Charles Barkley has blasted Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green a few times recently, and on Friday Green hit back.

Speaking with local media, he said Barkley isn’t “smart enough and not qualified” to talk basketball with him. He also said, “Barkley should stop before I take his job.”

Here’s the full exchange between Green and reporters, courtesy of 95.7 The Game.

The petty is real around the NBA, folks. Though, these guys have a history, and Green has voiced his strong opinion of Barkley in the past.

Most recently, Barkley tore into Green for getting ejected in the second quarter of a Feb. 28 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

To be fair, Green hasn’t exactly been on top of his game this year for the Warriors, who have tanked without Stephen Curry (who returned Thursday) and Klay Thompson. But he does have a stellar resume overall, with three titles under his belt and a Defensive Player of the Year award, and is still one of the best defenders in the Association.
