Charles Barkley criticizes Giannis Antetokounmpo
The “old heads” continue to take shots on current NBA superstars.
This time, Hall of Fame power forward/Inside The NBA host Charles Barkley criticized Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo for his failure to bring the team to postseason success for two straight years.
“He’s got a long way to go as a player,” Barkley said. “You are playing against 2 good teams and 5 bad teams so your numbers average out. They got beaten 2 years in a row, exactly the same way. We were talking about the ‘Toronto wall’ two years ago, then they get beat by the ‘Toronto wall’ last year. You notice when they play games, their half-court offense is not good … I would love to see Giannis post-up more.”
Barkley has recently criticized James Harden for his departure with the Houston Rockets, while his TNT co-host Shaquille O’Neal made a blunt comment on Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell saying he have yet to reach the next level.
