The NBA on TNT social accounts have rallied around the words of fellow analyst Charles Barkley on ESPN’s Mike & Mike, where he claimed LaVar Ball was a 2.2 points per game scorer in college, subsequently challenging him to a game of one-on-one, despite being “old and fat.”
Ball went on ESPN later in the day, claiming Barkley didn’t really want to play him, given how “he is too big” and that he’d gotten comfortable eating donuts behind the TNT set.
NBA on TNT’s account followed suit by retaliating with a Google search of Barkley’s highlights and comparing them to the, well… rather nonexistent ones of Mr. Ball. Take a look:
Needless to say this feud has just gotten started and neither of these two loud-mouthed figures seem to want to let go of the rope. But we all know TNT knows drama.
