Charles Barkley is not a fan of the Atlanta Hawks. He made that clear on Thursday night when he was serving as a commentator during the Hawks-Heat game on TNT. What does he believe is the problem with Atlanta? They’re not hood enough.
“I think the Atlanta Hawks got too many nice guys, that’s one of their bigger problems,” Barkley said. “They got some good players, but some of their guys just really nice guys. You’ve got to have some hood in you. You’ve got to have some hood in you to be a great player.”
The comment sure is funny, but like many things Barkley says, it’s offensive, not to mention inaccurate. Last I checked, Dirk wasn’t hood but he won a championship last year. Tim Duncan has won four rings and I don’t think people consider him hood. How bout Dwyane Wade? He’s a great player, but I don’t think he’s hood either.
