NBA analyst Charles Barkley had some disparaging comments for the league during his appearance on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday.
“The NBA is watered down,” Barkley said. “The NBA is the worst I’ve ever seen it.”
“For him to be that first player to get that unanimously, I think it tells you how watered-down our league is,” McGrady said on ESPN’s The Jump. “Seriously. Because think of when M.J. played, Shaq, I mean those guys really played against top-notch competition, more superstars I think on more teams ... but it’s well-deserved.”
Barkley, who played in the NBA for 16 seasons, was an 11-time All-Star and the league’s MVP in 1993.
