After the tragic loss of his sister, NBA star Isaiah Thomas was pictured on the sidelines crying while being comforted by his teammate Avery Bradley. TNT’s commentator and former NBA player Charles Barkley commented that he thinks it wasn’t a good look for him.
This has been seen as a controversial comment to make and was spoken about between TNT’s panel. I don’t think it was Barkley’s place to say such a thing, but he is paid to speak his mind, appropriate or not. Isaiah Thomas went on to play and scored 33 with 6 assists and 5 rebounds in a loss to the Chicago Bulls.
