Charles Barkley fears that there may be "shenanigans" in the Draft Lottery on May 30 that would deliver Anthony Davis to the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are currently in the #7 spot in the lottery with a 4.3% chance of getting the overall #1 pick.
"I'm going to be very leery if Anthony Davis ends up in Brooklyn," Barkley told ESPN 1000 in Chicago. "You know, I'm going to be very leery because I know the NBA has a lot riding on that new arena, especially if Deron Williams leaves New Jersey. They didn't get Dwight Howard. I'm going to be very leery if New Jersey gets that number one pick."
Barkley admits he is a conspiracy theorist.
