Charles Barkley on Westbrook behavior: Thunder's 'got to handle this'

Barkley: "I don't think he knows he's wrong or he wouldn't be acting like that. Listen, Maurice Cheeks and my man Scott Brooks got to handle this. This has been going on for years now. But now they're an elite team. It's championship or bust. And we said the same (thing), this is like the third year in a row we've said that.

"Just go back a couple years ago they were getting on his case. Then last year he played all right, then he shot too much in the Finals. And now we're in the middle of the season and at some point Scott and Maurice got to go, "Hey dude, you either got to grow up or we can't win a championship. Because.. when you have blowups like this, they only show up under pressure in big situations, and this is as regular-season game. Everybody's kind of chillin' getting ready for the All-Star break. This thing is going to show it's ugly head deep in the playoffs if they don't .. they've got to handle this."
