Charles Barkley hasn’t held back any punches directed at Warriors fans throughout their favorite team’s playoff run, so 49ers legend Jerry Rice had to fire back.
During Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Thursday night, Rice took to Instagram and posted a picture of his three Super Bowl rings and Pro Football Hall of Fame ring on Instagram.
In the caption, Rice wrote, “Do you have any championship rings #charlesbarkley @nbaontnt ? Stop hating on the Warriors!!”
Barkley has been a villain to the Warriors fan base ever since he called San Francisco “hell,” chanted “you suck too!” at Warriors fans and also picked the Mavericks to win the conference finals.
Things got out of hand after the Warriors eliminated the Mavericks and fans began throwing things at him.
Luckily, Barkley kept his composure and did not try to fight thousands of fans.
The Warriors will face either the Celtics or the Heat in the NBA Finals, which begin Thursday, June 2.
