Quantcast



Many have doubted the Boston Celtics this year despite their miraculous win streak. 

Among those people is TNT analyst Charles Barkley, who made it clear during last night's broadcast that he does not think much of the team that currently holds the best record in the NBA.

"They're not going to beat the Golden State Warriors, and they are not going to hold the Golden State Warriors to 94 points. I promise you that," said Chuck during the pre-game commentary. This was before the Celtics not only defeated the reigning champs, but also only allowed them to score mere 88 points.




Other disparaging comments hurled at the Celtics by Barkley at halftime included "how in the world has this team won 13 straight games?" And "I'm not sure they can beat Toronto or Washington." Obviously Sir Charles was not paying attention when the Celtics defeated the Raptors on Sunday without Kyrie Irving, but that is another story.

After the game, Barkley was singing a different tune.


"I was wrong, the Celtics played terrific, hats off to the Celtics."

Chuck went onto say that Kyrie Irving is a front runner for MVP this season, in addition to complimenting the play of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.

However, Celtics fans haven't let him off the hook so easily.

Some reminded Charles that he proclaimed Boston's season to be over after Gordon Hayward's injury on opening night:



Others decided to quote Kyrie Irving:



Even the official Boston Celtics Twitter account decided to chime in:




No, most of us don't still love Chuck.

We will see if Barkley has learned his lesson, and if he decides to warm up to the Celtics on future TNT broadcasts.
