Charles Oakley was one of the toughest and more colorful players to ever grace the NBA, retired since 2004, Oakley has never been one to not share his opinion.  Recently during an interview with Jim Rome, Oakley once again shared his thoughts on a number of topics including Charles Barkley and Kevin Garnett.

Oak on Kevin Garnett

”He is a good player, but he’s a complementary player,” Oakley said about Garnett. “He went to a Paul Pierce team and won a championship....He’s not real tough,” Oakley said. “I wouldn’t put him in the top 10 tough guys, so you do the math. If you’re a real tough guy, you should be in the top five, top 10, but if you ain’t tough, it don’t count after 11.”

“Barkley, for his size, was a good player but he’s a coward,” Oakley continued. “He was a good player for his size, but he wasn’t a leader and wasn’t a role model.....Now he talks so bad about younger guys. I don’t respect that from him. He’s a fraud. He can criticize all the younger kids and if he got something to say, call them and talk to them before you just blast them. He’s wants to be funny, that whole TNT thing and all that, they’re like some clowns on that show”
