact that the Warriors were—and still are—the best team in the West based on record. The Chuckster has time and time again refused to give them credit this season.
Draymond Green has had just about enough of it. So when he was asked about Barkley criticizing his height and his toughness recently, he snapped for a second and took a series of shots at Barkley. Or more specifically, he reminded Barkley that he never won an NBA title during his career.
"I think he was shorter than me," he said over the weekend, "but hey, maybe he thinks I can't win [a championship] because he ain't got one. So if he's the same size, and he can't win a championship, we'll see what happens. I've got a lot more years to do it than he's got, you know?"
Green didn't stop there, either. He also said that he doesn't even think Barkley should be allowed to talk titles.
"A guy who's not a champion can't talk too much about championships, can he?" he asked. "I'm not sure how much he won anything in his career team-wise. Been to the Finals, but…For him to say that—they won't win because he's too small—maybe that's why he didn't win. Because he was too small."
Shots. Fired. Looks like Barkley can add another name to the growing list of people who hate him.
