Charles Barkley might have been one of the best players of his generation, but currently, he is known for his appearances on the show 'NBA on TNT', where he is an analyst.
While Barkley has often been the most unfiltered member of the show, it is no secret that Chuck sometimes makes the most awful predictions ever. Given his history with predictions, it was no surprise to see that his 2022 NBA predictions fell flat.
One of them was about the Golden State Warriors. Earlier this season, Chuck claimed that the Dubs did not have much chance to compete for a title. 10 months later, it is safe to say that the take hasn't aged well.
Warriors superstar and Finals MVP Stephen Curry recently clapped back at Charles Barkley. When asked whether Barkley will be among the Top 70 in the ongoing 2022 American Century Championship, Curry had a very funny reaction.
"As much faith as Chuck has had in the Warriors & jump-shooting teams."
But if there is one thing that Chuck does when others do not is come up with witty and funny responses. Reacting to the top 70 comments by Steph, Barkley knocked the ball out of the park with his reaction.
“Pretty harsh criticism coming from the 3rd best shooter in his own family… He is a flash in a pan, I never thought he was gonna amount to anything & so far, I'm correct. He is the 3rd best shooter in his own family, so he doesn't have much room to talk.”
While Curry might believe that Barkley won't finish in the top 70 of the tournament, things look good for the Hall of Famer as he is tied for the 48th spot as round 2 of the competition continues. Curry, meanwhile, is slightly ahead of the Chuckster in 39th place.
But Chuck might end up beating a Curry after all as Seth Curry trails the former MVP and is in the 67th spot. Do you think Charles Barkley can make it to the top 70 of the 2022 American Century Championship?
