VIDEO: Charles Barkley Says He’ll Get On His Knees If Warriors Repeat As Champs, Picks Who Will Beat Them In Playoffs

There goes Chuck again.

After recently guaranteeing that the Warriors won’t repeat as NBA Champions, Charles Barkley has now explained why it won’t happen – and named the team that will beat them in the playoffs.

“If the Golden State Warriors win the championship this year I will get on my knees and congratulate them… Look at the playoffs last year, they did not play one team that was healthy in the playoffs…

Everybody acts like they won the championship by winning jump shots last year but they actually did not. They won because LeBron got tired.

According to Barkley, it now isn’t the team he seemed to have previously picked to win the NBA title that will beat the Warriors, but another Western Conference team:

“In my opinion, the team that has the best chance of beating the Warriors is the Los Angeles Clippers.”

Although Barkley claims Chris Paul as the “best leader in the NBA”, his reasoning for why the Clippers will win hinges largely on the play of DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin:

“You can’t take anything away from the Warriors. But I don’t believe in a seven-game series, with everybody healthy, they can’t beat a big, physically dominating team.”

Barkley also refers to Lance Stephenson and Josh Smith as “dumb and dumber” in the clip, explaining that the Clippers are better off without them.
