ORLANDO, Fla. - NBA TNT analyst Charles Barkley isn’t a big fan of the Wizards. In fact, he and fellow analysts Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal often refer to them as the Washington Generals. 

But Barkley is a fan of JaVale McGee, or at least he used to be. In an interview on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” with Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser on Friday, Barkley was asked about McGee. 


“I’m disappointed,” Barkley said. 

“I’m so disappointed in JaVale McGee. He has not gotten better as a player. Now, he’s just doing stupid stuff. When your mom has to tell people you’re not a knucklehead, you probably are a knucklehead.”
