Charles Barkley rips Pelicans after playoff exit, takes swipe at Texas city

Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley sideswiped Galveston, Texas, on Saturday as he offered critical comments about the New Orleans Pelicans.

Charles Barkley criticized the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday as they were swept by the Oklahoma City Thunder in their playoff series.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Josh Giddey and Jalen Williams each had at least 20 points as Oklahoma City won the game, 106-85. It’s the first playoff series the Thunder have won since they made it to the NBA Finals in 2016.

As NBA fans would jokingly say, the Pelicans are headed for a vacation in Cancun, Mexico. But the Pelicans were going somewhere worse, Barkley asserted on TNT, because of how badly the team played in the series loss to Oklahoma City. The Basketball Hall of Famer said they were headed for Galveston, Texas.

"Where they going, Chuck?" Shaquille O’Neal asked.

"Galveston," Barkley responded, leading Shaq to burst out laughing. "That dirty a-- water. We not even gonna send them to Cancun. We’re gonna send them to Galveston where that dirty a-- water be washing up on the shore. You people think they’re at the beach.

"We ain’t sending you to Cancun. Y’all quit. Y’all get down to Galveston. C’mon man. They didn’t even try, man. We ain’t giving them no plane ticket to the beach. We send their a-- to Galveston, Texas, right where that dirty water washes up on the beach. They can’t even get in the water."
