Former NBA Player Charles Barkley Calls out Kevin Durant As ‘Abject Failure,’ ‘Mr. Miserable’

Charles Barkley versus Kevin Durant is back for another round.

During an appearance on the Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Barkley ripped Durant for his trade request from the Nets and how he has carried himself throughout his career. The team announced that Durant would be staying with the team going forward on Tuesday.

“He get mad when we say it, he piggyback on the Warriors to win his first two championships, but if you go back and look at his career, as the best player and being a leader that all goes with that, he’s been an abject failure,” Barkley said. “I mean, every time he’s been like the guy who has to be the leader and the best player he has not had success.”

“He just seems like a miserable person,” Barkley continued. “I call him Mr. Miserable, he never gon’ be happy. Everybody giving him everything on a silver platter. He was the man in Oklahoma City, they loved him, he owned the entire state, then he bolts on them and goes to the Warriors, he win back-to-back championships and he’s still not happy. Then he goes to Brooklyn, they give him everything he wants, and he’s still miserable.”

The Barkley KF feud started when Chuck commented that Durant hasn’t won a NBA title as the bus driver, meaning KD hasn’t been the one steering on a championship-winning team.

Since then it’s been a lot of back and forth between the two NBA legends.

It’s safe to say that this feud isn’t over just yet.
