Charles Barkley Ate Kenny Smith

Charles Barkley ate fellow basketball analyst Kenny "the Jet" Smith during the third quarter of last night's Western Conference Finals game between the San Antonio Spurs and the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder.

Ernie Johnson, Jr., who moderates Inside the NBA on TNT called it "a perfect storm."  "The Spurs were totally dominating the Thunder, Kenny again claimed that the Celtics would defeat the Heat in six games in the East, and Charles was just plain hungry."  Barkley has served as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers since late last year.

David Kirchhoff, CEO and president of Weight Watchers, was uncertain of how it would handle 'the Barkley debacle.'  "Our contract with Charles rewards him with bonuses for losing weight, but there is no cannibalism clause" that would allow Weight Watchers to void their deal.  "We'll weigh him in a couple of days and see what happens."

The Spurs defeated Oklahoma City 120-111 to take a 2-0 series lead.  The Thunder host game three Thursday evening.
