On Saturday, Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas' sister tragically died in a car crash. Despite his sister's death, Thomas still decided to play yesterday in the Celtics' game against the Bulls. And a few hours before the game, TNT’s Inside the NBA aired footage of Thomas being consoled by teammate Avery Bradley during shoot-around. Pretty understandable that Thomas would be emotional, right? Well, Charles Barkley didn't think so.
Before the game, Barkley went on the air and talked about how he's "uncomfortable" with the footage of Thomas crying before the game, even going as far to say that it's "not a good look." Barkley also made it seem like the footage of Thomas crying on the sidelines was from just minutes before the game, whereas it was actually a couple hours earlier. But does that really matter? Nope!
C'mon, Charles! The guy's sister just died! He's obviously going to be emotional about the whole thing. You should probably just give him a pass on this one.
