Charles Barkley RumorsAll NBA Players
Charles Barkley made a really good observation recently about why Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball was just “half of a player” because of his left-leaning shooting style that makes him vulnerable. Now, he’s just trolling the rookie who’s now shooting 29.2 percent from the floor in 12 games. Here’s some footage from Inside the NBA in which the Hall of Famer starts dodging something he’s seeing through the air. When asked what he was ducking, Barkley replied, “Lonzo Ball’s shooting. Some bricks coming around!”
The inimitable Charles Barkley sees it much the same way. Looking ahead to his broadcasting duties with Turner Sports, Barkley didn’t hesitate to voice his frustration with the perceived gulf between the Warriors and the 29 other teams, even after all the summer shuffling. “The toughest thing for me is I have to get on TV and fake it for seven months that it’s not going to be the Warriors and Cavs in the finals again,” Barkley said.
NBA TV’s Open Court season preview program saw some of the faces we’ve gotten used to analyzing the NBA in Shaq, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and a few other former players including former Rockets’ coach Kevin McHale. When prompted to talk about the arrival of Chris Paul in Houston, he spoke volumes about how great of a move it was partially stemming from the fact that his former player, James Harden isn’t a leader.
