Charles Barkley has been a big highlight of the playoffs this year because of his interactions with fans of the Golden State Warriors. He has been very supportive of the Warriors throughout the entire season saying that they might have a shot at winning the title once again. Though he may seem appreciating the talent on the Dubs roster, he is not a fan of their new fan base.
Regardless, Chuck is one of the most entertaining sports entertainment personalities at the moment. He contributes his time to TNT’s Inside the NBA alongside another legend Shaquille O’Neal. In one his most recent interactions with the fans of the Bay Area, Charles almost became physical with a few people who threw objects at him.
Charles Barkley @NBAonTNT : “You know the bad thing about all this rain? It’s not raining in San Francisco to clean off those dirty ass streets. It’s a great city. But all that dirtiness & homelessness — y’all gotta clean that off the streets…San Francisco needs a good washing.” pic.twitter.com/Hm8H4Sh7r8— Michael Shellenberger (@ShellenbergerMD) May 25, 2022
Charles Barkley sides with the Dallas Mavericks because of the hate from Warriors fans
During the Western Conference Finals, Charles Barkley spent his time shuttling between San Francisco and Dallas. Fans outside the Chase Center would not greet the legend with respect chanting the phrase, “Chuck, you s**k.” Chuck also fired back at them saying, “You guys are right, and y’all s**k too.” At one point, Charles thought it was humorous until fans crossed the limits.
During his visit at the American Airlines Center, Dallas, the former NBA player arrived at the scene riding a horse. Even though he was visibly struggling to stay on the horse because of his size, he was still confident and determined to pull off a grand entrance. Shaq would hilarious wish for his colleague to fall the horse for kicks. Dallas Mavericks fans lauded at him for the gesture.

Charles Barkley picks Boston Celtics to win the championship
Charles Barkley joined Dan Patrick on the month end to discuss the NBA. He chose the Boston Celtics to win over the Warriors saying, “I like the Celtics, in 6. They are going to be too big for the Warriors. That’s just my personal opinion. I think the depth is probably going to wear them down.” This felt like he was siding with Boston only because of his relationship with the San Francisco crowd.
Patrick confirmed with Barkley if he chose the Celtics over the Dubs because of his experience with their fans. He denied it saying, “No, not at all. I didn’t think the Mavericks could beat the Warriors as I said I just routed for them because I hate the Warriors fans. They used to have great fans in Oakland… now they just got a bunch of jack***es in San Francisco.” He continued to say, “You know how fans are, they want you to say their best player is the greatest and their team is the best.”
