Charles Barkley Says He Was ‘Uncomfortable’ With Isaiah Thomas Crying Before Playoffs (Video)
Just before the Boston Celtics were set to take on the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs on Sunday, point guard Isaiah Thomas was the focus of every camera in the arena.
His sister, Chyna Thomas, tragically passed away on Saturday, and TNT’s Charles Barkley felt the need to say how “uncomfortable” Thomas’ crying was for him before their playoff game.

Personally, I feel like Barkley was just trying to suggest that Thomas wasn’t mentally ready to play in this game, considering his situation combined with the emotions of an intense playoff game.
