Charles Barkley: Klay Thompson second-best player in the NBA

Like many basketball fans, Charles Barkley feels that LeBron James is the best all-around player in the world. Barkley’s choice for No. 2 is a little surprising — Klay Thompson. “I think Klay Thompson is the best all-around player in the NBA, other than LeBron James. Kawhi Leonard is third. The only reason I say Klay Thompson is that he’s a better offensive player than...

Thirty Futures: Oklahoma City Thunder

Russell Westbrook doesn't need to be defended anymore. Charles Barkley makes fun of his outfits sometimes, but when you show up to games dressed like Thomas Pynchon's idea of a drug dealer-Zontay Smurfblood, purest heroin this side of the Pacific, or at least La Brea-you're going to catch some ribbing. Any lingering, slightly aggrieved Russ advocacy has the air of passe martyrdom...

Charles Barkley explains why he’s not in NBA 2K17

NBA 2K is one of the best sports video games around right now, and it’s hard to find faults with the game on first glance. Though upon closer examination, there is someone missing from the picture. 2K17’s presentation, like its predecessors, uses a TNT game presentation in all aspects, including the halftime show. But one analyst is conspicuously missing: Charles Barkley. Why...

Barkley continues crusade against jump-shooting Warriors

Charles Barkley continues to stand by his assertion that the Golden State Warriors shouldn't be touted as favorites to win an NBA title due to their status as a primarily jump-shooting team.

Kevin Durant on Monday conceded that he is happy the Warriors lost in the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers. And the reason is pretty simple: had Golden State not lost, Durant would have been less likely to consider signing with the team, and the Warriors would have been less desperate when recruiting him. Durant shared his thoughts on the subject during a panel at Stanford...
