Poor Chuck. Anytime he gets in any sort of basketball argument he KNOWS there’s always the potential of the championship rings joke coming out. Just like the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead and J. Cole went platinum with no features, “Charles Barkley never won a ring” could pop up at any given moment.
On TNT’s legendary Inside The NBA, Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley argued about Lebron James‘ leadership tactics before the start of Thursday’s televised game between the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder.
O’Neal believed James should’ve kept things in house rather than complain about the state of the club to reporters and the big man pointed out it takes more than just a Big Three to win a title.
“They just won a championship!” Barkley yelled back. That began quite the back-and-forth.
“You know nothing about going back-to-back,” O’Neal calmly responded.

Barkley immediately went silent. Even almost 20 years after his retirement he still has no comeback to the ringless joke. Poor guy.
