Basketball great Charles Barkley is facing heat for disparaging San Francisco's homeless and criminal element during an NBA All-Star Game broadcast.
“If you had a chance of being in the cold, or being around a bunch of homeless crooks in San Francisco, which would you take?” Barkley asked fellow Hall of Famer Reggie Miller, telling him to choose between Indianapolis or San Francisco.
Next year's All-Star game is set for the Bay.  Sunday's game was held in Indianapolis.
But what did he say that was so off?
Last year, California Gov. Gavin Newsom had to clear the homeless to make the city presentable for Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Was he wrong?
