i think he is but is not taken seriously because he is not articulate. He was right about alot of things. He is one of the few analyst that picked the grizzlies over the spurs. i think he has been right about all the series this year.

You can't have a career in the nba like he did and not know the nba game well...He's not the greatest when it comes to predictions though...

Weren't the Jazz supposed to be contenders the last 3 or 4 yrs according to him lol

1 right prediction out of about 10 is not really good. Probably should've replaced looks with sounds.

he was right when he said knicks couldn't beat celtics

He said we couldnt make the playoffs and the nets were going too. He said our pieces are overrated and we couldnt get carmelo. When we had to chance to get him he said we shouldnt do the trade because our pieces somehow isnt overrated anymore. Then he said Carmelo and Amare don't fit together which isnt true. Ive watch all 82 games. He hasnt

Then has the nerve to say were not gonna be good and were not gonna improve the roster knowing we have a shot to decline billups and sign some players or wait till 2012 where there are better quality FA's and im not just talking about the big names.

I can just go on about all the things he's said about us even during the late 90's till now. I may sound like a bitter fan but come on now. This guy has no clue what he's talking about.

Didn't he say the Bulls would be the 1 seed in the East?...

Barkley comments are going to piss a lot of people off and yes he's a bit of a clown. But it's obvious he knows basketball and knows what it takes to win in the NBA. He has been right about a ton this year. Also don't forget he was one of the first people who thought the Bulls were one of the best teams in the East and this was when they were the 3rd or 4th seed.

He predicted a Bobcats-Spurs Finals last year, hes a joke. . .

if you are talking about basketball knowledge, yes, he is very intelligent.

if you are talking about just in general, yes, he has had a very successful and profitable career after basketball.

dumbest thread ever

knowing how many times barkley been wrong

AllBall

He's a jokester, but as with most jokes there is truth behind it. So if you see past it you can see when he brings some insight into things. This is especially true when he analyzes what the game is like for the players.

His predictions are like Turkoglu's FG% this playoffs. Some are bound to hit the mark, but overall, you're gonna be off.

He also said Yao would never score 20 points in a NBA game.

i highly doubt he predicted that. plus he was one of the only one who picked the suns over the spurs in that series.

Gibby
04-26-2011, 12:58 AM
i dont know where some of these facts, but i think some of you guys are mis quoting him.

I dont think he said knicks cant make the playoffs, he just said they cant play defence. i think hes been right more than hes been wrong.

This is the guy who picked the Nets over the Lakers in 7 back when Shaq and Kobe were there and swept the Nets in the finals

"Im a dumbass..."

I really believe he doesn't mean half the things he says out loud. He just does it for entertainment and good fun. And if he does mean it, then read the line above. ;)

1 of 10? says who? i believe he also predicted the bulls,heat,celtics to also win their series and i it looks like that he is right. and what playoff prediction did he get wrong?

sep11ie
04-26-2011, 01:13 AM
Lol, you mean he predicted the top three teams in the East to advance? Damn, I hope he didn't predict 2012 to be the end of the world.

Maybe but Iv'e seen him say those exact same things in my earlier post on TNT. Somehow i never forget idiocy and what he said was idiotic

Nice sample size. 1/10 was definitely high balling.

Ok and then I found this: LINK (http://www.nba.com/video/channels/tnt_overtime/2011/04/24/20110424_inside_1.nba/?ls=iref:nbahpt2). He couldn't understand a normal sentence... it had nothing to do with bball, but I'm not taking a guy with poor english comprehension seriously.

I love Chuck. I think he has great insight into the game and isn't afraid to make bold predictions. Is he alwasy right? No but the man isn't psychic. Nobody is 100% right on predictions.

Smart is a relative term. I don't think Barkley is smart at all, but I would never question his experience.

Baller1
04-26-2011, 01:32 PM
Yeah I actually agree with you. You don't have a hall of fame career and come out knowing nothing about the league.

Yes, he lacks articulacy and says some pretty farfetched things, but he knows what he's talking about for the most part.

Barkley is great. People just get pissed because he rips on their teams... usually with good reason.

Of course he will be wrong a lot of the time. People ask him to predict every single thing and he does so. Think about how many predictions you would get right...

If you say enough things, you bound to be right sometimes.

Barkley is an entertainer as much as an analyst just like he was when he was a player. I've always liked Barkley. Tough player back in the day as well.

This is true. Like Im sure Knick fans don't like him because he disses them quite a bit. But at the end of the day he's basically saying they don't defend or rebound so ultimately that makes them not that good. Thats a hard pill for a fan to swallow but its absolutely true.

He's been around the league long enough to know if you don't defend or rebound AND have an inside presence your not going to succeed so most of the times when he rips a team they're usually not good defenders or just a jump shooting team....

If he wasn't smarter than he sounds... he'd have an IQ under 20. I like him though. He says some good **** most of the time.

i hate him but he's right about a lot of things, he said the knicks didnt stand a chance against celtics, what do you know he was right, he said memphis would beat the spurs, what do you know he was right
if you listened to him during the ncaa tourney he was right about a lot of big east teams....etc etc
the man knows basketball
