Charles Barkley Goes Off On Pelicans, Says They Deserve Galveston Instead Of Cancun

Charles Barkley went on a scathing rant about the New Orleans Pelicans following the team’s third-straight NBA Playoff loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Appearing on the Inside the NBA broadcast, the Hall of Famer joked that they don’t deserve a trip to Cancun in the offseason and instead, they should head to Galveston, Texas. The viral jokes left Shaquille O’Neal unable to control his laughter.

“That dirty a** water,” Barkley said of the city. “We’re not even going to send them to Cancun. We’re gonna send them to Galveston, where that dirty a** water be washed up on the shore. You people think they’re at the beach. We’re not gonna send you to Cancun. Y’all drive your a** down to Galveston. They didn’t even try man. We’re not giving them no plane ticket to the beach. We send their a** to Galveston, Texas, right where that dirty washed up on the beach. They can’t even get in the water.”
