Charles Barkley called his producer a p***y

Since his playing days, Barkley has never kept his tongue in check. The star player has been known to say controversial things, and often land himself in trouble. The same got amplified when Chuck got a TV platform as an NBA analyst.

After Game 6 of the Magic-Cavaliers Eastern Conference Finals in 2009, Ernie Johnson was thanking their producer.

“By the way, Tim Kiely our producer, the absolute best in the business, so thanks to TK.”

Chuck couldn’t hold back, and pretended to cough while muttering, “P***y!”

This left Reggie Miller baffled, and he called out the Chuckster. “What are you doing? What is wrong with you?”

Chuck very innocently asked, “What I do?”
