Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neil draw backlash for pushing back on Breonna Taylor outrage

Many prominent figures in the sports world, including Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, have voiced their outrage against the decision to not not charge Louisville police officers for the killing of Breonna Taylor.

The “Inside the NBA” crew on TNT offered a different reaction on Thursday, led by Charles Barkley.

Before Thursday’s game between the Lakers and Denver Nuggets, Barkley said that Taylor’s case shouldn’t be “lumped” in with the killings of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. He pointed to Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, firing on the plainclothes Louisville police officers that were executing a no-knock search warrant as a reason why.
