ESPN and TNT NBA desks joined forces to cover the in-season tournament. The broadcasting superteam brought Charles Barkley and others together including ESPN's Bob Myers.

Charles Barkley has a habit of not holding back, even when there are cameras rolling. Barkley has criticised the Golden State Warriors repeatedly over the years, even at times when they appeared to be on the verge of a dynasty.

Barkley took a shot at Bob Myers, the former Warriors general manger and ESPN analyst who is credited as the architect of their dynasty during Thursday’s ESPN-TNT coverage for the NBA’s In Season Tournament.

Barkley told Myers, “I want you to get credit for jumping from the Titanic before she sank.”

Barkley’s comments were made during a live broadcast in Las Vegas, in front of a large crowd of NBA Fans.

Some in the crowd seemed to laugh at Barkley’s reference while others appeared to boo the TNT analyst.


Myers replied, “I have many friends in that area.”

Barkley replied, “Yeah you will see them very soon.”

The Warriors won four NBA titles in eight years, making it one of the most successful runs in recent history.

Injury, suspensions and other factors are beginning to have an impact. Last season, the Warriors were eliminated from the Western Conference Semifinals by the Los Angeles Lakers and have had a disappointing start to this season.
