08:17 AM ET 03.21 | Charles Barkley is at it again. The controversial TNT announcer made some disparaging remarks about the city of Cleveland before the network televised Thursday night's game between the Cavaliers and Portland Trail Blazers. Bantering in TNT's studios in Atlanta with co-hosts Ernie Johnson and Chris Webber, Barkley, who also thinks the Cavs need to speed up their offense, took off on Cleveland and Milwaukee. Barkley: If you were to swap the people in Cleveland and Milwaukee, it'd be the same dreary ass city. They are both dreary places. C Webb, would you agree? Cleveland and Milwaukee, other than Perkins Soul Food joint, they are the same dreary ass city.

Milwaukee, my home. Glitzy enough. I like the lake access. Good place to raise a family.
