Charles Barkley is known for his eccentric opinions on almost everything.
Most Warriors fans, though, will be disappointed.
Following the Dallas Mavericks’ surprising upset of the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, which meant the Warriors will host Game 1 of the Western Conference finals versus Dallas, Barkley went on an unusual diatribe about San Francisco, comparing it to “hell.”
“We’re going to hell, I mean San Francisco,” Barkley said on “Inside the NBA,” who will be traveling to the Bay Area with the TNT crew to broadcast the Warriors-Mavs series.
“I hate San Francisco,” Barkley continued as the rest of the crew confusingly asked him why. “I just don’t like it. I have to like a city because y’all like it?”
Fellow analyst Shaquille O’Neal then asked Barkley if he planned to visit Alcatraz, and Barkley couldn’t help but get in another zinger.
“Are we going to visit your family? A family reunion?” Barkley said to Shaq.
