NBA on TNT analyst Charles Barkley does not understand Spanish. He’s got no clue how to speak it, or process it. He even said that he’d learn how to speak Spanish in 2011, and he apparently did not.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Inside the NBA decided to test Chuck on his knowledge of the language. It did not go well for el montículo redondo de rebote. He was able to identify a churro as “like a donut,” and then it was pretty much downhill from there.
You can fast-forward 1:30 in if you want to skip to Barkley flunking his quiz.
