Charles Barkley left Shaq speechless once again with his latest hot take.
During halftime of Nets-Celtics game, an awestruck Barkley made the claim that James Harden is the best one-on-one player he’s ever seen considering how the game is called today.
“He’s the best one-on-one player I may have ever seen. Now he’s not as good as Michael or Kobe, I don’t want people to think I’m going crazy, but as far as the way he shoots, cause those guys are not great three=point shooters, he can make a three anytime he wants to, he can get to the basket anytime he wants to, and he’s a great free throw shooter. I’m just telling you that the way the game is called today, he’s the best one-on-one player I’ve ever seen”
An exasperated Shaquille O’Neal told Barkley that he says “the dumbest things sometimes” before walking off the set in disgust following Barkley’s comment.
