This season, again, Barkley thinks no Spur should be on the All-Star team. And after his TNT peers kidded him about that — and he continued to try to defend his opinion —Barkley repeated what he said last year.
Barkley worked the game Monday in Philly where he once played, and he received a standing ovation when the Sixers aired a video tribute to him. And during the telecast he tried to explain why he didn’t think even one Spur deserved a spot: He just wants to give some of the young guys a turn.
He mostly talked about Parker, and how he preferred the Clippers’ backup, Jamal Crawford. Crawford has had an outstanding season, and he’s a favorite to be the sixth-man of the year. So an argument can be made, and the Clippers are making it. The team has sent a fact sheet to coaches highlighting what Crawford has done.
Barkley thinks Golden State’s David Lee and both Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph of Memphis should be All-Stars instead of Duncan.
