"Credit for jumping off the Titanic before it sunk": Charles Barkley ridicules Warriors by praising Bob Myers for leaving team

ESPN's Bob Myers and TNT's Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley continued his feud with the Golden State Warriors on Thursday during the historic crossover between ESPN and TNT. Barkley took a shot at the Warriors by praising their former general manager and current ESPN analyst Bob Myers for leaving the team.

The two sports networks broke the internet with their crossover for the coverage of the 2023 NBA In-Season Tournament semi-finals. The TNT crew of Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson interacted and trash-talked ESPN's Myers, Stephen A. Smith, Malika Andrews and Adrian Wojnarowski.

In the video below, "The Round Mound of Rebound" decided to give credit to Myers for leaving the Warriors before their disastrous campaign this season. Golden State is struggling, with Barkley comparing it to Titanic's sinking:

"I wanna give you credit for jumping off the Titanic before it sunk," Barkley said.

Myers replied:

"I have friends over there."

Barkley was not finished and decided to double down:

"Yeah, you're gonna see them soon."

Charles Barkley's feud with the Golden State Warriors has been ongoing for years. Barkley has never been a fan of the Warriors' offense even though they have won four NBA championships since 2014. It's great banter, as Barkley often gets under the skin of many Warriors fans.

Bob Myers, who orchestrated Golden State's dynasty, left the franchise this summer. Many thought that he'd sign with another team, but he joined ESPN as an analyst instead.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. took over his position and made some very risky moves in the offseason. It has not paid off for the Warriors, as they are 11th in the Western Conference with a 10-11 record.

Charles Barkley opened the historic crossover between TNT and ESPN by roasting Stephen A. Smith. Barkley hilariously warned Smith that whatever he's doing on his shows won't be entertained under his watch:

"If you come over here with all that loud a** talking," Barkley said. "Hey, this ain't 'First Take,' this gonna be the first to a** whooping you take."

The two networks decided to collaborate on Thursday night to cover the 2023 NBA In-Season Tournament semi-finals held in Las Vegas.

It was a treat for fans in attendance and those watching at home to see the most entertaining sports analysts together on the same show.
