Former Knick Charles Oakley Calls Charles Barkley A ‘Coward’ & Kevin Garnett Weak
Apparently Charles Oakley has decided to call out a few people in the NBA. While making an appearance with Jim Rome, he called out Charles Barkley, Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins.
Charles Oakley spent almost 20 years in the NBA, and 10 of those seasons with the New York Knicks. Apparently Oakley still isn’t a fan of Charles Barkley or the fact that he has been outspoken against the Knicks and coach Mike D’Antoni. In a recent interview Oakley went as far to call Sir Charles a ‘coward’.
Barkley for his size was a good player but he’s a coward though, he wasn’t a leader and wasn’t a role model. Now he talks so bad about younger guys, I don’t respect that from him. He wants to be funny, that whole TNT thing and all that, they’re like some clowns on that show.
After getting after Barkey, Oakley then unleashed on Boston’s Kevin Garnett saying that he is one of the ‘weakest guys to ever play the game’. He still wasn’t done because he also had Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins in the cross hairs too, saying that he was similar to Garnett. He would go on to call both of them loudmouths who just ‘holler and complain’.
