Before the San Antonio Spurs and the Cleveland Cavaliers tipped-off on TNT on Thursday Night, Charles Barkley stated something that got the attention of many.

During the pre-game show ‘Inside the NBA’, TNT Analyst Kenny Smith turned to Barkley and asked him to restate a comment he made earlier about Spurs’ star Kawhi Leonard. Here is what he had to say.

Though you can hear the gasps from the panel, Barkley stuck by his words. In the video Barkley is asked if he would take Leonard over Stephen Curry and LeBron James.

Many do not agree with what the Chuckster has to say at times but he does make a good point. Curry is the best offensive player in the league. James’ fans probably did not like the statement he said about their star stating ‘he was the best player over the last ten years or more’.

He finalized his opinion claiming Leonard is the best basketball player in the world, right now.
