VIDEO: Charles Barkley Blasts Lakers, Praises Dwight Howard for Decision

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles LakersFormer NBA star and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley has no problem expressing his opinion. Barkley says whatever comes to mind at any given moment and has a career after basketball as a result of being entertaining for his antics and outspoken personality.

Although Barkley has been able to extend his career in the spotlight after basketball for being outspoken, the Hall of Famer has always seemed to have it out for Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. There’s no doubt Barkley respects the five-time NBA champion and the storied NBA franchise, but he’s always been quick to say Kobe’s career is over while criticizing the Lakers franchise for moves made.

During an interview with ESPN recently, Barkley talked about Dwight Howard signing with the Houston Rockets over the Lakers. Barkley believed it was the right move and even if he didn’t sign with Houston that the Golden State Warriors would’ve been the better option over the aging Lakers.

Along with basically saying that Dwight didn’t have a future in Los Angeles as a perennial title contender, Barkley also blasted the storied franchise for no longer being a contender with the window of opportunity “boarded up” preparing for a hurricane as he put it.
