After Barkley’s career in the NBA he became a panelist on Inside the NBA where he gathers with other ex-NBA players to discuss statistics, teams and players.
He recently came under fire on Thursday alongside Shaquille O’Neal for their comments towards Breonna Taylor’s death not being similar to George Floyd’s or Ahmaud Arbery’s.
Barkley said on live TV: “I don’t think this one was like George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery and things like that.
“I feel sad that this young lady lost her life. I think this one was – the no-knock warrant is something we need to get rid of … across the board.
“But I am worried to lump all these situations in together.”
He continued: “And I just feel bad that the young lady lost her life. But we do have to take into account that her boyfriend shot at the cops and shot a cop.
“So like I say, even though I am really sorry she lost her life, I just don’t think we can put this in the same situation as George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery.”
