Showing human emotions is not something that Charles Barkley Agrees With
Twitter is pissed off with former NBA player Charles Barkley and for good reason. Celtics team member Isaiah Thomas was grieving over the death of his sister at his Sunday game. Camera footage showed Thomas crying on a bench before his teams first playoff game. One Day Prior, his 22-year-old sister, Chyna J. Thomas, passed away in a car accident in Tacoma. The Celtics ended up losing the game, but Isaiah played very well, scoring 33 points.
On TNT’s Tip-Off Show, Barkley said, “I’m not feeling comfortable with him sitting on the sideline crying like that. That makes me uncomfortable.” Barkley showed complete disregard for Isaiah’s feelings and his situation by making it about how he felt. Who cares about how uncomfortable Charles Barkley is? Losing a loved one is one of the worst feelings in the world, only a cold hearted psychopath wouldn’t be emotionally bothered. But Barkley just doesn’t seem to understand or have those kinds of feelings.
Barkley continued, “That tells me he’s not in shape to play … To be sitting on the sideline a few minutes before the game, crying, that makes me uncomfortable for him. That’s just not a good look, in my personal opinion.” It would have been better if Charles Barkley just kept his mouth shut.

It takes a real man to show emotion. Not some bitch ass no ring has-been who's "uncomfortable" at a man crying. #CharlesBarkley
