Charles Barkley didn't want Kevin Durant to join the Golden State Warriors and isn't sure he will change anything.

In NBA Hall Of Fame former power forward Barkley's mind, the Warriors are still a flawed team.

Barkley said the Warriors remain too reliant on jump shots and lack an inside presence, just as they did when they lost to Cleveland in the finals after winning a record 73 games during the regular season.

The Warriors signed Durant in the off-season and are favoured to regain the title they won in 2015.

Barkley, who played for Philadelphia, Phoenix and Houston, says if the Warriors do win, it won't mean as much to Durant as a title in Oklahoma City would have meant.

He also says Durant should stop speaking negatively about the Thunder, saying: "He left, he's happy, shut up."
