And my logic is such that he still keeps bringing up, even though the topic was discussed ad nauseum on several different occasions.
Chuck can't help himself.
He's hating in the sense that he always needs to downgrade Steve's performance in some way. Even when Steve epitomizes unselfishness by distributing 21 assists in a lop-sided victory against the best team in the East, old Chuckster is hating on him about not deserving an award that other's gave to him.
Did you even watch the show tonight? Where the hell you getting the idea Chuck was hating?
Chuck was talking about this year and how if it goes down to Dirk and Nash, whoever's team does better should win it, it was only after Kenny and Ernie bought up "voters may not vote for Nash simply because he has won two straight already" did Barkley go on his "voters are full of it" rant. It was only after Kenny and Ernie mentioned the years before did Barkley did a run down of what he thought.
Even then, in no way was he hating on Nash or taking credit away. He said he FELT Dirk should have won it last year (with Nash at second). Again, he was praising Nash the whole time.
If you take that as "Barkley hating on Nash". You are either Steve Nash's brother or you're obsessed with the guy.
This thread is STUPID. Barkley made NO bad comment about Nash, nothing but praise, but just because he said "I feel Dirk should have been MVP last year", that makes him hating on Nash?
