Barkley, for his part, offered his unfiltered take on Durant during the 60 Minutes segment, reiterating his claims that Durant must prove himself as a leader.

"He's very sensitive. Great player. He's part of that generation who think he can't be criticized. He's never looked in the mirror and says 'Man, is that a fair criticism?'" the broadcaster said, adding that it would be an "understatement" to suggest that today's NBA players are "a little more sensitive to criticism" than his generation.

Durant also notably made headlines when reports surfaced last summer, claiming he doubled down on his trade request and informed Nets owner Joe Tsai that he needs to choose between himself or both general manager Sean Marks and coach Steve Nash.

"I call him Mr. Miserable," Barkley said at the time, claiming that Durant would never be satisfied as he was given everything on a "silver platter."

"He was the man in Oklahoma City, they loved him, he owned the entire state. He bolts on them and wins back-to-back championships [with Golden State], and he's still not happy," added the rumored CNN newcomer. "Then he goes to Brooklyn, they give him everything he wants and he's still miserable."
