Charles Barkley Called A TNT Producer A P***y On Live Television, Reggie Miller Couldn't Believe What He Said: "What Is Wrong With You?"

Charles Barkley Called A TNT Producer A P***y On Live Television, Reggie Miller Couldn't Believe What He Said: "What Is Wrong With You?"

NBA fans watch the league for the love of the game and the insane moments it provides but something that sets basketball apart is the unique characters that play the game. Superstars can change the fortunes of teams almost single-handedly and that creates some interesting personalities. Throughout history, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan and the like have entertained fans with the things they say as much as they have with their brilliance on the court. 

Perhaps no one embodies this as well as Charles Barkley, who has become the most beloved media member covering the NBA since he joined TNT. Along with the Inside the NBA crew, Chuck has won numerous Emmy Awards and become even more of a household favorite than he was a player. 

Part of what makes Barkley so appealing is the fact that he seemingly has no qualms about speaking his mind, as seen recently when he roasted John Stockton. Chuck's takes on women in San Antonio and his recurring jokes about Draymond Green's triple-singles have drawn many eyeballs to the show thanks to how brazen they are. So it's no surprise to know that Chuck once said p***y live on the air while talking about one of the show's producers. 

Ernie Johnson: "By the way, Tim Kiely our producer, the absolute best in the business, so thanks to TK."

Charles Barkley: *pretends to cough* "P***y*.

Reggie Miller: "What? What are you doing? What is wrong with you? 

Charles Barkley: "What I do?"

Using words like that on live television is frowned upon but Barkley has hardly ever cared about what people think of him. It's a large part of what makes him so entertaining and the reaction he elicited from Reggie Miller is also quite funny. Chuck is an absolute goldmine and the hope is that he doesn't retire anytime soon, as he has suggested he might do in the coming years
