Charles Barkley is not a man who will mince his words. Throughout his career, both as a player and an analyst, Barkley has always spoken off the top of his head. That has produced tons of classic moments with him on TV.
Despite that, Barkley definitely keeps his best zingers for real-life confrontation, considering the limitations of what he can say on TV in terms of R-Rated content. Barkley interacting with fans when the cameras aren't rolling means he may actually let loose and let people hear exactly what he is thinking.
During the Inside the NBA live show before the Golden State Warriors Game 1 win over the Dallas Mavericks, Barkley was receiving a lot of hate from the Golden State Warriors faithful in attendance. Barkley didn't take too kindly to one fan talking trash to him and let him know, in no uncertain terms, what he would do if the guy kept trying to get Barkley's attention:
Barkley is absolutely ruthless in this interaction. This was prior to the Warriors' win, so the hate from the fans has amped up in the post-show, especially with Draymond Green also being present for the show. However, everyone knows Barkley makes these comments for fun.
The Warriors' hate for Barkley is justified, considering he picked the Mavericks to win and go to the NBA Finals. However, there is a worrying trend with Barkley predictions and Mavs fans. Chuck also predicted the Utah Jazz and the Phoenix Suns to win over the Mavericks in the first and second rounds.
With how Barkley has been shooting on Mavs predictions, Warriors fans should probably be glad he went with Dallas instead of them. Hopefully, the series spices up in the remaining games after a dominant start to the Western Conference Finals by Golden State on their home court.
