Despite Charles Barkley’s doubts, the Warriors won an NBA title with jump shots, so they made him a T-shirt to rub it in his face.
Charles Barkley doesn’t like jump shots. Last year, he said he thought the Warriors weren’t a title contender because they relied too much on jumpers.
But Golden State won the championship, and got to have its first game of the season broadcast on national television as a result. That meant Barkley was in the building with TNT while the Dubs got their rings. This was not lost on the Warriors.
According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, that shirt “was featured repeatedly on the team’s Jumbotron throughout the game.” It was featured plenty after the game, too.
Don’t doubt the Splash Brothers, Chuck.
