It started on Saturday night, when Barkley called out Durant for not doing enough in the Nets’ first three playoff games (all losses) against the Boston Celtics. Barkley referred to Durant as a “bus rider” and not someone leading the way.
The Nets were swept out of the postseason on Monday night, and Durant responded by posting screenshots of the apparent superteams Barkley had played on during his career, insinuating that Sir Charles had done the same thing he did.

As the world awaits Barkley’s inevitable response on Inside the NBA tonight, the Dream Teamer and NBA Hall of Famer is a hot topic of conversation on social media.

Well for one Barkley was traded and only after the window had closed in Phoenix. It’s not like Barkley, after losing to Houston in 94 and 95, skipped out as an FA. And the Sixers comparison is a joke-every HOF’r on that team retired within a year or two

Hmm Barkley wasn’t the only one that trashed him, try most of the TV analysts. Champions and non champions. It’s OK you still got game you just got swept.
