Charles Barkley is one of the most entertaining figures in all of sports entertainment. His segments with the Inside the NBA crew on TNT are iconic and regularly go viral for one of the longest-running basketball shows in the league's history. A lot of those years are filled with giggles from the crew, and some of the greatest verbal smackdowns handed out by Barkley.
The entertainer within Barkley is usually always engaged, which makes interactions with him in public a bit of a mixed bag. However, the older Chuck has gotten, his interactions off the court have been increasingly funnier.
A perfect example would be Barkley meeting a girl who wanted him to take a picture of her before Barkley said he wanted to be in the camera and make a TikTok with the lady.
Barkley struggled to aim the camera correctly on his first try and seemed to have given up quite quickly on taking that woman's video. Charles must have heard about the trends on TikTok and how it is one of the fastest-growing social media websites from someone on his team and was naturally curious if the video that woman asked him to take was for a TikTok.
Sir Charles doesn't have a TikTok account, but there are a plethora of basketball highlights on the platform, including some of Barkley. His best contribution to the platform may be the basketball highlights during his prime, something he can check out while familiarizing himself with the app.
The growth of TikTok is incredible, and it seems it has reached almost universal acclaim across people. For brands and major corporate entities, TikTok is one of the best ways to connect and communicate with the audience. So, a businessman like Barkley has to be aware of what the app can do for him and other businessmen.
What Barkley can do on TikTok is not what most use it for. For Barkley, if he continues to use TikTok, he might realize it's not for him.
