Following the New Orleans Pelicans' playoff-clinching win over the Los Angeles Clippers, TNT's Inside The NBA crew interviewed Brandon Ingram.

Right before they let Ingram go, Charles Barkley threw a jab at Zion Williamson. It was uncalled for, but his comment did go viral on social media.

"Clearly him and Zion don't hang out together," Barkley told Ingram. "They bodies don't look the same. Y'all don't eat at the same places."

Ingram couldn't help but laugh at that comment from Barkley.

"I'm gone, man. I'm gone," Ingram replied.

This isn't the first time Barkley has taken a shot at Williamson, and honestly, it probably won't be the last either.

Williamson missed the entire regular season for the Pelicans, but that didn't stop Willie Green's young squad from scratching and clawing their way to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

The Pelicans will take on the Phoenix Suns in their first-round series. Game 1 will tip off on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
