Charles Barkley is at it again.

The TNT basketball analyst explained why Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors had every right to take a physical jab at LeBron James during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

“When a guy steps over you, you have a moral obligation to punch him in the balls. Because that’s really disrespectful to step over a guy. You’re supposed to pop him in his junk if he steps over you like that.”

Barkley made those comments while chatting on SiriusXM’s Bleacher Report Radio.

“That’s a perfectly fine response,” Barkley continued. “You got to act like you didn’t try to do it; I will admit that. When somebody steps over you, they’re doing that intentionally to rub it in your face. They’re deliberately trying to punk you in that situation.”

Green has been suspended from Game 5, which takes place in Oakland on Monday night, for a Flagrant 1 foul during the scuffle with James.
