Charles Barkley — yes, the Hall of Famer and TNT NBA analyst — sounded off on air, stating point-blank that he wanted to punch Golden State Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green, a league Defensive Player of the Year and two-time champion, in the face. Barkley’s controversial comments came during Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. Shortly after Golden State went up 2-0 over the Pelicans, Green clapped back. “If you’re not going to punch me in the face when you see me,” Green said, “then shut up.” A day later, Barkley delivered an apology. “I said something that I shouldn’t have said,” Barkley said Wednesday on Chicago’s ESPN 1000 Waddle & Silvy. “I want to be man enough to apologize. I was 100 percent wrong.” Meanwhile, in the Eastern Conference playoffs, a Game 1 drama between Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kendrick Perkins and superstar Drake had us ready to break out the popcorn. Kanye West gave us #ifslaverywasachoice, while Van Lathan, a TMZ senior producer spoke a lot of people’s minds. It was an all-around chippy week, to say the least.
