Charles Barkley: I Can Outrebound Tristan Thompson & I’m ‘Fat & Old’
On Thursday night LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 77 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists, yet it still wasn’t enough. The Warriors came roaring back in the final minutes and with the help of a Kevin Durant dagger three, they took a commanding 3-0 series lead in the NBA Finals.
It seems as if every single Warriors player has shined in this series, while Cavs players have been spotty at best. None have been spottier than $82 million player Tristan Thompson, who has all but forgotten how to play basketball—and, most importantly, rebound the basketball.
The always outspoken Charles Barkley had something to say about the way Thompson has been playing and what he himself could do if a team gave him a jersey right now.
