On Wednesday evening, Hall of Famer Charles Barkley took his art of trash talking to the next level. When the “Inside the NBA” team filmed a live show in front of the Chase Center prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and the Mavericks.
Barkley who has a history of going at with fans in the past such as the San Antonio Spurs for example, elected to pick the Dallas Mavericks to win this series. Of course the Warriors fans weren’t happy to hear his selection. Warriors fans heckled the 1993 MVP, about never winning a championship in his career.
“If you don’t leave me alone, I’m going to come to your house and f—k your mama,” Barkley said
Other clips that were posted online feature Barkley going back and forth with the fans. “Chuck you suck” chant during the live broadcast.”
“Hey, you’re right. And y’all suck too!” Barkley said.
Later on during a segment that featured Warriors forward Draymond Green, Chuck said, “I don’t dislike the area, I hate the area.” and Green responded, “The area hates you!”‘
The Golden State Warriors would go on to beat the Dallas Mavericks in game one of the Western Conference Finals 112-87. Game two is on Friday on TNT at 9 pm EST.
