(CBS) The real battle in San Antonio last night didn’t take place on the basketball court, where the Spurs demolished the Thunder to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals. It took place on the set of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” postgame show, as Charles Barkley fired verbal shots at Spurs fans for the umpteenth time.
A quick refresher: Before the series began, Barkley made some off-color-but-oh-so-Barkley-like jokes about the size of women in San Antonio.
“That’s a gold mine for Weight Watchers,” he quipped.
Upon taking criticism, including from obesity awareness groups, Barkley refused to apologize, telling people to turn off the TV if they didn’t like it.
Not surprisingly, Barkley was still hearing it from Spurs fans last night and over the past couple days in San Antonio. In typical Barkley fashion, he fired back on air.
Check out the video below of what he had to say.
