Charles Barkley Gets Brutally Honest About Atlanta Hawks

Charles Barkley got brutally honest about the Atlanta Hawks in his recent comments.

On Thursday night, Atlanta defeated the Detroit Pistons 117-100 behind the supernova play of second-year guard, Trae Young.

Young finished the game with 38 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. By halftime alone he had gone 5-of-7 from 3-point range and 9-of-16 from the field.

Clearly he will be one of the league’s most exciting young players this season.

While the Hawks are no doubt pleased with Young’s remarkable start to the year, one think likely giving them pause is the debut performance of their 2019 draft pick.

During the offseason, Atlanta selected Duke star Cam Reddish with the 10th pick in the draft.

The expectation was that he would a perfect fit for their roster as it is presently constructed.

Unfortunately, things did not quite go according to plan.

Reddish played 21 minutes against Detroit and finished with no made field goals and no made three pointers. He ultimately went 0-5 from the latter and 0-6 from the former.

He ended the game with one point after going 1-of-2 from the free throw line.

After the game, Barkley got brutally honest in his assessment of Reddish.

“I mean, Cam Reddish only had one point,” he said.

“He had one point more than a dead man.”

To be fair, Young also got off to a slow start last year and he turned out to be a tremendous talent.

The Hawks are no doubt hoping that history will repeat itself in that regard.
