News flash, Draymond Green and Charles Barkley love throwing shade at each other. For years the two enigmas have been going back and forth on each other. Green fired some straight jabs at Barkley last week.
“If he keeps talking, I’ll take it soon,” Green said, via ESPNs Nick Friedell. “Sooner than he thinks. Still, he probably should be quiet. He also can’t talk basketball with me, either. Not smart enough, not qualified — no rings can’t sit at this table.”
Barkley waited a few days to respond, but when he did, he went HAM on Green.
“I like Draymond. He’s a good player, but you know what he is? He’s like the guy in the boy band who’s the least important member, and he thinks the crowd is cheering for him,” Barkley said. “He doesn’t realize he’s standing next to Justin Timberlake. He’s the least famous person in the boy band and he thinks he’s a star.”
As for the mention of Green taking Chuck’s TNT job, Barkley simply threw a little shade by saying he doesn’t have the face for TV.
“First of all, he don’t have a face for TV,” Barkley joked. “He’s got a face for radio, and he’s not gonna get my TV gig.”
At the end of the day, they probably will be going back and forth with each other forever and to be honest, we’re here for it.
