Charles Barkley: Kentucky could beat Raptors, maybe the Bobcats
Charles Barkley isn’t exactly a college basketball expert, but he’s trying to play one on TV. Sir Charles has been providing studio analysis after games on the CBS/TNT/TruTV network throughout March Madness. After Kentucky beat Baylor 82-70 to win the South Region and advance to the Final Four Sunday, Barkley called them the best team in the country.
“Nobody can beat this team,” Barkley said on CBS. “The Toronto Raptors can’t, the Bobcats maybe. But there’s nobody in this NCAA tournament that can beat this team.”
Chuck may have been exaggerating to prove his point. Why would he choose Toronto when four teams, including Charlotte, have a worse record? I doubt he really believes this team could beat one full of pros, but hey, Charles says a lot of crazy things on air, and that’s why people love him, or love to hate him.
