Video: Charles Barkley Thinks Lakers Should Shut Down Kobe Bryant


After news broke that Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant fractured his lateral tibial plateau of his left knee and will miss six weeks, several “experts” weighed in on whether or not he should come back this season.

When he returned from his torn Achilles, the Lakers went 2-4 in the six games he started as it was clear that he was continuing to shake off the rust from missing eight months of game action. Bryant had issues adjusting to the slightly up-tempo Lakers offense as the ball stuck when he was on the court and had issues hanging onto the ball, averaging 5.7 turnovers per game.

One of the Lakers biggest critics, Charles Barkley of Inside the NBA on TNT, weighed in on whether or not Bryant should play again this season on the heals of another significant injury. It was Barkley who recently said the Lakers “will stink” with our without the 35-year-old veteran guard and voiced his opinion that he shouldn’t play again this season.

While Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal believe the five-time champion will be back in six weeks, Barkley took things a step further, even referring to Bryant as a “garden snake”.
