Charles Oakley blasts former and current players on radio show

Former New York Knick forward Charles Oakley went on the radio Wednesday and shot back at Charles Barkley, who has been critical of Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni.

Oakley was on the Jim Rome Show, a syndicated radio program, and took on Barkley, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett, and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kendrick Perkins.

Here are his thoughts on Barkley, according to ESPN.com: "Barkley for his size was a good player but he's a coward though ... he wasn't a leader and wasn't a role model. Now he talks so bad about younger guys, I don't respect that from him. … He's wants to be funny, that whole TNT thing and all that, they're like some clowns on that show."

He went on to call Kevin Garnett "one of the weakest guys to ever play the game," and, of Perkins, "[i]f Kendrick Perkins would play basketball, Oklahoma City would win a championship the next three or four years."
