Before Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, Barkley had an incident with a fan that resulted in some coarse language from the Hall of Famer.
While the remarks were not professional, the crowd loved them, and several people online found the moment hilarious.
McAfee spoke about criticism on his show:
"It's always that Chuck is unclassy, Chuck is unprofessional. Nobody ever judges the person that talked s**t to Chuck, and Chuck is just answering how he would answer and how he's answered since the beginning."
McAfee was also so entertained by the moment that he called for Barkley to join the internet and engage on social media how he engaged with the crowd.
"we got to see that when he said he would f**k somebody's momma in their house," McAfee said. "By the way, Chuck, let's get on the internet. If you’re gonna be telling that to people on the internet everyday, we need you out here. OK?
"The god, Kevin Durant is doing this. Lamar Jackson's out here doing his thing. Hey, Chuck, we get you on the internet, you'd be beloved out here."
While social media does have some issues that concerned Barkley when deciding not to be on the internet, there's also a culture that would embrace his comments.
Barkley's initial response also helped stir up the fans outside enough that the back and forth continued throughout the evening. That led to more comedic moments.
