Draymond Green on the recent TNT criticism: “(Charles) Barkley should stop before I take his job. Because I can do that well, too...He also can’t talk basketball with me either. Not smart enough, not qualified. No rings, can’t sit at this table.”

Dead on. It's why the rings debate is so stupid. People hate super teams, but people also judge players based on rings...so of course players are gonna form super teams.
[–][CLE] LeBron James mr_antman85 144 指標 3小時前
In truth it's really not about rings...if that was the case Russell would he the GOAT hands down...so sometimes rings matter it just depends on the player...that's why this is just stupid...Adam Morrison has 2 rings...so he's better than Barkley, right? If you say that, then someone will say, Adam Morrison, he wasn't that good... But you just used rings as a reason why another player was better than another but somehow bringing up Adam Morrison isn't the same?
So it's just all around stupid.
[–]king_chill 132 指標 3小時前*
He’s just ignoring context. Breaking down everything to rings is dumb. But they are definitely a useful tiebreaker. Draymond is not in the top 20 All Time conversation, Barkley undoubtedly is. Rings are the only reason he’s not above his peers with similar stats and accomplishments. Draymond is insane if he thinks him winning 3 rings puts him in the conversation with Barkley. At best they put him in conversation with Ben Wallace.
[–]Mavericks corenickel 54 指標 2小時前
I think the rings argument as a tiebreaker only works if the players being discussed were the best players on their respective teams. Barkley was the best player on his team with no rings but draymond was the 4th best player on his team with 3 rings
[–]Lakers xodus112 30 指標 2小時前
I think that's what he's saying. No one actually uses rings to elevate role players over superstars. I mean, look at Scottie Pippen. He was a great All-Star with 6 rings who showed he was capable of being the lead guy of a very good team in 1994. Still, no one puts him ahead of Larry Bird at SF despite having twice as many rings.
[–]Babyscanoe 105 指標 3小時前
Imagine Charles Barkley at the same age as draymond as been on the warriors on that team. Steph/klay/Barnes/Barkley/Bogut and then replacing Barnes with KD and looney for Bogut for the 3rd and 4th season. They win 4 rings instead of 2 for sure. Even after KD and klay got hurt last year Barkley and curry would’ve destroyed on their own. Rings culture is toxic and dray has some serious gall to say stupid shit like this.

Im older in my 30s. I saw every MJ title, Shaq in 99-02, LeBron 09-13 2014-2017. Barkley is one of the 10 or so most legit motherfuckers of my life
Barkley was the only player in the 90s that MJ couldn't intimidate on any level. Glove's tricks backfired on him. The entire Knicks and Heat organizations tried to submit Michael. Drexler and Kemp and Ewing and Malone went toe to toe with Mike, and came away realizing that they didn't have that level in them, and it changed their careers.
Charles against MJ was insane. Chuck was like a loudmouth kid who picks fights all the time, he loved getting trash talked, so he could have his turn. He would smile and widen his eyes while jawing at dudes in huge playoff games with the same unfazedness as when he was playing cards on the bus.
Charles wasn't afraid of the moment. He would take any 3, post up any player. He would bow his head and run a 1 on 3 fastbreak like a maniac thinking dunk all the way, and no one could stop him from doing it.Don't ever let TNT shenanigans make you forget how badass Charles was as a player.

what draymond said is stupid for sure, but I wouldn't get carried away thinking he necessarily believes any of it. I think he's operating from barkley talked shit - talk shit back. I think he's always going to talk shit back to someone and he just came up with some basic shit.

Prime Barkley was a fucking wrecking ball. Draymond is good at what he does, but Chuck was light years ahead.
And while Draymond can be opinionated and outspoken, he’s nowhere near as funny and charismatic as Barkley, so Chuck’s job is 100% safe.

He is nowhere near the player Charles was. I don't think he can take his job either, his podcast didn't really go anywhere.
But he's also a great player who is not the kind of guy to take shit lying down when disrespected constantly on national TV. I mean, Draymond's never been self-deprecating. Dude is aggressive and fiery and absolutely going to clap back. And he's not wrong to go after Chuck's basketball takes either, since they're incredibly antiquated.

He had me until he started using rings as a comeback, that's G league shit, especially when you are talking to a literal legend.
I'm all for witty banter between players and analysts, but rings ernah is such a weak comeback I'm honestly disappointed. Especially coming from the guy who wasn't even the second best player on those championship teams.
