Charles Barkely is never afraid to share his opinions on anything, which makes him one of the best analysts in all of sports.

That continued Thursday night when he broke down the Los Angeles Lakers while talking about their upcoming chances in the postseason. Barkley took some time to praise Anthony Davis on a strong season, which had Kenny Smith and Shaq butting in to ask questions and offer different arguments about the Lakers and their star center.

Barkley defended his take by saying Davis wasn't the reason the Lakers "suck" this year. Shaq then asked who has been the reason for the struggles, to which Barkley said, "the rest of them."

This was great:
