Charles Barkley does not Think the Knicks are Contenders
Charles Barkley being outspoken is like saying that water is wet. If you’ve ever watched “Inside the NBA” then you already know how Barkley feels about the recent Knicks teams. Check out his most recent comments about the Knicks.
“They’re not very good,” he said. “Well, let’s see: they don’t play defense, they don’t rebound the ball and they don’t have a point guard. Other than that, everything’s lovely with them.”
Lupica asked Barkley if the Knicks have a chance to compete in the Eastern Conference.
“Oh, not even close,” Barkley said. “Let me tell you something: Miami and Chicago are so far ahead of every team in the East.”
Barkley goes on to rip the Knicks’ signing of point guard Baron Davis to a veteran minimum contract. Davis is sidelined with a back injury and may return late this month.
“I don’t think Baron Davis can hold up enough to run Mike D’Antoni’s system,” Barkley told Lupica. “…. Baron’s been a terrific player in his day, but it ain’t his day anymore.” “I don’t think a point guard by committee can run his system,” he said.
