NBA legend wants Warriors fans to view him like Roman Reigns


Charles Barkley and the Golden State Warriors fanbase have feuded throughout the Western Conference finals. But Barkley simply needs the followers to acknowledge him like WWE Champion Roman Reigns.

With the Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks squaring off within the Western Conference finals, the “Inside the NBA” crew has been masking the sequence.

During the broadcasts, Golden State followers mocked the NBA legend, however Barkley was not bothered by the followers. Barkley spoke about his relationship with Warriors followers throughout an episode of “The Ryen Russillo Podcast.”

“I hate their fans, and we have a lot of give and take, and that doesn’t bother me as long as … people react to your opinion,” Barkley mentioned. “You’re doing what you’re supposed to do on television. I mean, your job is to make sure people enjoy the sport.”

Barkley believes his job on tv is to get a response and have Warriors followers acknowledge him like he’s Roman Reigns.

“Hopefully, you have good games, but when you’re an announcer or analyst – whatever I am, I’m not sure what the hell I am – you want people to respond to what you say. So, whether they booed me or cheered me as long as I’m like Roman Reigns, as long as they acknowledged me, I’m doing my job.”

While Barkley could not need the response the followers gave him throughout Game 1, he obtained a response. The 11-time All-Star isn’t any stranger to wanting followers to acknowledge him.

After the occasions of Game 1 on Wednesday, Barkley could not have any points with getting the Golden State Warriors followers to acknowledge him.

On “The Ryen Russillo Podcast,” Charles Barkley made it clear that he needs a response from followers, so he isn’t involved with the way it occurs.

During the pregame present for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, Barkley antagonized Warriors followers by exhibiting his help for the Mavericks.

Barkley’s endorsement of the Mavericks led to an evening of back-and-forth between the 11-time All-Star and the followers in San Francisco.

If Game 1 is a sign of issues to come back within the relationship between Barkley and the followers, Charles will get loads of acknowledgment earlier than the sequence is over.
