Charles Barkley isn’t shy when it comes to giving his opinion. The TNT analyst fired back at Golden State Warrior Draymond Green Thursday night (Feb. 16), regarding his “slave master mentality” comments about the New York Knicks situation between team owner James Dolan and former player Charles Oakley. The response stemmed from Green speaking on his “Dray Day” podcast Wednesday (Feb. 15).
“That’s a slave mentality — slave master mentality. That’s ridiculous. It was all fine and dandy when he was laying people out, taking fines and all this stuff for your organization. But now all of a sudden when he says something that he feels, it’s a problem,” said the former Michigan State Spartan.
Sir Charles felt compelled to shut down Green’s comparison. “That is just stupid,” Barkley told ESPN. “I don’t think you ever use basketball analogies to compare to slavery when guys are making 20, 30 million dollars a year. I just think that’s just stupid.”
