Charles Barkley served as color commentator for Thursday’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks. In order to get to the game, Barkley decided to travel like a true New Yorker: by taking the subway.
The ride was Barkley’s first-ever on the subway. As he told Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, “Hell, I’m from Alabama. I’ve never taken the subway before.”
Deitsch has a fun running diary of the trip that you can read here. Below is footage of the Round Mound of Rebound’s first ride on the underground.
