Charles Barkley RumorsAll NBA Players
Charles Barkley, however, is not impressed. In an interview with Dime Magazine, the Hall of Famer and former Phoenix Sun put it bluntly when he described Curry as “just a shooter,” and when challenged on it, doubled down on his simplistic assessment of Curry’s game. DIME: We saw in the early 2000s with Shaquille O’Neal that it was obvious that he was going to score – just with his sheer power, size, and skill. It was kind of the same with you in the early 1990s, too. Does Steph compare to that at all? That feeling of inevitability you guys provided at your peak? Charles Barkley: He’s just a great shooter. It’s a totally different animal.
Dan Devine: “Obviously, I don’t like your general manager,” Charles Barkley tells Kevin McHale about Daryl Morey. Yeah, he’s made that pretty clear.
Are the Warriors a jump-shooting team? Oh, yeah. I’m comfortable with that, too, no matter what Charles [Barkley] says. We’re comfortable because of the way that we get our jumpers. We move the ball. We have guys that can make shots. We’re a jump shot-making team. We have the talent, and we find different ways to get guys open. It’s not just going out there and jacking shots. There’s a method to the madness.
And this is enough for former NBA player and current TNT NBA analyst, Charles Barkley, to declare Duncan done and has nothing left in the tank. Speaking on the Bill Simmons podcast, Barkley stated Duncan has nothing left in the tank and agree he would have retired if not for the signing of LaMarcus Aldridge. I think Tim Duncan is pretty much done. You know what’s so funny? Everybody knows Kobe Bryant’s done. Who do you think is playing better this year? Kobe Bryant or Tim Duncan?
