‘Inside The NBA’ Crew Befuddled At Charles Barkley’s Baseless Atlanta Hawks Take

Charles Barkley is infallible.

Brian Williams gets silenced for one itty bitty lie about being a war hero, and Charles is out here fat-shaming, mocking mental illness, and worst of all, becoming a halfway decent golfer.

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.

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.

Simmy, Swammy, Sally, Samsonite! Way off!

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
