Charles Barkley has decided the Atlanta Hawks are done for

Saturday May 23rd, 2015

Charles Barkley thinks the Atlanta Hawks are done for after falling behind 2-0 to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.

The outspoken TNT commentator and NBA legend made his feelings known, taking the whole 'I'll alert the media' thing a bit seriously. After the game concluded, Barkley apparently walked into the press room at Philips arena and told media members that whoever the last one working was should turn out the lights when they leave. 

Barkey-speak translation: nobody will be coming back to Atlanta this season, as Games 3 and 4 take place in Cleveland.

Sure, LeBron James' Game 2 performance was convincing, but ouch.

WOO: LeBron James, Cavs take control with emphatic win over Hawks
