Charles Barkley:Worst-ever NBA idea ?
« on: March 07, 2019, 11:05:43 am »
Diclosure : I love me some Charles Wade Barkley,as a player and announcer. On the court, the rugged six-four-and-three-quarters-inch,275-pounder rebounded far above his height, once being the NBA'S leading rebounder ,plus he backed down from nobody. He's as much a presence in the booth,sometimes out there but often spot-on . (And we're both Business Administration majors at our respective Universities,Windor,Ont.,Can. for Yours truly : Auburn for Sir Charles. )
However,since like all sports leagues,the NBA is a copy-cat concern,for about a decade,teams lost their common sense as they drafted a bunch of tubby dudes they believed would be the next Barkley,unearthing now such comparable,as " The Round Mound Of Rebound" is one of a kind. This flawed thinking hurt some clubs for years and depressed the level of play in the 90's. What say you,boyos ?

Yeah,but Oliver Miller,though talented,allowed himself to take on Falstaffian porportions.Barkley,though was just round and tubby,about 30-40 pounds overweight to Miller's 100 extra lb. of suet .

Remember when Barkley got his ass kicked by Hakeem Olajuwon and the Rockets in 1994 and 1995?
When Barkley lost to Jordan in the finals?

When a desperate old Barkley joined the Rockets in a desperate attempt to gravy train a ring? All he did was run Drexler off and fail with Scotty no tippin Pippen.

Barkley sucks. He can hang with those other ringless losers...Malone, Stockton, Ewing, Starks, Hardaway too...

Yeah, that Charles Barkley.

Barkley averaged 25 points and 11.7 rebounds per game (a half-rebound per game higher than SEVEN-TWO Kareem Abdul-Jabbar !!!!) ,so he's a deserving Basketball Hall Of Famer. He and the other all-time greats were denied the Lawrence O'Brien Trophy because of one man :The Bulls' Number 23 .
