Charles Barkley Not Thrilled With Durant’s Decision To ‘Gravy Train’ On Warriors Team To Win A Title

Charles Barkley Not Thrilled With Durant’s Decision To ‘Gravy Train’ On Warriors Team To Win A Title

Posted: Updated:

NBA analyst and former league MVP Charles Barkley isn’t thrilled with Kevin Durant’s decision to sign with Golden State and “gravy train on a terrific Warriors team” to win a championship.

"Kevin is a terrific player, he's a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team,” Barkley said on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike. “Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State."

During Barkley’s 16-season hall of fame career, he played with the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets.

He wrapped his career as an 11-time All-Star, but only made it to the NBA Finals once (in 1992-93, the same year he won MVP) only to fall short to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls in Game 6.

"We develop this thing where you keep telling these guys, 'Hey man, if you don't win a championship you're a bum.' I don't feel like a bum," he said. "I'm pretty sure Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone and John Stockton -- we think we're pretty damn good.”

Other NBA greats who’ve never won a title include Allen Iverson, Reggie Miller, Dominique Wilkins, George Gervin and Elgin Baylor.
