NBA legend Charles Barkley takes aim at Kevin Durant’s “sensitive” nature saying “he’s part of that generation who think he can’t be criticized”

Nobody knows what Barkley has in his mind for Kevin Durant who seems to love to pull the PF’s leg in all possible ways. In an interview on Sunday night, the former Sun star dropped a major bombshell regarding KD.

March Madness: Charles Barkley calls college basketball 'a travesty and disgrace' -

With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan, and Kevin Garnett, CB is one of just six players to have more than 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 4,000 assists in a career.

The Rebound Round Mound played 16 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for three different teams and was the driving force behind a Phoenix Suns team that finished with the best record in the league and advanced to the NBA Finals in 1993.

What did Barkley say about Kevin Durant?

The narrative started when Sir Charles made an appearance on a 60 Minutes episode. Barkley was questioned about several NBA players on that show, including Kevin, and the 60-year-old man described Durant as a sensitive player who abhors criticism of him when asked about Durant.

“He’s very sensitive. Great player. He’s part of that generation who thinks he can’t be criticized. He’s never looked in the mirror and said, Man, was that a fair criticism?”

John Wertheimgrasped Barkley’s argument and questioned whether the superstar thought that current players in NBA are more sensitive to criticism than players he had previously played with.

In response Barkley gave a clever reply, “That would be (an) understatement.”

The former basketball star for Auburn has made remarks about Kevin before. Barkley has frequently questioned the power forward’s ability, pointing out that without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and coach Steve Kerr, Durant has never won a championship.

If we go back to 2022, we can see CB’s shocking remark about Durant, in which the former star described the 34-year-old as a miserable person.

“He seems like a miserable person, man. I call him Mr. Miserable, he’s never going to be happy. Everybody’s given him everything on a silver platter,” Barkley said.

The 11-time NBA all-star singled out Kevin’s talent in that statement and declared his career a failure.

“But if you go back and look at his career, as the best player and being the leader that all goes with that, he’s been an abject failure,” he said.
