    Do you think Charles Barkley likes the Celtics & do you care???

    Sir CHARLES called the 80’s Celtics team the ugliest ever. I think Russell and Havlicek were just finishing up & Bird, Mchale & Parrish were just starting.  He’s jealous as the team beat the 76ers and went on to win 3 titles in 1981, 1984 & 1986.  He has never won a ring.  He liked the Lakers against us 2 years ago but now says we’ll beat the Hawks.  Wonder who he’ll pick vs 76ers.  Hopefully we make it but you know the Guru will pick the Magic…even Vegas odds might be 2:1.

    Anyway, I find him as comical as the Laker’s Elf on occasion !
     

    Barkley to Romney: We’re going to beat you like a drum­ !!!

    Russell finished up in '69. Hondo in '78.

    Well, he's certainly quick to point out the greatness of Kevin McHale.  At least you can credit him for that.

    I'm just amazed that you actually pay attention to anything Barkley says.

    I enjoy Barkley. 

    He seems totally unscripted and spontaneous... and doesn't take himself so seriously that he can't backtrack and admit to brain f@rts.

    That in itself is unusual.

    I liked him as a player too.

    in addition to McHale, Barkley was a hudge proponent of DJ getting into the hall of fame--I think DJ's brother actually mentioned that when DJ was inducted--which I thought was a cool moment

    Russ and Bird were 10 years apart

    Barkley missed a title with the Sixers by 2 years and was really only on 2 teams that were bulldozed by the Celts, he was only in the league for ONE Celtics title... that was more of an early 80's rivalry

    He will like them when we get into the finals?  The Heat are his team at the moment.

    Agree with you.  I don't believe that Barkley likes the Celtics.  He doesn't usually bother me though.

    i dont care if barkley likes the celtics....part of his job description now is to not be partial to any team...he is a good analyst and was a heck of a player obviously. i do agree with pud on the fact that charles isnt as full of himself as many analysts are. he can admit a mistake and move on.
