Charles Barkley is not a fan of super teams.
It should be noted that Barkley himself forced a couple of trades to get on a Superteam, but alas he isn’t going to root for the NETS to win.
“I’m not a fan of superteams,” Barkley said on a conference call Wednesday to discuss the NBA playoffs and playing in his 26th American Century Championship golf event. “If they win it, they win it. But I want to make it perfectly clear — I’m rooting against those guys. I’m rooting against all superteams. I’m old school.”
“The Brooklyn Nets got a much better team, but when they play it’s like a mausoleum,” the former Suns, 76ers, and Rockets star said of Barclays Center. “And they got a much better team. I want [the Knicks] because that place was on fire, and I’m hoping they keep getting better because that place was fire. I’ve been there when it’s been on fire.”
