“If it tastes good, spit it out,” Barkley said during a Thursday night NBA segment on TNT. You can watch the funny video clip below.

You can always count on Charles Barkley for a good laugh! That’s just a fact. And before everyone tries to freak out and claim this is fat shaming, just take a deep breath and calm down.

Barkley gets paid to entertain and there’s nothing wrong with what he said. As a former fat guy, I 100% endorse his comments.

If a former fat guy says they’re fine, then they’re fine. Those are the rules!

Furthermore, if an athlete is getting to a point where it looks like he might lose some of his explosiveness, there’s nothing wrong with pointing it out.

Hell, I’d argue that you have a responsibility to do it. I’m not saying Zion is at that point, but reports about him putting on the pounds aren’t exactly new.

Just take a moment to laugh and enjoy some humor. At the end of the day, I’m sure Zion will be just fine!
