Charles Barkley just will not stop picking on the weight of San Antonio women, which probably makes some Mavericks fans smile. On Monday night, he made proud Dallas fans even happier.
Barkley, the former Rockets, Suns and 76ers forward and famous panelist on TNT’s Inside the NBA crew, has launched playful verbal jabs at San Antonio fans on numerous occasions this season. As the Spurs continue to win, Barkley and the crew, that includes Ernie Johnson Jr., Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neil has had more opportunities to discuss San Antonio. That has given Barkley more time to make light of the heft of San Antonio’s ladies.
With the Spurs and Thunder playing the Western Conference Finals in San Antonio, the spotlight Monday was on the Alamo City again. With TNT’s cameras canvassing the crowd, one woman in a “Barkley Don’t Know” T-shirt, became the focus.
“That woman ain’t from here,” Barkley yelled over the crowd noise. “They flew here in from Dallas. I guarantee you. Those girls are not from San Antonio. They flew them in from Houston and Dallas.”
According to Busted Coverage, Barkley is incorrect, and lucky he didn’t pick on her, not that he would have an argument. The woman in the shot is the girlfriend of Spurs center Tim Duncan. Vanessa Macias is an in-game host for the San Antonio Missions baseball team and appeared in the Amazing Race.
