Charles Barkley vs Rockets GM Daryl Morey Over Analytics is Silly Entertainment

This is Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey responding to Charles Barkley’s halftime comments about the Rockets’ defense vs. the Phoenix Suns. Barkley claimed Houston’s defense (the Rockets are currently without center Dwight Howard) is “the worst in the league.”

And this is what happens when you throw rocks at the Charles Barkley:

Ok, we can sit here and debate all day whether Charles Barkley is:

An arrogant idiot

2) Hilarious

3) A Genius

4) All the Above

…so, let’s not do that [yet].

Rather, let’s state some facts:

1) ‘Inside the NBA’ is appointment television. Yes, it starts at 2 AM for East Coasters and it’s impossible for a lot of people to stay up for, but, that’s why God gave us DVR — for special moments like this.

2) Barkley’s comprehension of “analytics” is perplexing. If I said: “(Insert NBA team HERE) is intentionally-fouling DeAndre Jordan right now because he’s a 37% Free Throw Shooter,” would Charles respond: “No they’re not, they’re fouling him because he can’t shoot?”

3) Barkley said: “No good NBA team gives up 118 points.” Did you know: Charles Barkley’s 1993 Phoenix Suns team gave up 118+ points to opponent ELEVEN TIMES that season?

P.S. They went to the NBA Finals.

4) Every single NBA team has surrendered 115 points or more at least once this season. Every. Single. One.

5) I think we found out why Charles Barkley has lost millions gambling.

6) I would pay $500 to watch Barkley and Morey meet in Temecula.

7) It appears there has been a line drawn in the sand — you’re either with Barkley, or, against him…

Charles wasn’t done…

After disposing of Morey, he moved on to Gabrielle Union (again) — whom he has had beef with in the past… saying “don’t ever mention yourself in the same sentence as Meryl Streep, you don’t see her in Snakes on a Plane

The best part about it all…? Gabrielle Union wasn’t even in the movie.

Please don’t ever change, Charles Barkley. We love you just the way you are.
