Charles Barkley routinely joins the Waddle and Silvy show–a Chicago based ESPN affiliate–and today dropped one of his all time best quotes, which is saying a lot. When asked whether the New York Knicks were a legitimate threat this year, he responded with this:
“Listen, you ever see the movie The Perfect Storm?… Ok, I know George Clooney a little bit, and Mark Wahlberg a little bit. Every time I watch that movie, I say ‘I hope ya’ll make it this time,’ and they drown every time. I’ve seen this movie with the New York Knicks in Phoenix. It ends the same way every time.”
Of course he was referring to the certain fate of the Knicks D’Antoni no defense system. Listen to the whole interview here.
