Klay Thompson stopped by TNT's "Inside the NBA" during halftime of the Warriors, Clippers Game Thursday night. The Clippers ended up winning 141-122, ruining the Warrior's debut of their new arena.
During the chat, Charles Barkley gave Thompson -- who is expected to miss most if not all of the season with a torn ACL -- a harsh dose of reality when Thompson said he thinks the Warriors still have a five to six-year championship window.

"Well, number one, I hope you get back soon, but you’re just wrong," Charles Barkley told him. "I was wrong before the game. I said they were going to be the 7-8 seed. They’re not going to make the playoffs because they just can’t score enough. When you look at your team, you say ‘OK, Steph can get me 30. D’Angelo [Russell] can get me 20. Draymond, even though he’s a heck of a player, he’s only going to get me 15.’ That’s not enough in the Western Conference this year.”
Klay argued he believes the younger guys on the team will step up, and the team has enough talent to get them to the NBA Finals again. Do you agree?
