Barkley com­mits tech­ni­cal foul

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - AT­LANTA —

Charles Barkley ac­ci­den­tally used a curse word on-air when de­scrib­ing the New York Knicks’ play on TNT’s “In­side the NBA.”

Dur­ing high­lights of the Cava­liers’ 119-104 win over New York in Cleve­land on Thurs­day, Barkley used a syn­onym for ex­cre­ment in ref­er­ence to the Knicks.

Host Ernie John­son im­me­di­ately chided Barkley, who re­peat­edly apol­o­gized. Fel­low an­a­lyst Shaquille O’Neal joked that he’d pay any fine from the Fed­eral Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion.

TNT’s cam­eras also caught Barkley’s shocked re­ac­tion af­ter say­ing the word. He cov­ered his mouth be­fore laugh­ing off the slip of tongue.
