Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith ride on scooters for Georgia State coach

Saturday March 21st, 2015

The legend of Ron Hunter keeps on growing.

The Georgia State coach has become one of the early surprise stars of the NCAA tournament, falling off his office-style chair after seeing his son hit a game-winning three-pointer against Baylor on Thursday. Hunter was only in the chair, of course, because he tore his Achilles tendon while celebrating the Panthers' Sun Belt tournament title last weekend.

During TNT's broadcast of the tournament on Saturday, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith wanted to "get a feel" for the steerable knee walkers, as Greg Gumbel explained.

We'll see what Hunter has in store for Saturday's game against Xavier -- he's already said his beloved chair isn't going anywhere.
