Charles Barkley: Kevin Durant ‘ain't Tough Enough to Play in New York'

Charles Barkley has opinions.

Lots of them in fact.

Many of his opinions/guesses/predictions have been wrong (cc: "The Warriors are a jump-shooting team and a jump-shooting team will never win an NBA championship.")

And his latest bold statement is directly connected to the Warriors. Sports Illustrated's Jimmy Traina has the specifics:

During a joint media event held by CBS and Turner Sports on Tuesday for the upcoming NCAA Tournament, I asked Barkley what he would say to Durant if the Warriors superstar came to him for advice about signing with the Knicks. "You ain't tough enough to play in New York," Barkley answered. "I don't think him or Kyrie are tough enough to play in New York."

Well OK then.

The Knicks clearly disagree with Barkley because they are reportedly hoping to sign both Durant and Kyrie (who grew up just outside New York in West Orange, New Jersey) this summer.

I'm gonna venture to guess that KD doesn't see eye-to-eye with Sir Charles on this one, either.
