Charles Barkley Thinks Jeremy Lin Will Have More Success Than Tim Tebow
Charles Barkley loves to talk for TV studio shows enough that he’s even found a new venue: the NFL Network. Barkley was a guest on Total Access, where he compared two of the biggest phenoms of the past sports year: Jeremy Lin and Tim Tebow.
Beginning at the 3:40 mark of the video, Barkley diagnoses how Lin and Tebow will perform in their new venues. Lin joined the Houston Rockets as a free agent last week after helping the New York Knicks reach the playoffs, while Tebow was traded to the New York Jets after the Denver Broncos acquired Peyton Manning in the offseason.
Here’s Barkley’s take on what to expect from each next season:
Well, I think Jeremy Lin is a good player. He’s going to have more success. Tebow is a good kid, but he’s honestly going there to be the backup. Jeremy Lin is going there to be the starting point guard, and he did some incredible stuff. I want to see him do well. That’s one of the greatest stories I’ve ever seen, to be honest with you, as long as I’ve been involved with the NBA.
