Charles Barkley is a retired National Basketball Association player who is also a Hall of Famer and a legend known for his great near-the-edge skills. Now that he has retired, Charles Barkley has entered the entertainment side of the NBA as he is now a successful NBA Analyst for the NBA on TNT (Turner Network Television). He’s a great player critic and the most honest person to say that without thinking twice as he picks a lot of hot takes against NBA players every now and then. Recently, while sitting on TNT alongside Shaquille O’Neal and other NBA crew members, he appreciated the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving-led Brooklyn Nets. The regular season has just ended and Sir Charles has made the headlines for his faith in the Nets team.
Currently, the Brooklyn Nets, led by Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, are the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference with a record 44 wins and 38 losses at .537. The team is stuck in the play-in tournament as of now and will face the Cleveland Cavaliers to make it into the postseason. The Brooklyn Nets have always been championship contenders, but chemistry issues and injuries simply ruined their legendary run. As they topped the leaderboard long enough for KD to get injured and Uncle Drew, along with James Harden, failed and fell without him. But Charles Barkley has acknowledged the fact that they still have it and the ability to win against any team in a playoff match.
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are easily the top 10 in the league right now. The seven-footed is the top scorer the game has ever seen, and the other has god-like grips and legendary IQ plays. The duo is enough to upset any team on their way to the championship if healthy. Even Charles Barkley thinks the same thing, despite being honest all season and not on their bus, but now, observing the form the team has maintained while building a strong and young core, they certainly have a good chance of bringing anyone down.

Charles Barkley on the Brooklyn Nets’ postseason run
Charles Barkley Appreciates and Praises the Nets All-Star Duo Quoted: “Brooklyn for me on every series unless you take away Giannis, Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum. Brooklyn will have two best players in each series. After those three guys I mentioned. They play in Miami, they will have the two best players on the team. Milwaukee says they will have the top two players in each series aside from Giannis and Embiid and Jayson Tatum. So you got a chance. So I personally wouldn’t want to play Brooklyn because they’re the best… Like I said, man, the Brooklyn team is scary, especially when Drummond comes off the bench while Kyrie and Kevin are the two, I think Giannis the best player in the league I agree with you but the two unstoppable 1v1 players in the NBA today are Kyrie Irving and KD. You can single-handedly win 4 out of 7 games.”
Charles Barkley kept his stance very honest, backing it up with facts and not once taking a shot or disregarding any other superstar of their claim. He was genuine throughout his rally and even Shaquille O’Neal agreed with him. The Brooklyn Nets certainly have a shot at making the Finals, as it’s never easy for any team to beat the Nets in a seven-game series. Especially when they have an extensive, experienced and young roster ready to support their veterans. As of now, the Nets have a fair shot at taking on the Jayson Tatum-led Boston Celtics in the first round. But nothing is certain until the end of the play-in tournament.
