Charles Barkley likens Draymond Green to ‘least famous person in the boy band’
Barkley has been poking fun at Green and the Warriors all season since the Dubs are going to miss the playoffs for the first time in the Steve Kerr era. Barkley’s go-to line when making fun of Green is “triple-singles.” He says that when Green finishes with a stat line of something like six points, four rebounds and five assists.
Last week, Green fired back at Barkley by saying Chuck can’t talk basketball with him because of his lack of rings. Well, now it’s Barkley’s turn to fire back at Green.
Barkley first joked to TMZ that Green has a “face for radio,” and then he went on “The Dan Patrick Show” and delivered a truly savage jab:
"He's the least famous person in the boy band, and he thinks he's a star. And he's not. He's lucky to be in the boy band. He thinks all the girls are screaming for him. No, they're screaming for Justin Timberlake.”

Green is a three-time All-Star and three-time champion. While Barkley never won a ring, he is one of the best players in NBA history. Green surely respects what Chuck was as a basketball player back in the day, but the forward doesn’t really care about Barkley the TNT analyst.
Draymond is currently dealing with a left knee injury. The good news, though, is that Green doesn’t have any structural damage in his knee, per the Warriors.
Green has appeared in 43 games for the Warriors this season. He’s averaging 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6.2 assists while shooting 38.9 percent from the field, 27.9 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free-throw line.
After going to the NBA Finals five straight seasons, the Warriors have been humbled by injuries this season. Golden State traded D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Andrew Wiggins at the trade deadline.
