If you need a laugh at any point in the next 72 hours, the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship takes place this weekend in Lake Tahoe (you can see it on NBC and the NBC Sports Network) and Charles Barkley will be there. Barkley’s golf swing is always good for a laugh.
He swung by the set of NBC Sports Talk and talked NBA happenings with my man Erik Kuselias. Charles talks Jeremy Lin, the Dream Team vs. 2012 (do you really need to guess where he falls on that debate?) and more.
There’s no better way to start out your Friday than listening to Charles Barkley… ok, that’s not true. But this and some coffee is the best we can offer. Enjoy.
