Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green was his usual hothead self after he went all out in slamming NBA analyst Charles Barkley during a recent interview session. The footage from the interview has since gone viral on social media where Green had some harsh words for the former 76ers star.
Draymond Green on the recent TNT criticism: “(Charles) Barkley should stop before I take his job. Because I can do that well, too...He also can’t talk basketball with me either. Not smart enough, not qualified. No rings, can’t sit at this table.” pic.twitter.com/AmGw6jZidE— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) March 6, 2020
Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal have been repeatedly criticising NBA stars during the post-game show on NBA on TNT. Charles Barkley has particularly been critical of Draymond Green's performances this season. The 30-year-old has struggled to keep the Warriors afloat in absence of the stars like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. While the three-time NBA champion may not be at blame solely, his performances have taken a dip this season. He is averaging a lowly 8.0 points and 6.2 rebounds this season.
The 30-year-old apparently had enough of the criticism from Charles Barkley after he threatened to take Barkley's job on NBA on TNT. Draymond Green further slammed Charles Barkley for his basketball knowledge claiming without any NBA rings Barkley shouldn't even sit on the table.
He already didn’t make enough money playing, so he needs that job. He should stop talking to me. I’d like to (have) a tendency to end people, so he should stop before I take his job - Draymond Green calls out Charles Barkley
Warriors are currently enduring a tough season in the NBA. With a 14-49 (win-loss) record, Warriors are the worst side in the NBA and may have already started planning for the next NBA season. Stephen Curry made his much-awaited return to the Warriors line-up during their 121-113 loss to the Raptors. With Curry back in action, Warriors could face an upturn in form in the coming weeks. However, a knee injury to Green means he is facing an extended spell on the sidelines.
They will host Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night (Sunday IST). The Warriors vs 76ers live streaming will be on Sony LIV while the live telecast will be provided by Sony TEN Network.
