Charles Barkley didn’t mince his words regarding the superstar of the Milwaukee Bucks and reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Barkley called out Antetokounmpo for his failure to lead the Bucks to the championship.

“He’s got a long way to go as a player. You are playing against 2 good teams and 5 bad teams so your numbers average out. They got beaten 2 years in a row, exactly the same way.

We were talking about the ‘Toronto wall’ two years ago, then they get beat by the ‘Toronto wall’ last year. You notice when they play games, their half-court offense is not good … I would love to see Giannis post-up more,” Barkley said about Antetokounmpo, via Clutchpoints.

Antetokounmpo has led Milwaukee to the top of the East in the regular season over the past couple of years. However, in both cases, he saw his team get eliminated in the playoffs.
