One of the NBA greats, Charles Barkley, joined Colin Cowherd on TV show The Heard. Barkley was asked about the teams’ second-best players and their impact on the results in the playoffs.

“The key [for winning or losing championship] is gonna be Anthony Davis. LeBron is gonna do his thing. The key to me is Anthony Davis,” he said.

“The Clippers don’t have a match up for him, but they have two match ups for LeBron – Paul George and Kawhi. They [The Clippers] don’t have anybody to guard Anthony Davis. If the Lakers will win the championship it will be because of Anthony Davis,” Barkley summed up his argument.
