Charles Barkley is never afraid to speak his mind.

Earlier this week, Barkley was a guest on ESPN and shared his views on various NBA topics, including the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers. As usual, Barkley didn’t hold back – he said the Lakers are “gone” and “they stink”.

The good news for Laker fans is that Barkley is usually wrong – in most cases, the complete opposite happens – so feel free to keep sending shots our way, Chuck!
