Charles Barkley takes shots at anybody and everybody on TNT’s Inside the NBA. One his biggest targets last week was . When and Klay Thompson are healthy, Green looks like a star on the court. When they’re not out there, his shortcomings become quite obvious and that’s exactly what’s happened this season. The Warriors are one the worst teams in the league while Green’s statline has become anemic. This led Barkley to say “Draymond don’t talk as much since he’s averaging that triple single.”
Recently, Green clapped back at Barkley with what can only be described as a weak retort. “You make everything sound like a Wendy’s sandwich… or maybe he’s speaking in terms my rings,” Green said.
Regardless whose side you’re on here, there is no denying that Green came through with a pretty lackadaisical response here. Green is known as a great trash-talker but this seems a little weak. Barkley has been roasted for his lack a championship ring since the 90s and at this point, we’re sure the insults don’t affect him like they used to.
Green might need to go back to the drawing board after this one.
