Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside took exception to Charles Barkely's criticism on TNT of his rebounding prowess.

Barkley made the comments on Thursday night's on "Inside the NBA" as part of a larger discussion on whether or not Whiteside was All-Star material just yet in his career. Though Shaquille O'Neal defended Whiteside's game, Barkley insisted the Heat big man didn't do enough rebounding and defending.

Whiteside apparently didn't like what he was hearing and posted this response on Instagram, with a little help from Nick Young.

When Chuck says you don't rebound enough but you top 5 rebounders in the NBA in less than 30 mins #FACTS
