Houston Rockets, he wouldn’t have counted in his record book. “Data-reactid =” 18 “> He told Lowe that if he had won a title by teaming up with Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler at the Houston Rockets, he would not have counted him in his record book.
” It does not count “
“I wouldn’t even consider it a championship,” said Barkley. “I’m not going to lie. Me and Karl Malone. If he won a championship with the Lakers, that doesn’t count. It doesn’t count. ”

“I’ll never be happy with that,” said Barkley of Durant’s decision to leave Oklahoma City. “When I was going to ask to be traded, I didn’t say I wanted to play in Chicago, Boston or the Lakers. I just wanted to go to a team where I had a chance to participate. “
Barkleys’s situation was not the same as Durant’s
