If there's one thing Charles Barkley's going to do, it's speak his mind.

And after the Mavericks win over Phoenix Sunday night, meaning they'd advance to meet the Warriors in San Francisco, Chuck let his feelings about the city be known. Going as far as calling it "hell."

We’re going to hell, I mean San Francisco. I hate San Francisco. I just don’t like it. I have to like a city because y'all like it?

When fellow "Inside the NBA" analyst Shaquille O'Neal asked if Chuck planned on visiting Alcatraz, Barkley shot back:

Are we going to visit your family? A family reunion?

San Francisco is widely-regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in America. So it makes you wonder why Charles Barkley hates it so much.

His "Inside" partners looked visibly confused when the Hall of Famer referred to SF as "hell." But, Charles isn't usually one to move with the crowd.
