San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro trolls the living daylights out of Charles Barkley
San Antonio mayor Julian Castro records video mocking Charles Barkley in retaliation for his verbal abuse of the Alamo City.
The San Antonio Spurs have somehow become ironically cool. Or cooly ironic. Or something. I get confused on the meaning of both of those concepts at this point. But whereas the Spurs used to be boring and slow, now they're fast and wide open. Whereas Tim Duncan used to be robotic and soulless, now he's funny and iconic. Manu Ginobili used to just be a flopper. Now he's a flopper who knocks bats out of the air. Even Gregg Popovich is cool.
But one person who does not think the city the Spurs are from is cool is Charles Barkley, who notoriously has publicly mocked San Antonio and its Riverwalk specifically on TNT's "Inside the NBA." It's an ongoing joke about how much Chuck hates the Alamo City. But for once, the city is fighting back with something more than "you suck" chants. San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro published this video Friday as a message to Barkley:
Pulling out the "RINGZ" argument. Strong move, Mayor. Score one for the River City.
