Charles Barkley doesnt like that Kevin Durant is jumping on the Golden State Warriors gravy train to win a title and said he doesnt feel like a bum because he didnt cheat his way to one in his career. Wholesale Shoes Black Friday .Durant chose to sign a two-year deal with the Warriors this week after nine seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder that netted him seven All-Star Games, one MVP and one NBA Finals appearance but no championship.I was disappointed. I was disappointed like I was disappointed when LeBron went to Miami, Barkley said on ESPN Radios Mike & Mike on Wednesday. Kevin is a terrific player. Hes a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team and hes gonna kind of gravy train on a terrific Warriors team. Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State.Barkley played 16 seasons in his Hall of Fame career with the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets. He was an All-Star 11 times but made the Finals only once, in his 1992-93 MVP season, losing to Michael Jordans Chicago Bulls in six games.Barkley headlines a long list of NBA greats who have never won a championship -- players such as Elgin Baylor, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Patrick Ewing, Dominique Wilkins, George Gervin, Allen Iverson and Reggie Miller. Barkley, who is now a TNT analyst, said he doesnt think it makes them lesser players.We develop this thing where you keep telling these guys, Hey man, if you dont win a championship, youre a bum. I dont feel like a bum, he said. Im pretty sure Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone and John Stockton -- we think were pretty damn good. We could have played with some of those other guys and kind of cheated our way to a championship. But there is this thing that started with this new generation where these guys feel so much pressure. Everybody wants to win.Im a big Chris Paul fan. Im sure Chris Paul wants to win a championship. And he could, when his contract is up, go join one of these superteams and get a championship. But it wont be the same as leading your team where youre the bus driver instead of the bus rider.Barkley did demand to be traded twice in his career in attempts to improve his chances to win a title, leading to moves from the 76ers to the Suns in 1992 and from the Suns to the Rockets in 1996. Houston won back-to-back NBA titles before his arrival, and Barkley spoke openly of his desire to play with the Rockets big stars before he was traded to Houston.The best thing about it would be getting the chance to play with Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. We would be very formidable, Barkley said in July 1996, a month before he was dealt.Durant will join two-time MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, a core that won 73 games in the regular season but lost in the NBA Finals to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The team Durant leaves, the Thunder, had the Warriors on the ropes in the Western Conference finals, leading 3-1 before dropping the last three games.The Thunder are now left wondering if they are good enough to win it all and whether they should consider trading superstar Russell Westbrook before he can leave as a free agent after next season.Barkley doesnt like this whole process.Were gonna have guys on bad teams making $25 million a year. And were going to have three or four competitive teams, Barkley said. Thats the negative of LeBron going to Miami, KD going to Golden State.First of all, the fans love their teams, they love sports. But theyre not going to go see Sacramento, Indiana, Miami, these bad teams where guys are making 10, 20, 30 million dollars a year and they dont have a chance to compete. I mean, thats where were going. Were going to kill the golden goose. Everybodys going to be making a lot of money, but other than five teams were going to be putting a shabby product out there. Thats whats going to kill the NBA in the next few years in my opinion. Fake Shoes Black Friday . Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in each victory.

COLLEGE FOOTBALLRALEIGH, N.C. -- The NCAAs decision to pull seven championships out of North Carolina ratchets up the pressure on this college sports-crazy state to repeal its law on bathroom use by transgender people.Unlike the recent one-time cancellations by the NBA and various rock stars, the move by college sports governing body could make moderate and conservative voters question whether the price tag for the law has finally become too high.Economic development officials said the effect of the NCAAs action goes well beyond the projected $20 million in lost revenue from the cancellation of the 2016-17 basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, lacrosse and golf events.The law passed in March requires transgender people to use restrooms in schools and state government buildings that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate.
