Doug Gottlieb and Charles Barkley have some nerve.
Between the two basketball analysts, they have zero NBA titles, three fewer than Warriors forward Draymond Green. Yet they continue to take shots at the three--time NBA champ.
In response to Green's comments about Barkley on Friday, Gottlieb tweeted this:
If Draymond was half the player Barkley was, the Warriors would have won another title last year— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) March 6, 2020
Here's the problem, Doug. If Barkley were half the player everyone thinks he was, he would have won more than zero NBA titles.
And if Gottlieb was as good of a basketball player as he thinks he was, he would have played in the NBA. But he didn't. He went undrafted in 2000.
But you know, keep putting down a guy that went from second-round draft pick to earning over $180 million in NBA contracts. Seems like a good plan, Doug.
Earlier on Friday, Green spoke to the media in San Francisco and responded to Barkley, who yet again criticized the three-time All-Star last week.
"Barkley should stop (talking about me) before I go take his job, though," Green told reporters. "Because I can do that well, too. He needs that job so he should stop talking (about) me. I have a tendency to end people, so he should stop before I take his job. If he keeps talking, I'll take it soon. Sooner than he thinks. So he probably should be quiet.
"He also can't talk basketball with me. Not smart enough, not qualified, no rings -- can't sit at this table."

In case Gottlieb and Barkley forgot, Green has three rings. Not zero. Three. And he earned them.
