Kerr and Barkley hate on the Knicks!
These talking heads on TNT talk a lot of **** about the Knicks. Kerr, i imagine, because he thinks Amar'e is overrated and wouldn't give him the contract and hates to see his new team succeeding. And Barkley because he is a complete idiot.
How do these guys qualify as experts? Barkley is so stupid it hurts my head every time he talks. The guy is borderline retarded. His approach to everything is "TALK NOW, THINK SOMETIME WHEN I"M DEAD" He was the same way on the court and used his size and athleticism to win matchups, rather then making smart plays.
I guess it's his inciting remarks that get viewers, kind of like the "Don Cherry" of basketball, with a lot less respect from his peers and a lot less knowledge of his game of choice.
Either way, they lambasted the knicks throughout the night even though we were destroying the bulls. The first half was all knicks and still they could only find time to talk about noah and rose during the halftime show.
Lambasting the knocks like clockwork, even while we perform and show contrary evidence to said hate?
Sounds like Sir Charles reads a lot of KO. We know he isn't always smart enough to find inspiration on his own.

the two turds are doing it because when they were in Phoenix, the Suns organization brainwashed them to hate the Knicks Barkley after the 1993 brawl and Kerr with management and their disgust for Dantoni.
watching the pregame and in game analysis was a Rose suckoff. and then Barkley saying the knicks "suck" at half time made me laugh the way the media hates on us is ridiculous loll. but no worries, i just wonder what they'll be saying about us when were playing on TNT in the playoffs in april.
Kerr is just tight about his situation with the Suns so its expected he'd hate on the knicks. loll.
seriously!!! i mean, they were just blowing hot air about rose the entire game and then when taj gibson was playing very well for the bulls, they were like "if that was boozer it'd be a more defensive game and the knicks would be losing"
HOW??? we SHOT THE 3 BALL Boozer isn't a great perimiter defender, maybe if we were killing them in the paint, but come ON!!! it's like they just play fantasy basketball now and don't actually have to pay attention to whats going on. they'll just jock miami and any other "hot" team cause they lack actual analyical skill!
i'd take eric snow on my show over any of these guys. he's a knowledgeable former playmaker with great networking skills and a flair for actually doing his homework on a game. atleast he analyises a game in front of him and doesn't just chalk it up to what amounts to random ****, while blowing off the losing teams "star" players.

Hey guys. I'm new to the forum but have been a lurker for the longest time without a code name.
I know what you mean about Barkley & Kerr. Like what does Kerr know about basketball besides being in the shadow of a legend...Jordan.
Barkley on the other hand is a complete "Knuckle-head".
He flat out said that the knicks are not a good time. These pcs of shyte announcers need be fired & replaced with guys like Clyde.

Wowwwwwwww. I really think Kerr and especially Brakely despise the knicks for some reason. I cant believe that these two men have the utter sheerness to thrash and talk smack against the knicks. I think this shows you that they just dont respect the knicks and despise the team. I think this shows you that Barks just hatessssss the knicks with the words coing out of his mouth when the knicks are mentioned and that Kerr feels betrayed agaisnt his relationship with Amare in Phoenix and the contract. i think Walsh secretly knows something that Kerr doesn`t know and unaware of whats going on and is being clever in keeping it quiet and staying patient rather than making an qucik descision which i think definetly will hamper the chemistry of the players.
Of course Kerr was gonna hate on STAT after letting him walk away from Phoenix.
But ease up on "Chuck" a little bit. First of all, you know he is more comic relief than analyst. But as a player, Chuck is mos def a "top 50" NBA player. I know this because I "met" Chuck in person onetime. Not really met, but saw him at a club waayyyyyy back in the day when Chuck was on the Sixers. I was to scared to talk to him because Chuck had throw some poor slob through a window the week before. But as I stood next to Chuck(and Armon Gilliam), I noticed while being very broad shouldered, Chuck was barely taller than me and I am only 6'1". To play power forward at Chuck's size in the NBA will probably never happen again.
I met Juwan Howard once. Does that make him a hall of fame player?

If that is so clear and you hate on players it makes you sound a ignorant.
Sir Charles is on NBA TV etc. for the sake of 2 things:
Comic relief and dumbing down the show for inbreds. He's the Barney Gumble of anything analytical.
But, he's also an MVP. So saying he relied on bulk and brutality for success is poppy****.
I doubt many here watched either of those series, but his game 7 performance against Seattle was unbelievable. There are four players in NBA history who have compiled at least 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4,000 assists: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Karl Malone and Charles Barkley.
In Barkley's first season with the Suns, the team had the NBA's best record and he became only the third player to win league MVP honors in the season after being traded. For the year, Barkley averaged 25.6 points and 12.2 rebounds to rank fifth and sixth, respectively. The nine-year veteran then carried Phoenix all the way to the NBA Finals. Chicago defeated Phoenix 4-2, but Barkley was brilliant, averaging 26.6 points and 13.6 rebounds in 42.8 minutes per game in the postseason. He also scored 44 points and hauled down 24 rebounds in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Seattle SuperSonics.
So, he can still cram a dick in his ear for bashing the Knicks, but his opinion is a fart in the wind. Still, you can't take away from him as a player. He was awesome.
Steve Kerr has ridden the backs of better men to be where he is, was and will be. His opinion is so obviously contrived by his own **** ups and he's a silly tool for giving it away so blatantly.
