Charles Barkley: Wizards ‘struggling like black folks in the ‘60s’

So the TNT studio crew had some more fun with the Wizards last night, after their blowout loss in Phoenix. Some of the highlights, with the game-action or Phoenix-bits omitted.

Charles Barkley: “We call them the Generals, Ernie.” 

Kenny Smith: “I just want to know when I can start the music, Ernie.”

Ernie Johnson: “You could cue the music in the third quarter, when Phoenix outscored them, 32-13.”

All: [Whistle Harlem Globetrotters music]

Smith: “Man, Darrell Walker is rolling over.”

Johnson: “Kevin Loughery , man.”

Barkley: “Struggling like black folks in the ‘60s....And then it annoys me, because they’ve got great uniforms.”

Shaq: “Bernard King, Albert King rolling over.” 

Smith: “I’m just waiting for the bucket with the confetti to come out one night, man. I just cannot wait for that night.”

Barkley: “Hey, every time I see them play, I’ve been looking for Meadowlark Lemon.”

Smith “Shout out to Curly Neal, who I ran into on the plane the other day.”

Barkley: “Hey man, Meadowlark Lemon is the greatest guy in the world. He couldn’t go out there with them. Curly Neal’s a good dude. Meadowlark Lemon, please come out of the stands one day and play with the Wizards.”

That would be a new tradition.
