Basketball Hall of Famer and Turner Sports analyst Charles Barkley said he prefers that players not bring their kids to post-game press conferences, according to USA Today.

While several high-profile players have had their children sit beside them while answering questions, the appearance of Golden State Warrior star Stephen Curry's daughter, Riley, led some media members to discuss the practice.

Barkley, an outspoken commentator on topics surrounding the NBA, argued that reporters are trying to get work done.

"Reporters are there trying to do their job," Barkley said, according to USA Today. "I don’t think it’s a big deal but I would prefer [players] not bring their kids, reporters are trying to do their job."

Others, including Stephen's father, Dell, said he didn't object to Riley being present at Stephen's conferences.
