Charles Barkley: “Chris Paul Doesn’t Deserve To Make The All-Star Team”

Charles Barkley, Chris Paul

We love Charles Barkley, but far more for the glory of his past playing days past and overall gregarious nature. As a NBA analyst? Let’s just say we often disagree with Chuck.

Isiah Thomas Calls Russell Westbrook “The Mike Tyson Of Point Guards”

Russell Westbrook

Just as important to Russell Westbrook’s game as his unrivaled physical profile is the approach he takes to wielding it. If the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard played with caution and patience as opposed to relentless aggression, he’d hardly be the superstar he is today.

Russell Westbrook

People react differently to personal accomplishments. Some jump for joy. Others shed happy tears. And there’s group that acts as if nothing happened at all. But Russell Westbrook is a whole different kind of man altogether. After notching a historic triple-double of 17 points, 15 rebounds, and 17 assists in his team’s big win over the league-leading Golden State Warriors, the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar gave a quiet and openly hostile post-game interview to reporters.
