Over the past few months, Charles Barkley and Draymond Green have been taking shots at one another, and today, their feud came up on the latest episode of John Calipari’s Facebook Live series, “Coffee with Cal.”
When host Jordan Cornette asked Barkley what he made of Green’s latest comments that Barkley was “jealous” of his success in the league and all the money he’s made, Barkley said the Golden State Warriors forward is “a good little player,” but like the worst member of a boy band, confuses his fame with the success of others (Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Steph Curry).
“Well, Jordan, you’ve known me for a long time. The one thing is I’m not jealous of anybody. I like messing with him. I like him. I think he’s a good player. I like his personality, but I get annoyed with these guys who were born into money and think they’re successful. I told you, he’s like the worst member of the boy band who doesn’t realize he’s standing next to Justin Timberlake. When the girls are throwing panties at his head, he’s going to get hit by some drive-by panties but they’re really throwing panties at Justin Timberlake.”
“Draymond’s a good little player, but without Kevin Durant, Klay [Thompson], and Steph [Curry], he’s just a good little player. And he’s a good role player and I like him too, but it annoys me when these guys start talking about, well they won something. Yeah. There are some guys who won something playing with Magic [Johnson] and [Larry] Bird. But they don’t go around talking about how great a player they are, they’re just like, ‘Man, I was lucky to play with Bird and Magic and those guys.'”
“He’s the worst member of the boy band who doesn’t realize he’s standing next to Timberlake. When the girls are throwing panties at his head, he’s going to get hit by some drive-by panties, but they’re really meant for Timberlake.”
