Reason #731 Why We Love Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley was on Boomer and Carton in the Morning out of New York City earlier today to talk NBA basketball and the New York Knicks, specifically. Barkley clearly isn’t impressed by the Knick’s 7-seed in the East, he said, “the Knicks still stink, dude” and called them “the worst defensive team ever.” He also had something to say about the possibility of John Calipari taking over for Mike Woodson at the end of the season:

“Let me tell you something. He’s never going to be drunk enough to take that Knicks job.”

Cal, who doesn’t drink alcohol, stays in the rumor mill for the Knicks job, but if Charles Barkley’s comments are any indication, it wouldn’t be a good move for Calipari.

Chuck tells it like it is.

    Cal won’t make the same mistake he, Pitino and so many other college coaches make. Leaving a job where your kind to be a babysitter over premadonna’s who really call the shots. Every NBA coach is a 15 game losing streak away from getting fired, and they have no control over their roster. After seeing how happy he was on that trophy tour, looks like he might stay ’till he decides to run for governor.

    Silly Rick.. it could have been him. Ha Ha.

    He is 100% correct. The Knicks are not a good franchise. Last championship, 1970.

    2) 15 games is a lot. It’s almost 20% of the season. Why wouldn’t you fire somebody for that?

    2) I agree with all that- just wanted to point out, every college basketball coach at a major program is a 15 game losing streak away from getting fired too.

    #8 – Yah that’s because they WANT to keep losing… the amount of NBA teams at the bottom deliberately tanking this year is laughable… gotta get more ping pong balls!

    Yea 15 is a little much. Cal is king of the bluegrass but i dont think he could lose 15 in a row and not have a little heat.

    OK folks.. no way Calipari loses even 4 in a row at KY. But in the NBA, even very good coaches get fired when their players get hurt or just decide to stop listening. The point is, he’s in control at KY and has a very good thing going. In the NBA – coaches and even GM’s are not in control – the players are. Why would anyone choose that over the KY job?

    We shouldn’t need Charles to tell us that. Even if he did want to make the jump, which at this point in his life, I don’t think he does, it would not be to the Knicks. Larry Brown would kill him if he did, I don’t care how close they are. He would have to work for a mentally unstable owner in James Dolan, he would have to fight constantly with Carmelo Anthony, and he wouldnt be able to control his roster without starting a public feud after which no player would want to play for him. If he listens to anything Larry Brown says, which I would think he does considering Brown was his mentor, he will not ever go pro. After what Dolan and Joe Dumars and Michael Jordan put him through, no way Brown would say nice things about coaching in that league. Calipari would listen to him I believe.
