If the Warriors win does Barkley eat his words?

Wouldn't be the first time he's had to do that. He's been off w/a lot of stuff he says lol

It's about the only thing that fat **** hasn't eaten. He should stick to being a degenerate gambler. He's a terrible analyst. Absolute joke.

You think he would publicly admit he was wrong?

No way. He's too stubborn. He'll find an excuse if anyone calls him out on it.

There are moments in many debates where someone proves themselves to be so grossly ignorant of the facts that it is embarassing.

Will a team who falls in the bottom 5 in 3pt makes ever be able to win an NBA title?

I think it'd be possible only if the proliferation of the 3PT shot becomes so widespread the difference between a Top 5 3PT shooting team and a bottom 5 3PT shooting team is like 2-4 3PTA a game.

Sure, if a team clones KAJ or Shaq they can play inside all day.

its certainly possible however, its unlikely. you used the word ever so i am going to say yes. I mean look at the Griz. I have thought for a long time that some shooters would improve their inside/out game but they really aren't that far away- i'm sure its possible to put a couple guys on that team that really don't shoot the 3 and have them pushed over the top. The other side is that no one is going ignore the 3 point shot in building a team moving forward- it would be stupid too. Guess what i am saying is that it could happen but would take a perfect storm.
