Charles Barkley Sounds Off on Rockets GM Daryl Morey and NBA Analytics

NBA Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley went on a passionate rant about folks who take analytics too seriously, and he called all of them out. This started with Rockets GM Daryl Morey taking a shot at Chuck on Twitter, while Ernie and the boys thought it was more of a joke, Barkley took offense to it.

The former NBA MVP made some solid points though. A lot of the members of the media and front offices are made up of people who have never ever played the game of basketball, and some of these folks are very quick to judge players decisions, performances and words by pointing out things such as advanced statistics.

Barkley fired back at Morey and weighed in on analytics.
