Charles Oakley calls out Garnett, Barkley
Former NBA player Charles Oakley appeared on The Jim Rome Show on Tuesday and offered his opinions about Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett and NBA personality Charles Barkley.”Garnett left Minnesota and hollered and screamed and all that but he’s not a tough guy. He’s one of the weakest guys to ever play the game. He’s a complimentary player and went to Paul Pierce’s team and won a championship. I wouldn’t consider him a top 10 tough guy,” Oakley said.He didn’t hold back when talking about Charles Barkley either.”Barkley for his size was a good player but he’s a coward though. He was a good player for his size but he wasn’t a leader and wasn’t a role model. Now he talks so bad about younger guys, I don’t respect that from him. He’s a fraud, he can criticize all the younger kids and if he got something to say, call them and talk to them before you just blast them. He wants to be funny, that whole TNT thing and all that, they’re like some clowns on that show.”Oakley averaged 9.7 points and 9.6 rebounds in his 19-year NBA career with the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Toronto Raptors, Washington Bullets and Houston Rockets.
