It is not just was it is still going on. All of the current players that he played with are the most of the head guys for other franchises now. None of those former teammates or other players will even give him an interview because of his cockiness as a player and his attitude he had. There was a great segment on why he is not in the NBA today on Real Sports on HBO a bunch of weeks ago. I do not remember why exactly he is not in the NBA but part of it was because of his attitude as a player. I think he forced to coach Highschool basketball because no one else will even give him a position with an NBA team not even as an assistant coach.Originally posted by <b>rawse</b>!
Why exactly was Rick Barry so disliked?
This is what I was going to say. While Maurice Lucas was hated by opponents. Rick Barry is basically hated by every player he ever played with and the guys he even worked with while announcing. He may never work in the NBA and it is purely because they don't like him personally. Heck I don't even think his sons like him.Originally posted by <b>rynobot</b>!
hate is what is keeping Rick Barry out of the NBA after his playing days.
