Kevin Durant is once again annoyed with Charles Barkley.

Barkley has criticized Durant on numerous occasions over the years, and the Phoenix Suns star can never seem to ignore it. The latest jab from Barkley came during an interview with “60 Minutes” that aired on Sunday night. Barkley was asked for his thoughts on Durant, and the Hall of Famer said K.D. is a “great player” but “very sensitive.”


Ironically, Durant does not think Barkley’s criticism for not being able to take criticism is a fair criticism. Durant tweeted that he will never respect Chuck’s opinion.


As always, fans then began calling Durant out for proving Barkley’s point. K.D. admitted that he is bothered by former NBA players who he perceives are “jealous of the generations that come after them.”


Barkley recently said that Durant needs to win a championship as the clear-cut best player on a team in order to cement his legacy. Durant had plenty to say about that, too.

Though he claims he does not feel he has to prove anything to Barkley or any other NBA legend, Durant has never been able to sit quietly while being criticized.
