Pro tip: If you’re going to heckle Charles Barkley, you better be ready for him to fire right back at you.
Barkley is not a man who will mince his words. Throughout his career, both as a player and an analyst, Barkley has always spoken in anyway he felt like and we love him for it.
During the Inside the NBA live show before the Golden State Warriors’ Game 1 win over the Dallas Mavericks, Barkley was receiving a lot of heckling from the fans behind him. After so many insults, Barkley turned around and delivered a killshot.
The heckling came about after Barkley chose the Mavs to win Game 1. He also came on stage and led a Pro-Mavs chant as the fans booed him.
As far as the game goes, it was a great night for Golden State as they held Luka Doncic to a 2022 post-season low of 20 points and just 2 points in the second half as they ran away with a 112-87 victory.
Seven Golden State players — including all five starters — scored in double figures. Stephen Curry led the way with 21 points and a shocking 12 rebounds on the night.
