Charles Barkley thinks the Suns’ struggles extend to arena nachos

Friday February 5th, 2016

Charles Barkley went on a rant for the ages about the Phoenix Suns during Inside the NBA on Thursday night.

When host Ernie Johnson started to narrate highlights of the Suns’ loss to the Rockets, Barkley went in on his former team, and he just did not let up. He started by ripping them for firing coach Jeff Hornacek, and continued to bash their arena food, drinks, seats and cheerleaders.

The best tidbit may have been about the nachos, which Chuck joked had stale chips and old, cold cheese.


We have to give a big thank you to Shaq and Kenny Smith for egging Barkley on and making this rant last nearly five minutes.

“They keep inviting me to games, I’m like ‘what the hell would I come there for?’” Barkley asks.

This was legendary.
