Charles Barkley has been a huge spokesperson for the National Hockey League as of late, even preferring to watch the NHL playoffs over the NBA playoffs.

That being said, he still has a long way to go if he wants to get the pronunciation of certain player names right, mainly Florida Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky; take a look:


While promoting the fact that TNT will have the rights to the Stanley Cup final for the first time, Barkley absolutely butchers Bobrovsky's name, calling him ‘sirjay Bobobka'


Don't get me wrong, it's great that a great from another sport is promoting the game of hockey at the highest level, but not being able to pronounce Bobrovsky's name properly is cringe inducing.

Either way, to have a prominent figure like Charles Barkley trying to champion the NHL and bring it to a wider audience is awesome, but I doubt NHL fans will let him live this one down anytime.
