Charles Barkley once again made a foolish comment on Inside the NBA. Isaiah Thomas was shown crying on the bench before the Boston Celtics game against the Chicago Bulls, as Chuck offered his opinion on the matter.
The phrases “uncomfortable” and “not a good look” were used by Barkley to describe the footage of Thomas tearing up regarding his sister’s death one day prior.

“I’m uncomfortable with him crying on the sidelines like that… it’s a bad look.” 😒pic.twitter.com/duj61ZXGdE

Barkley may have meant Thomas probably shouldn’t have played, but the words used made Barkley look like an insensitive goof.
Side note: Thomas finished with 33 points, and if he had not played, the Celtics would have gotten destroyed.
