If there is one personality in the NBA world that doesn't pick his words or hold back from expressing what he feels, it's most definitely NBA legend and TNT analyst Charles Barkley. A few Warriors fans had to learn that the hard way yesterday.
"Let's go Mavs!"
Like every year, TNT has the coverage of the Western Conference Finals, and the NBA On TNT panel is traveling on the road to cover the games. The Warriors blew out the Mavs in Game 1, and the fans in San Francisco got rowdy in front of the arena.
Ernie, Kenny, Shaq, and Charles were doing a live show in front of the arena next to all the fans, and the atmosphere was lively as always in those types of situations. It, of course, didn't help that the provocative Charles couldn't stop voicing his support and pick of Dallas to win this series.
The fans didn't appreciate it, and they let him know about it, screaming that the legendary power forward sucks. On air, Barkley would give them a clean response.
But when the cameras were off in the commercial break, Barkley decided to give the heckling fans a serious warning.
"Yall better leave me alone! Or I'm going to come to your house and fu*k your mama," Barkley clapped back at the heckling Warriors fans.
Charles's reactions got a huge laugh from the Warriors crowd, but it was apparent that Barkley was annoyed with the constant taunting from the crowd behind him.
Warriors fans don't like Charles from his playing days, as he had some of his best career performances against their team. Backing the Mavericks only added more fuel to the fire of the rivalry between Warriors nation and Charles Barkley. But you have to be able to take it, as well as you dish it when going at the legendary "Chuckster."
