Barkley’s worried

In case you missed it, here’s what Charles Barkley had to say on TNT about the Lakers before their victory Monday night over the San Antonio Spurs: “I’m concerned about Kobe (Bryant’s) health. Kobe and Pau Gasol are the only Lakers who have played well. Lamar Odom has been inconsistent, Andrew Bynum for some reason cannot play well with Pau Gasol. Ron Artest has not helped them and their bench has been inconsistent. I was watching Michael Wilbon the other day and he was talking about Kevin Garnett, Kobe, guys like that, those guys have actually played more minutes than guys like myself. I played more years than these guys, but these guys have played more minutes than I played. Kobe has played more minutes than I have and he’s played four years less than me. That takes its toll. The Lakers are still the favorite if everybody’s healthy.”
