Erick Barkley went crazy after his son’s team lost a game by one point and began punching the father of a boy on the other team.

Barkley, 36, played point guard at Christ the King HS in Queens, with Ron Artest (Metta World Peace) at St. John’s, and then the Portland Trail Blazers.

“He’s not a bad guy,” said one fellow parent. “He just likes to beat people up.”…

“Before the game, Barkley got into a beef with the father of a kid on the other team. Barkley said the kid couldn’t play because he was on more than one team,” said a parent. “After a half-hour of arguing, the kid was allowed to play.”

But as soon as the game was over, a heart-breaking one-point loss for Barkley’s squad, he allegedly walked over to the father and punched him several times.
