Charles Barkley Responds to Kevin Durant’s Ring-Chasing Comments

TNT analyst Charles Barkley responded to Kevin Durant’s snappy comeback from Barkley’s initial critique saying that the two-time NBA Finals MVP hadn’t been playing as if he was the “bus driver,” but instead of a “Will be a rider.”

“If you ain’t driving the bus, don’t walk around talkin ” bout you a champion,” Barkley previously stated.

Earlier Tuesday, Durant called out Barkley for “ring chasing” in his career, referencing moments of playing with Julius Erving, Moses Malone and Maurice Cheeks in Philadelphia earlier in his career. Durant also posted a picture of the Hall of Famer playing with the Scottie Pippen, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler in Houston near the end of his career.

Ahead of Tuesday’s playoff games are Inside the NBA on TNT, Barkley addressed Durant’s response in attempting to play down the situation.
