Scott Brooks responds to Charles Barkley's prediction Wizards will make playoffs
Brooks values Charles Barkley's trust in Wizards, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Scott Brooks once lived in Charles Barkley's house in 1988 when the two were playing for the Philadelphia 76ers. So he knows everything about Chuck and his famous proclamations.
As you may have heard, his final guarantee was that the Wizards would make the playoffs this season.
The Wizards are certainly hoping for the postseason but have to take a big leap after the 25-47 last year. Even so, Barkley is certain they are tied to the playoffs.
Brooks values his trust.
"I saw that. That was funny. He's the best. I'll tell you something. He's guaranteed a lot and very rarely comes through," Brooks said on Wednesday.
"My job is to take care of my ex-roommate and pay him back. He hasn't charged me rent for two months. Hopefully we can have a good year and make the playoffs. I like our chances. I like the group that does that . " I am with."
Brooks stopped short of his own guarantee, which wasn't surprising. But he sounded hopeful, indicating that he has Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal in his back yard. With two-star players, the playoffs are usually attainable.
Brooks must have seen the video of Barkley saying it or is familiar with its catchphrase for mimicking Barkley to end his answer:
"I hope Charles is right about this guar-an-tea," he joked.
