Via Yahoo Sports:  

I’m going out on a limb right now, I’m riding and dying with the Philadelphia 76ers. I know it’s going to be a great battle between them and the Milwaukee Bucks all year. But I love Philadelphia. I love Al Horford, Josh Richardson. Milwaukee losing [Malcolm] Brogdon, I think that’s a big deal. But I think it’s a two-team race in the Eastern Conference between the 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks. I can’t wait until they play each other head to head.

When pressed for a guarantee, Barkley didn’t hesitate.

I guarantee you the Philadelphia 76ers are going to win the Eastern Conference.

Well now we know they’re not going to win the East. 

Never give out guarantees in sports. It always backfires. 

Unless you’re Joe Namath.
