Barkley just said if he had to pick now, he believes the teams facing each other in the finals this year will be the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Yes Barkley picked the Clippers to face the Heat in the finals.

He also said its going to be the Seattle Seahawks vs the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

I'm also a Bronco fan, so heres to Barkley Partyman

Sir Charles is finally giving us some love. He just picked us to represent the West in the Finals against the Heat during the MNF halftime show. Very Happy

Barkley was just on with Chris Berman at MNF halftime and predicted that the Clippers would win the Western Conference and face the Heat in the Finals. I guess he's off the Grizzlies bandwagon.

Actually he was somewhat right about us last season. Somewhat.

He is frankly probably changing his mind cause we have Doc.

Yeah barkley was right last year that we're good in regular season but come playoff time we'll get killed because we don't have set plays.. But now we have docs system that is why he's all in with us. This bring us good vibes now time to go to work

You youngsters are forgetting one thing. Remember the year when Sam blew the eight sec and we lost. The next year we should have been a lock for the PO's. Barkley said that we were his dark horse team to win the west. We of course imploded and didn't make the PO's. He was right last yr.

He say we were the dark horse. He did not pick us to win that time. We would have gone to the final that year if it wasn't that Daniel Ewing play. *shiver*

i HATE hearing all this finals favorites talk. lets just play some damn basketball and see what happens. we havent earned anything.

and until i see some improvement on the court, we'll be lucky to get out of the first round.

one step at a time, yall.

I don't know if he picked us to win it all but he said we were his dark horse favorite. It was the year after the Ewing play year when he said it. There are those who say Raja Bell pushed off. Also Sam's screw up cost the game.

It's true. All this talk and not one game has been played.

Nice to get a bit of love of Barkley though.

i think we need to make one move in order to get to the finals.

if we can bring in a big that can rebound and defend to back up blake and dj, then I can see us going all the way, coming out the west and winning the finals.

Agreed, we have all been calling for it all off season and since we've seen our back up bigs play in the pre season the need is all the more apparent.

I'm with you on this one bro. I hate hearing it too.

Even Lakers homers like Mason & Ireland are picking the Clippers go the Finals, with Mason picking us to win it all....smh!

I rather meaningful games be played first, then predict, than hear all this Pre-Finals talk from " so called" media "Experts"

Sir Charles is giving the Clippers some love??? Amazing. He's been very rough on the Clippers in the past (and probably rightly so), but this is very interesting. Clippers have very high expectations all around. I hope they get it together and really be in the finals and win it all. That would be something!

I don't put much stock in what Chuck says. He'll change his mind weekly throughout the course of the season.

I was surprised that charles said that because he usually

hates the clippers. But I have to give it to him he was on point

last season when he said we would get slaughtered in the playoffs.

Such a scumbag LMAO. Just a week later he flip flopped. What the FU** is all this continuous crap about Blake not getting double teamed LMAO? Very few teams dare guard him 1 on 1.

Charles usually has some points though, just some things are only half truths. Griffin struggles against the bigger guys though like in Memphis.

yup, Blake and DJ will be playing heavy minutes this year because you just can't trust Mullens. This is a huge concern for me, and the front office better be looking into a good option for the bench.

Barkley is a joke. He can't even name which team half the players in the league are on.

Yes, nobody should take his opinions too seriously but for me he is entertaining.

Not surprised that he flip flopped but he is partially correct that our chances lie on how much BG and DJ improve.

Also depends on if we get a good backup big who can play D.

Barkley in a nut shell.

Bulls and Heat 1-2.

Let's see if the media grants those teams excuses and continue to Bash/flip-flop on the LAC. I'll forgive the Miami excuses because they are proven champions with a mini dynasty so far.

haha i love that last year everyone was upset that we didn't get more love from the media and now people are upset that were being named favorites. Theres no winning on CTB, destined to be upset until we win it all. I'm just stoked we have the best product we've ever had out there nowadays.

He is returning a lot earlier than scheduled. Regardless he shouldn't be anywhere near 100%.

Didn't Barkley change his mind at half time vs Golden State and added the caveat of "if Blake and DJ play like bigs" or something like that?

He said that "The Clippers are softer than tissue paper," and that we can't win the title. It's funny how quickly some people change their minds.

http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-cli ... z2kDzfgMU9

It's not surprising. Remember when he changed his finals prediction last season.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1666 ... weep-miami

1st he picked the Spurs to beat the Heat in 6 games and then changed it to Spurs sweep after game 1. How did that series end again?

Apparently Charles Barkley is so indecisive that he has to change his mind every few days. Maybe the people in charge of TNT will change their minds and get rid of him once they realize he has no idea what he's talking about.
