Charles Barkley was on the wrong end of a big-time burn from one fan Friday.
On Thursday, the former Auburn and NBA star revealed his NCAA Tournament picks. Like many offerings from dreamers throughout the country, his bracket has been mangled in multiple areas with upsets happening Thursday and Friday.
For example, his pick of Arizona reaching the national title game was way off, after the Wildcats were upset by Buffalo on Thursday night. Moving Arkansas into the Elite Eight was another big miss as the Razorbacks fell to Butler on Friday. And Wichita State’s inclusion in the Sweet 16 proved unwise after the Shockers lost to Marshall on Friday.
As a refresher, you can check out Barkley’s selections below:

The whiffs didn’t go unnoticed. A fan in Nashville poked fun at Barkley’s bracket misses with an amazing sign that also tweaked the former basketball star’s golf swing. This is next-level trolling at its finest. Fortunately, a camera captured the message in all its glory.

Sorry, Barkley. But bravo to you, fan, for providing us all with a little chuckle at Chuck’s expense.
