NBA Hall of Famer and TV commentator Charles Barkley has never been shy with his assessments, nor should he be given his occupation. However on Wednesday, while he was promoting a celebrity golf tournament, he took aim some pretty low hanging fruit, the New York Knicks. The franchise's president, Leon Rose is already feeling the heat for the roster he has assembled. Now it is clear that the basketball community's patience with Rose's plan is wearing thin.
He's back! Kyrie Irving apparently has won the staring contest with his team, New York City and the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets are bringing the All-Star guard back as a part-time player for games exclusively played outside of New York City, according to sources as told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. "The unfolding circumstances of Brooklyn's season - including injuries, players lost to health and safety protocols and an inordinate minutes load on their superstar players led the team to this move" according to Wojnarowski.
