Who you calling fat, Chuck?

Charles Barkley did it again. The NBA commentator called San Antonio a fat city with an "old dirty" river.

He made the comments on TNT's Inside the NBA following Wednesday night's Oklahoma City-Los Angeles playoff game.

Barkley said, "San Antonio, I told ya, it's the mother load for weight watchers." He then commented on B-roll of the River Walk, saying, "Right there, that old dirty San Antonio River."

His comments, however, did not go unchallenged.

Co-host Shaquille O'Neal, who attended Cole High School in San Antonio, defended the Alamo City.

"I played high school ball in San Antonio -- stop it!" Shaq said, then signed off by announcing, "I miss you San Antonio!"

Barkley's comments should not be surprising. He has been very vocal about San Antonio's alleged weight problem and his distaste for the River Walk.

In 2010, Barkley took a jab at San Antonio by announcing on his show that "they ain't got no skinny women down there." Barkley, also known as "The Round Mound of Rebound," even went as far to say "My a** will look normal there."

But come on, Chuck. Like you've got any room to talk.

Earlier this week Barkley shed his shirt during a "shirt off" competition against who? Shaq.

So once again, Chuck. Who you calling fat?
