Maybe Charles Barkley was right after all.
Earlier this week, the former NBA all-star turned analyst proclaimed the Warriors dynasty was over and went on to say the team would not make the playoffs.
I think their window is shut. I don’t think they can score enough I want to make my prediction, Ernie. I said they were going to be the 7th-8th seed, they’re not going to make the playoffs because they just can’t score enough… When you look at your team, you say ‘OK, Steph can get me 30. D’Angelo [Russell] can get me 20. Draymond, even though he’s a heck of a player, he’s only going to get me 15.’ That’s not enough in the Western Conference. This year.”
Barkley’s prediction is coming true as the Warriors got absolutey spanked by the previously 0-2 OKC Thunder.
The Warriors went on to lose by 28 points for their first back-to-back losses to start off a season since 2009.
NBA fans couldn’t wait to tear into the Warriors.
