Lakers News: Charles Barkley Thinks The Lakers Will ‘Stink’

KobeCharles Barkley is widely known amongst Lakers fans for having a strong disdain for the the franchise and the team. He’s never been shy to mention how he feels about this team.

In the summer he said that Dwight Howard did the right thing leaving Los Angeles because he felt that the Lakers are in no position to win now or in the immediate future. And on the eve before the start of the NBA regular season, he publicly blasted the Lakers on Monday Night Football by saying they wouldn’t come close to making the playoffs.

Well Chuck was back at it again tonight when he joined Ric Bucher and Chris Townsend on 95.7 The GAME. He was asked about how he thinks the Lakers will fare with Kobe Bryant coming back. This is what he said.

“The Lakers gonna stink with him, or without him,” Barkley said. “They’re not a good team, and they won’t be a good team.”

We tend to expect these type of things from Sir Charles. But we also expect the Lakers to prove him wrong. Last years team is the prime example, as they shut Barkley up when they made the playoffs despite the fact he predicted they wouldn’t.
