Charles Barkley takes aim at Rockets GM, Warriors on 'The Herd'

BY foxsports • November 18, 2015

Charles Barkley didn't hold back on a variety of topics during his time on "The Herd" on Wednesday.

Barkley sounded off on the Houston Rockets' firing of Kevin McHale, who guided the Rockets to the Western Conference finals last season. Sir Charles has never been a huge fan of analytics and took aim at Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who is a big believer in stat-based decisions, and said Morey "screwed over" McHale, adding that the Rockets GM is "one of those analytic geeks."

Barkley has a history with Morey, who took a shot at the TNT analyst last season.

Barkley also weighed in on the Golden State Warriors' perfect start and how teams from previous eras would have defended the high-powered defending champs.

Barkley also touched on Kristaps Porzingis' strong start to his career, calling the New York Knicks rookie "probably the runaway Rookie of the Year."

Barkley also reflected on his early playing days and how out of shape he was.
