SAN ANTONIO – It took three years for Charles Barkley to officially apologize to the women of San Antonio after saying there are “big ol’ women down” in the Alamo City back in 2014.
But was it really an apology?
During Monday night’s episode of TNT’s Inside the NBA before tip-off of the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs playoff game, Barkley started the show stating he had to “apologize to somebody tonight."
With Shaq, Ernie Johnson and Baron Davis -- filling in for Kenny Smith -- at the roundtable, (Ernie) Johnson asked Barkley, “Who do you have to apologize to?”
Barkley responded, “I want to apologize to the women of San Antonio. Because Ernie, I had churros last night.”
“I see what all the excitement is about! I had churros last night," Barkley said. "Them damn things good, Ernie. Them churros good. I see why they got all them big ol’ women down in San Antonio. Man, them churros are the bomb!”
Churros has been an ongoing food for thought since Barkley’s comment during the 2014 NBA Playoffs when the Spurs took on the Portland Trailblazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.
“If I go to Portland, I’m going to get all the free Nike stuff I want,” Barkey said. “If I go to San Antonio, I’m going to get a bunch of churros."
Barkley went on to add, “That’s a gold a mine for Weight Watchers (and) Victoria is definitely a secret.”
With TNT set to broadcast four more Rockets-Spurs playoff games this year, San Antonio should be ready for more Barkley comments to come.
