NBA Hall of Famer and TV commentator Charles Barkley has never been shy with his assessments, nor should he be given his occupation. However on Wednesday, while he was promoting a celebrity golf tournament, he took aim some pretty low hanging fruit, the New York Knicks. The franchise's president, Leon Rose is already feeling the heat for the roster he has assembled. Now it is clear that the basketball community's patience with Rose's plan is wearing thin.
He has won five NBA championships as a head coach, with two different franchises. He is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. And, the Miami Heat president, that starred at the former Linton High School in Schenectady some six decades ago, told the media on Monday that he can still do more push ups at 77 than they can!
Just a week ago, the news broke that the law that effects Kyrie Irving with also effect the Yankees and the Mets. No offense to the Nets, but the Yankees and the Mets carry a bit more political weight in the Big Apple. Now, it looks like the Brooklyn Nets will get their star for the rest of their games, home and away.
