Steve Kerr reacts to Charles Barkley's "girly basketball" dig at the Warriors

At this stage, it appears that no matter what the Golden State Warriors achieve, it'll never be enough to impress Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.

Despite winning the championship in 2015 and securing a record 73 wins in the regular season last year en route to a second straight finals appearance, it's still not good enough in the eyes of Barkley.

After acquiring Kevin Durant in the offseason, the Dubs are now playing the type of dominant basketball that everybody expected and have a league-best record of 17-3 and are the best offensive team in the league averaging 119 points per game.

However, during a double-overtime loss to the Houston Rockets recently, Barkley described the Warriors' basketball as "girly", a comment that was portrayed in some quarters as misguided and offensive to females.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr reacted to the comments by his former colleague on TNT by accepting that he simply just doesn't like his team.

"We didn't talk about it," Kerr said, via the San Jose Mercury News' Anthony Slater. "But it's getting to the point that I feel like if our whole team walked in front of Charles' house, he'd yell, 'Get off my lawn!' That's how I feel about it."

The NBA legend is one of the most popular analysts in the States for his outspoken and humourous nature, but sometimes his pride can get the better of him and that's certainly the case when it comes to the Bay Area franchise.
