The Los Angeles Lakers are set to open their season on Thursday in Portland, and the NBA world will be paying close attention to the new-look Lakers.

But Charles Barkley isna€™t expecting the Lakers to contend in the West this year a€” not even LeBrona€™s addition could change that.

The TNT analyst and NBA Hall of Famer joined The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, and he questioned the direction the Lakers took with blending the Meme Team odd-ball veteran group with their young core of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma.

Barkley said:

a€œWhat kind of team are they? Are they gonna let those young guys play, or are they going to put those old guys out there? Thata€™s why I didna€™t understand because those old guys are not their future. Ball, Kuzma, Brandon Ingram a€” thata€™s their future. So, I dona€™t know what the Lakers are doing. Are they going to try to groom those young guys and go forward with LeBron, or are they going to play those old guys? I think thata€™s going to be the most fascinating thing. I mean, I have no idea what the Lakers are doing. Are they a young team or are they an old team? I think thata€™s what Ia€™m gonna be watching for the most.a€
