During the segment "Gone Fishin'" on Inside the NBA, Charles Barkley made a comment after a doctored photo featuring TNT co-host Kenny Smith, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria Parker (who lives in San Antonio). Barkley said:
As much as I love San Antonio-- great city-- I'm not gonna miss it. You know, one thing about San Antonio, them women down there...
One of the other hosts, Ernie Johnson, tried to stop the train wreck before it happened, but Barkley continues his thought with:
My ass would look normal down there. Let me tell you something, they ain't got no skinny women down there.
Ouch, that was a slap!
According to the Hoopsvibe.com website (who posted about the offensive remark), San Antonio was ranked the 7th fattest city in the country by MensHealth.com. Ranked first was nearby Corpus Christi. El Paso and Dallas were third and fourth, respectively, and Houston came in at ninth to give Texas five of the top 10 (Austin was ranked fifth leanest city in the nation by the same survey).
