Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley has hit back at some hecklers with an equally vulgar and hilarious response.
The Inside the NBA team was filming a live show prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals series between Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks.
Warriors fans took this as an opportunity to lay into Barkley, who had predicted the Mavericks to win the series.
It appears they most definitely got under Chuck’s skin, as the former NBA MVP turned around to dish out a trash talk akin to a 13-year-old on a Call Of Duty video game.
Barkley replied: “If you don’t leave me alone, I’m going to come to your house and f**k your mamma.”
The response elicited a mass of laughter from the sea of blue and gold, as they revelled in the fact that they had clearly hit a nerve.
While not completely coherent in the video it appears that the Warriors fans brought up championships to the former star – something he never won.
Barkley kept the feud going with the Dallas side and their fans after the Warriors’ took out the game 112-87.
Chuck was breaking down the loss in a post-game broadcast when a sea of fans started chanting ‘Chuck you suck’ which could be heard loud and clear over the broadcast.

The former 76ers player paused his analysis to reply to the fans, saying: “Hey, you’re right. And y’all suck too!”
Shaq, who was a fellow panellist, appeared to amp up the fans following the response while the other presenters warned Barkley about not getting fired.
It’s not a surprise the fans had it in for Barkley, as he was riling them up before the game even started.
In one video he can be seen looking back at the fans and chanting: “Let’s go Mavs, let’s go Mavs!”

Meanwhile, during the broadcast, he went back and forth with Warriors star Draymond Green who pointed out that Charles had picked the opposing side to win the series.
Barkley said: “I don’t dislike the area, I hate the area.”
To which Green replied: “The area hates you.”
Green admitted that he plans on rubbing it in the face of Barkley if the Warriors manage to win another championship.
He said: “If I win another championship that's one more ring added to the panel that's not him...I don't know how that feels, I always won. But I guess I'd feel the same way.
He continued, laughing: “When play-offs come around is he going to tell us how to win? I’m not taking that advice from Chuck.”
