Black Lives Matter rioters unleashed mayhem on the city of Louisville and shot two police officers.
That came in response to a grand jury not charging the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death.
But NBA analyst Charles Barkley told one harsh truth about Black Lives Matter and Brenonna Taylor’s death.
Inside the NBA on TNT is one of the longest running and most popular pre and post game shows in all of sports.
Former NBA star Charles Barkley’s free-wheeling style makes Inside the NBA must watch TV as viewers never know what Barkley will say.
Since sports shows are as much political debate as analyzing games these days, Barkley addressed the Black Lives Matter riots in Louisville after the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death were not charged.
Barkley noted this case differed from other police misconduct cases because Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker shot at police officers, which caused the officers to return fire leading to Taylor’s tragic death.
God bless Barkley. He also is the only NBA commentator willing to point out that Brianna Taylor’s boyfriend fired first and hit a cop before they returned fire at him. The lack of basic factual understanding in this case is staggering. pic.twitter.com/2DFIs1XjNn

Co-host Shaquille O’Neal agreed, noting that the police officers had a warrant and were acting within their legal capacity.
This is a brave take in the NBA today. Prominent voices in the league like LeBron James and Gregg Popovich fed the public lie after lie about the Breonna Taylor case.
Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal stepped in with a reality check.
