Charles Barkley tried to call out Kevin Garnett and it backfired badly

This is vintage KG...

Since retiring from the NBA last summer, Kevin Garnett has his own studio called Area 21 on TNT's Inside the NBA. Although he's no longer playing basketball, he's still the king of trash talk.

So when Charles Barkley tried to call out Garnett for being a "borderline Hall of Famer," KG had the perfect response calling Barkley a "borderline champion."

— KG's Area 21 (@KGArea21) January 7, 2017

Despite playing 16 seasons in the NBA, Barkley never hoisted an NBA Championship during his Hall of Fame career.

Area 21 is also built in with a cuss button. So when Garnett feels like saying something that FCC would deem, inappropriate, he can at least block it out.
