So in the interest of getting some attention his way (as well as drumming up some excitement for the playoffs) NBA on TNT analyst Charles Barkley sprinkled a little hate on the Warriors, claiming that the Clippers would knock them off.

He does this sort of stuff all the time, so it’s hard to get too worked up, but does he have a point, or is he just drumming up controversy? It sounds like he does believe it, but a lot can happen between now and the second round (which is when they’ll likely meet), so we’ll see how this unfolds.
