    GOLF-CHN-ENTERTAINMENT-PRO AM

    Who is the worst retired NBA star turned golfer? For years Charles Barkley was the runaway winner in this category, but now he has some competition. Yao Ming played in a celebrity golf tournament in China and… he’s not good. Not that you really expect him to be — when you are 7’6″ there are…

    LeBron James

    Move over Kobe Bryant, it’s time for the LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan comparisons to start ramping up. And at the front of it all — Charles Barkley. He is on the opening episode of NBA TV’s Open Court” (which first airs next Tuesday) and he says LeBron could be better than Jordan. From the…

    If you haven’t noticed, this week NBA TV has been running a lot of the show “NB80s,” which is essentially the basketball version of VH1’s “I love the 80s” show. This segment talks about 1980s Charles Barkley, back when he owned Philadelphia and was a phenomenon in the league. As Chris Webber and others say,…

  4. Quote of the Day: Magic, Barkley on huge Team USA win

    Lebron James,Kobe Bryant,  Andre Iguodala

    “I want to congratulate the guys on their continued dominance in London. This is starting to look a lot like our 1992 Dream Team. I look forward to watching them continue to drive for that gold medal and bring it home for the USA.” —Magic Johnson “That’s probably how many points they’d beat the ’92…

  5. Jordan laughs at idea current Olympic team could challenge Dream Team

    Jul 12, 2012, 1:23 PM EST

    1992-dreamteam

    Just like Charles Barkley… what did you really expect Michael Jordan to say? We’ve told you Kobe Bryant said he thought this current team could beat the Dream Team (because guys like Magic and Bird were at the end of their careers), that Mike Krzyzewski (who was an assistant coach in 1992) didn’t blow the…

  6. Barkley said what you did: Dream Team would beat current Team USA

    Jul 12, 2012, 12:04 PM EST

    Charles Barkley Team USA Dream Team

    What did you think Charles Barkley was going to say? Pretty much what most of you did in the comments on this site yesterday — you’ll take the original 1992 Dream Team over this year’s Team USA. Barkley was a key part of the original Dream Team, and he’s not exactly soft-spoken, so you knew…

  7. Video: We’re pretty pumped for Dream Team documentary

    1992-dreamteam

    You probably have seen the commercials for the upcoming NBA TV Dream Team documentary, but we’re getting pretty pumped up for this. So we’re bringing you the trailer. Watch it again. And again. The original NBA Dream Team was 20 years ago this summer — a team with 11 Basketball Hall of Famers that steamrolled…

  8. Video: San Antonio Mayor welcomes Charles Barkley to San Antonio… with rings

    May 26, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Charles Barkley is well known for not liking San Antonio. It’s just not his kind of town. Like a lot of towns in Texas, the people that like San Antonio love it, those that don’t are very “meh” on it. Very few hate it. It’s hard to hate it. It’s a livable city. (Note: For…

  9. New documentary includes look at game Dream Team lost

    May 14, 2012, 9:11 AM EST

    1992-dreamteam

    We remember the original Dream Team — the pros sent to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and others — just rolling teams. The won the Olympic gold medal by an average of nearly 20 points a game and had the opposing teams asking for autographs afterward. But…

    May 2, 2012, 10:25 AM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Charles Barkley won an Emmy. That may be the seventh sign of apocalypse itself, but it happened. Best studio analyst/personality. Congrats to him. He was on the TNT set when the awards were handed out, and Kenny Smith decided to have some fun celebrating with Barkley. And it’s pretty funny. By the way, amazing how…

  11. Veterans say there are sometimes bounties in NBA

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:46 PM EST

    barkley-sixers

    It’s not exactly the same as Gregg Williams and what is going on with the New Orleans Saints, but a couple of veteran players interviewed this week say the idea of bounties offered for hitting and hurting an NBA player are not unheard of. Cedric Maxwell, who played 11 seasons in the NBA (most famously…

  12. Charles Barkley thinks that 20% of NBA fans “should be shot.” Oh, Charles.

    Barkley, representing the 1992 United States Olympic "Dream Team"  in the Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2010, speaks in Springfield

    Charles Barkley has never been shy about speaking his mind, and TV/Radio personality has never prevented athletes from speaking their mind when they appear on one of his shows. So when the former NBA superstar and current TNT personality Charles Barkley went on Rome’s radio show earlier this morning, the chances of Barkley saying something…

  13. Charles Oakley pretty much thinks that everybody is a wimp

    Feb 21, 2012, 5:26 PM EST

    Charles Oakley

    Charles Oakley was on Jim Rome’s radio show today, and the former Bulls big man had some choice words for Kevin Garnett, Charles Barkley, and Kendrick Perkins. Here are the highlights, courtesy of Larry Brown Sports: “Garnett left Minnesota and hollered and screamed and all that but hes not a tough guy,” Oakley said as Sports…

  14. Video: Kevin Garnett says Celtics won “a bar fight”

    Jan 27, 2012, 10:09 AM EST

    Orlando Magic's Howard guards Boston Celtics' Garnett along with Magic's teammate Anderson during their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Kevin Garnett was a little amped after the Celtics came from 27 points down to beat the Orlando Magic. Really amped. Which made for a great interview on TNT where he asks Craig Sager if he has ever been in a bar fight, then realizing the impossibility of that tells him to ask Charles Barkley…

  15. Video: Check out Charles Barkley on Saturday Night Live

    Jan 9, 2012, 8:36 AM EST

    Shaquille O'Neal

    In case you have a life and were out Saturday night (and forgot to set your DVR), Charles Barkley was at 30 Rock hosting Saturday Night Live. Since you were out having fun, we thought you should see the highlights, like him making fun of Shaq above. Although, best part of that skit is Bill…

    NBA All-Star Saturday Night Presented By State Farm

    Maybe you heard, Charles Barkley has lost a few pounds. Well, of course you’ve heard — if you’ve watched one NBA game this year you’ve heard. Barkley’s Weight Watchers ads are the new Franklin & Bash promo, you simply cannot escape them. Weight Watchers wants to reach into the male market and the Round Mound…

  17. LeBron thinks London Olympic team compares to Dream Team, too

    Jan 3, 2012, 2:21 PM EST

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA is not backing away from filling the big shoes. Last week USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said he thought the upcoming USA Olympic team was a “fair comparison” with the 1992 Dream team that featured Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and others. LeBron James thinks Colangelo is right,…

  18. We’re going to see less of Charles Barkley… he dropped 27 pounds

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:41 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Saturday Night Presented By State Farm

    Somehow you know Shaquille O’Neal is going to take credit for this when he sits down in the TNT studio on Christmas. Charles Barkley has dropped 27 pounds so far thanks to Weight Watchers, who now sponsors and promotes him. “Diet is not a man’s word because we don’t like to diet—we like to eat,”…

  19. Video: Shaq sings his intro into TNT, so get ready

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:49 AM EST

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Usually I am a fan of the “don’t mess with a good thing” school of thought. But sometimes you take something good like waffles, combine it with fried chicken and you get something better. Or, if you take Charles Barkley and the TNT crew and mix in Shaquille O’Neal, maybe you improve the best game-night…

  20. Add Barkley to list of people slamming Bryant Gumbel

    Oct 20, 2011, 4:17 PM EST

    Image (1) cbarkley-thumb-250x140-18078.jpg for post 6241

    Bryant Gumbel did what he set out to do — he got people talking about labor relations in the NBA. People are talking about David Stern and how the owners treat the players. Although, many people are just focusing on Gumbel’s “plantation overseer” comment more than the substance of his thoughts. (Henry Abbott did a…

  21. Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller not so much with standing united

    Oct 15, 2011, 6:42 PM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    The NBA veterans at the end of their careers say that the reason they’re so committed to holding the line, particularly that 53 percent line, is to protect the players that came after them. The players who have already gotten their tipoffs in and are out of the game? They’re a little bit more realistic…

  22. Charles Barkley may donate TNT salary as lockout drags on

    Oct 12, 2011, 8:04 AM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Charles Barkley likes money. A lot. You really can’t underestimate this. He just doesn’t want to be given money he hasn’t earned. (Insert your own craps table joke here, I’m not going there.) His contract with TNT as an NBA analyst has him getting paid whether there is a season or not. So while the…

  23. Video: Charles Barkley sings Karaoke “My Way” ala Sinatra

    Sep 19, 2011, 7:49 PM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Charles Barkley is no Frank Sinatra. Primarily because Sinatra sang in tune. But below is video of Barkley doing the Sinatra standard “My Way” (via Deadspin) and what he lacks in singing skill he makes up for in style. It’s a pretty good rendition. Save for the whole in tune thing. By the way, reports…

  24. Charles Barkley tells LeBron James to lighten up

    Sep 19, 2011, 12:46 PM EST

    Image (1) cbarkley-thumb-250x140-18078.jpg for post 6241

    It’s the offseason, there’s a lockout, and yet Charles Barkley is still finding a way to get Miami fans mad at him. And they were plenty mad at him before. Barkley went on Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable (a new show on ESPN2) last Friday to talk about whatever Barkley has an opinion on. Which…

  25. Lockout video: Bernard King was fun to watch

    Sep 7, 2011, 9:19 PM EST

    While working the last couple of days, I’ve been watching the rain fall in Queens. Theoretically I was trying to watch the U.S. Open and not Brad Gilbert’s ramblings, but the rain in NYC gave me the raw end of that deal. Still, the establishing shots got me thinking about New York, and from there…
