Why Jamal Murray is wearing a Charles Barkley T-shirt
Jamal Murray showed up to the AT&T Center in San Antonio for Game 3 of the Denver Nuggets’ first round playoff series against the Spurs wearing a Charles Barkley T-shirt, and there is a very good reason for that.
After the Nuggets’ Game 2 win over the Spurs, Murray wore a T-shirt that featured his face on it. The shirt, made by Homage, displays a mock NBA Jam screen that shows Murray and Nikola Jokic as teammates in the video game.
Barkley saw the shirt and commented on it during TNT’s postgame show, saying that was poor form by Murray because you can’t wear a shirt with your face on it.
So how did Murray respond? Never one to shy from a confrontation, he wore a T-shirt with Barkley’s face on it.

You have to appreciate Murray’s sense of humor and quick-thinking in wearing that shirt.
