In the battle of Chuck vs. Chicks, score one for the women of San Antonio.

When the San Antonio Spurs opened their Western Conference Finals series against Oklahoma City on Monday night in Texas, a group of women, led by Tim Duncan’s girlfriend, was ready and waiting for Charles Barkley, who had made disparaging comments about them last week on TNT. Led by Vanessa Macias, they wore T-shirts that bore a direct, if poorly punctuated, message.

This began when Barkley ripped the city’s “big ol’ women,” who are a “gold mine for Weight Watchers,” during TNT’s NBA playoff coverage. Elizabeth Zavala, digital news editor for the San Antonio Express-News, wrote in an open letter:

“You come to the Alamo City, diss the landmark River Walk like you were Mark Cuban, and then insult the city’s women, calling them heavy and judging them as churro-eating and needing to join Weight Watchers. Plus, you get your male cronies in the little TV box to laugh at your insults to the women of San Antonio.

Seriously, did you think you’d make your wife, your daughter proud? What would your momma say? Or, how about the women who run Weight Watchers? Don’t they write you a check, spokesman?

Listen, Round Mound of Rebound, you are not skinny, and you are no Tim Duncan. But, the women of San Antonio won’t despair.”

Barkley had refused to apologize, saying viewers could just turn off TNT. Which would have meant that they’d have missed the response by the comely women. Naturally, Chuck had a response to the shirts, saying the women must have been “flown in from Dallas,” to which Macias, a San Antonio radio/TV personality who finished fourth on “Amazing Race,” replied:

Oh, and the Spurs took Game 1, 122-105.
