Diamond Leung covers the Golden State Warriors for the Bay Area News Group, and he recently spoke with the crew of Inside The NBA about the team's upcoming series with the New Orleans Pelicans, but Charles Barkley had something else he wanted to discuss first.
Charles Barkley upon hearing my name: "First time I've met somebody named Diamond who wasn’t at a strip joint." I get this quite a bit.— Diamond Leung (@diamond83) April 16, 2015
The reporter seems to have taken this observation in stride, noting that Chuck is not the first person to point out his unusual name.
Barkley should get used to saying the name if he is going to continue covering the NCAA tournament though, as Maryland recently signed blue-chip prospect Diamond Stone to a letter of intent.
