As per usual, Charles Barkley was back in the headlines this week for saying the 1996 Chicago Bulls “would kill” the Golden State Warriors. You know, just the usual Chuck rant on small-ball teams who don’t bang enough on the inside for his taste.
But it wasn’t just the Warriors on Chuck’s sights this week — he also threw a nice jab at James Harden while his co-host, Kenny Smith, started doing the “stir the pot” celebration on “Inside the NBA:”
Kenny just teed that baby up for Chuck, who is most definitely on the “Kevin McHale got screwed” train (via the Houston Chronicle):
“I just think it’s really unfair to Kevin McHale. That team, when I talk about contenders in the West, I’ve not once mentioned the Rockets. I just think it’s the GM covering his own ass and Kevin McHale got screwed, plain and simple.”
