Kevin Garnett Teases Charles Barkley over Never Winning a Title After HOF Joke

Note: Skip ahead to 4:40 for the exchange between the two legendary big men.

During Thursday night’s Inside the NBA broadcast, Charles Barkley jabbed Kevin Garnett over being a "borderline" Hall of Famer.

KG, who retired in September, is obviously not eligible. When he is, in 2021, there's zero doubt he'll get in.

Still, Garnett had to respond to Sir Charles' teasing. The Big Ticket immediately snapped into the trash-talking persona that defined much of his playing career, repeating the word "champion" over and over.

Of course, Barkley never won a title—so Garnett called him a "borderline champion."

That's a knockout shot.
