Charles Barkley is infallible.
The man only gets stronger, even as his cursory knowledge of modern day basketball gets weaker. Facts don’t attract eyeballs.
Barkley’s latest viral oopsie came last night in the lead-up to Game 4 Tuesday night when he suggested that Jeff Teague should start for the Atlanta Hawks in place of an injured Trae Young.
“I would start Jeff Teague”
Chuck forgets that Jeff Teague plays for the Bucks now 💀

The mere suggestion that any team with title hopes should start Jeff Teague is ludicrous enough, add in that the dude doesn’t even play for Atlanta and hasn’t since before January 2020.
Barkley then adamantly argues that he misspoke, before further burying himself by asking, ‘Who’s another guard on the Hawks?’
Never change brother.
