The King’s Guarantee Fail: NBA Twitter Roasts Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley Derailed A 10-Year NBA TV Agreement

By the time he turns 70, Charles Barkley has no plans to continue hosting television shows.

Charles Barkley needs to pick and choose his promises more carefully.

Before Wednesday’s Game 5 of the Warriors’ first-round NBA playoff series against the Kings at Golden 1 Centre, the Hall of Famer vowed, Sacramento would “blow out” their Northern California opponents.

Simply put, Barkley overestimated his guarantee as the Warriors defeated the Kings 123-116 to go into the NBA Playoffs’ second round in 2023 with a win. In the victory, the Warriors’ 123 points were scored by Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green collectively.

Naturally, Barkley’s failed guarantee was brought up on NBA Twitter.

The Warriors will be the focus of all attention as they attempt to defeat the young and tenacious Kings team in San Francisco as the series shifts to Chase Center for Game 6. Warriors’ supporters also hope Barkley won’t make any promises for Golden State since they know what happens when he does.
