Charles Barkley has taken several shots at Draymond Green in recent months. Now, Green has returned the courtesy to Chuck, continuing their entertaining beef. Barkley has been outspoken on the season the Golden State Warriors star is having, blasting him for his ‘triple-singles’ whenever he’s had the chance.
On Friday, the power forward fired back at the NBA legend and slammed him for being ringless.
“Barkley should stop before I take his job though. Because I can do that job too,” he told reporters.
“He also can’t talk basketball with me either. Not smart enough, not qualified, no rings. Can’t sit at this table.”
The former Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns player mocked Green’s averages this campaign, but the big man has had enough of that.
“Draymond don’t talk as much since he’s averaged that triple-single,” he said on “Inside the NBA” in January.
After that, he repeated the same comment on Draymond after he was ejected from a game against the Lakers last February 27.
Green is averaging 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game this term. This marks the fourth time in his eight seasons that he has averaged “triple-single” numbers, including the Warriors’ run to the Finals last year.
This is a beef that dates from 2018, when Barkley said, “I just want somebody to punch him in the face.”
This certainly won’t be the end of this rivalry and we can’t wait to see what these two are going to bring next.
