According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, a Golden State Warriors fan was so upset that TNT analyst Charles Barkley picked the Oklahoma City Thunder to win the series against the Warriors that he “challenged him to an actual fight” at a local hotel near the Thunder’s arena.

Chesapeake Energy Arena security reportedly removed the fan from the venue.
The encounter was said to have occurred on Sunday following the Thunder’s 28-point blowout or Golden State, just two days before the Warriors fell 3-1 to Oklahoma City, facing a win-or-go-home game Thursday night back in Oakland.
The Warriors have been outscored 359-301 in their three losses to the Thunder. They will look to stave off elimination and keep their record-breaking 73-win season alive on Thursday night.
