Video: Charles Barkley hilariously still confused by how virtual fans work

Charles Barkley, NBA

Hall of Fame NBA forward and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley is having a hard time understanding the concept of virtual fans.

Chuck had a hilarious back-and-forth with the other members of “Inside the NBA” as they chided him for failing to understand the functionality of the fans on the screen.

The NBA is using Microsoft Teams to project the images from fans of various teams throughout the course of the seeding games in Orlando.

In turn, there have been some pretty amusing and noteworthy cameos. Chris Bosh tuned in to watch the Los Angeles Lakers and crosstown rival Clippers. Paul Pierce was in virtual attendance as Boston took on the Portland Trail Blazers.

More recently, fellow “Inside the NBA’ commentator Shaquille O’Neal tuned in to watch the New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings square off.

It might not be long before Barkley himself makes an appearance as a virtual fan.

Anyone can apply to join via Microsoft Teams, and this latest discussion could lead to the “Round Mound of Rebound” showing face.
