Charles Barkley still isn’t making any friends with the Golden State Warriors.
During Thursday’s Inside the NBA, the Hall of Famer weighed in on Kevin Durant’s knee injury, which is set to sideline the star for at least four weeks. Barkley brought up the possibility of the Warriors being without Durant for the playoffs, and he wasn’t too optimistic about Golden State’s chances.

He said that the Warriors had no chance of a title without Durant:
“Without Kevin Durant, they’ve got zero chance at winning the championship. Actually, with the additions the Cavaliers have made, they probably are the leader of the clubhouse. But without Kevin Durant, they’ve got no chance at winning the championship. Zero.”
Barkley continued and doubted that the Warriors would even make it out of the West without Durant:
“If they don’t have Kevin Durant, I don’t even think they get out of the West. That’s just my personal opinion.”
