I don’t mind Barkley saying he prefers money over human rights.
A lot of people are like that but don’t call people who value human rights over money jackasses. That just makes you look like a fool.
Here is what he had to say on the Dan Patrick Show.
For the most part … NBA players and execs have shied away from backing Morey — and Barkley says he certainly gets why.
“They have billions of dollars at stake,” Barkley says. “It’s a business decision. I understand the NBA. The players and the owners both got billions of dollars at stake.”
As for those who don’t get it … he didn’t hold back on ripping them, by calling them “idiots and jackasses and fools.”
“The NBA makes billions of dollars in China and that goes to the owners and the players,” Barkley added. “So, it’s a business decision, and I totally understand it.”
