    NBA 2K12, by putting 15 legends of the NBA into this year’s game, sparked a little debate — which 15 guys should be in? It’s easy to say Michael Jordan and Magic, but when it gets to around 15 the lines are not so clear. Especially when you know the game makers are giving extra…

    Robert Guerrero v Orlando Salido

    Michael Jordan had advice for Tiger Woods as the world’s most famous golfer gets back on the course this weekend for the first time in three months. That makes sense — few people can relate to dominating a sport or being an international star as Tiger did, Michael Jordan is one of those people. Charles…

    Shaquille O'Neal laughs as he announces his retirement from NBA at a news conference in Windermere

    Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley at the same desk every Thursday night. First, that is appointment television. Second, TNT may want to increase its craft services budget (the people who cater food to the set). TNT made it official Thursday, announcing that Shaquille O’Neal will join the “Inside the NBA” show before and after games…

    Jul 8, 2011, 1:09 PM EDT

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

    If Charles Barkley were NBA commissioner for one day, what would he do? Solve the lockout? Break up the Miami Heat? Get rid of the big video board Kenny Smith had to walk over to all playoffs? No, he’d go after hecklers. That’s what he told the Golf Channel’s David Feherty, who has a new interview…

    Jun 9, 2011, 5:04 PM EDT

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

    Charles Barkley may not want to buy a second home in the Miami area. There’s not a lot of love for him there, because he still has no love for the Miami Heat. And because he is Charles Barkley, he proclaims that from the mountaintops. Which is what he did on ESPN radio in Chicago…

  9. Barkley says Nike overprotective of LeBron James

    May 26, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

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

    In the ongoing feud between Charles Barkley and all things Miami Heat, Barkley has now drawn Nike into the fight. Not that he’s wrong. In the wake of fans chanting things at Barkley on the set and him responding with a finger gesture (a version of “you’re number one”), then Dwyane Wade backing the fans,…

  10. Heat fans get on Barkley, he flips them off, idiocy ensues

    May 23, 2011, 8:06 PM EDT

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

    I was on a talk radio show in Miami today, where they should be celebrating the fact that their team seems to be taking control of their series against the Bulls. And what was one of the big topics of the day? Charles Barkley flipping the bird to some Heat fans. I linked to the…

  11. Charles Barkley, Dwyane Wade having a little spat

    May 19, 2011, 2:52 PM EDT

    wadebarkley

    Charles Barkley and Dwyane Wade are not talking right now. Well, unless T-Mobile pays them to. Yahoo’s Kelly Dwyer tweeted this last night after the Heat evened their series against the Chicago Bulls. Overheard as I leave the UC. Dwyane Wade: “I’m not talking to you, man.” Charles Barkley: “What I do this time?” I…

    May 17, 2011, 5:14 PM EDT

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

    Rick Welts, the CEO of the Phoenix Suns, came out publically saying he was gay in a lengthy Sunday New York Times piece. (Are there short Sunday New York Times pieces?) That has restarted the discussion about gay athletes in professional sports, and how that will be received when an active player in one of…

  13. Charles Barkley calls the Heat too “whiny”

    May 17, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Ever since “The Decision,” the Miami Heat have been seen by many as the league’s biggest villains. However, Charles Barkley, who was no stranger to controversy as a player, thinks that the Heat have made things harder on themselves with the public by playing up an “us against the world” mentality too much this season: “[The…

    May 13, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

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

    This has been a good NBA playoffs for TNT. Well, except for watching Kenny Smith take a long walk to a dull but large video board. Aside that it’s been great. TNT’s ratings are up 25 percent on the 33 games it has broadcast so far, reports Tom Ziller at SBN. That follows a patter…

    Jan 6, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

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

    UPDATE 11:27 pm: As expected, Charles Barkley went on a rant, something done at halftime of the Thunder/Mavericks game. We have transcribed it for you to make your life complete: “There was a report out today by some idiot, and I don’t know his name because I don’t blog at all, he accused me of…

  16. Charles Oakley to join Paul Silas’ staff in Charlotte

    Dec 23, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    Charles Oakley

    “My thing is, when (Charles) Barkley played basketball, he didn’t practice, he wasn’t a leader, he wasn’t this or that, he just had natural talent so he got chosen to the Dream Team, All Star team because he had the talent and he was the franchise player on the team.” “Dwight Howard is embarrassing Patrick…

    Here’s a fun little diversion for a hump day. Spike Lee is back making NBA commercials and this is the first one (it debuts on Christmas). Courtesy the fine folks at Dime Magazine, we bring you the latest Charles Barkley/Dwyane Wade ad for T-Mobile. Which is pretty amusing, as you expect from Lee. My only…

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

    Charles Barkley speaks truth to power. Well, actually he just talks a lot. Some of it is truth, some bravado, some is… fertilizer. You can categorize Barkley’s comments to Conan O’Brien on taking on President Barack Obama in a game of one-on-one in in whichever of those categories you want (via Ball Don’t Lie). “I’m…

  19. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Nov 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    Moses Malone and Julius Erving watch the game

    It was where Dr. J soared, where Charles Barkley banged and balled, where the fans were close and let the players know it. From both teams. It’s where the Philadelphia Flyers pummeled everyone they could, where more concerts took place than can be remembered. And now, the Philadelphia Spectrum is no more. Today a wrecking…

  20. Charles Barkley has a couple words if you think he has a gambling problem

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

    Two years ago, Charles Barkley said he had probably lost $10 million gambling and that it might be a problem. That he liked gambling but had to learn to do so without losing so much money. Now he tells GQ that he doesn’t have a problem (via TrueHoop): “Yeah, I like to gamble. And I’m…

  21. Barkley: Miami has to win three championships in the next five years to be a success

    TNT held their annual NBA media luncheon today, which gave assembled media members the chance to ask TNT personalities Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Marv Albert, Steve Kerr, and Mike Fratello.

  22. Charles Barkley on LeBron: “Just when you think it couldn’t get any stupider…”

    Oct 1, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Well, the chances of Charles Barkley and TNT getting a one-on-one sit down with LeBron just fell to below zero… Charles Barkley went on WIP in Philadelphia with Howard Eskin and Ike Reese, primarily to talk about football because… sorry, don’t have an answer for that one. But Barkley talked McNabb coming back to Philly…

  23. Charles Barkley admits he took money in college. Yawn.

    Sep 17, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    So is the NCAA going to go back and make Auburn forfeit wins from 1982?

If a…

  24. Pat Riley fires back at Charles Barkley, Stan Van Gundy and all you Heat haters

    Sep 10, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    Pat Riley is done biting his tongue. He’s spent the last two months listening to people criticize his players and their wanting to play on one team and he’s had it. Not as much with the media and bloggers — although I have yet to receive a bouquet of roses — but with the people…

  25. USA v. Angola preview: Charles Barkley was right about Angola, it is in trouble

    Sep 5, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    The USA has not had to be an impressive team to win in the group play portion of the FIBA World Championships. They have been so much more skilled and athletic than the teams they faced (save Brazil) that they could basically coast. But entering the 16-team knockout stage of the World Championships Monday things….…
