Charles Barkley Meets First Non-Stripper Named ‘Diamond’

A couple of weeks ago we posted a story about Draymond Green trolling Doc Rivers with the manufacturing of some “Cool Story, Glenn” gear. Bay Area News Group’s Diamond Leung, who is a Golden State Warriors beat writer, originally reported on that story.
