On Thursday during a TNT Basketball broadcast, Charles Barkley flipped the bird at television audiences while discussing Kobe Bryantâ€™s finger injury.
Barkley allegedly was deliberate in saluting his TNT broadcast colleagues Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson with his middle finger. While one could write it off as an April Foolâ€™s Day joke, Barkley didnâ€™t take the bait from Johnson. Hereâ€™s the exchange between the two:
EJ: â€œDo me a favor and say April Fools for what you just did. That you were trying to be funny?â€
Barkley: â€œFor who?â€
Hereâ€™s the link to the video.
