Charles Barkley can’t say Dellavedova

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night’s Cleveland/San Antonio game was was a match-up between titans, with an amazing ending and a record-setting performance from Cavs guard Kyrie Irving. It was also special because TNT analyst Charles Barkley left behind the studio in Atlanta and showed up in San Antonio, where he joined Chris Webber and Kevin Harlan on the call. And while Charles may have left the studio behind, he was still The Chuckster, as you see here when he tried oh so hard to pronounce Cavs guard Matthew Dellavedova‘s last name. Good job, good effort.

    God bless Charles…he brings so much enjoyment and entertainment to following the NBA…and he just doesn’t give a sh_t what others think….gotta love the Chuckster’s style!

    And he’s often right (more than Kenny would like to admit)…e.g. his views on analytics (you can’t measure heart) and his views on the great Kevin McHale (one of the best ever)….

    See you in your favourite city next year for the All Star game big fella!
