Sir Charles

Everyone’s favorite NBA analyst (save for the “husky” women of San Antonio), Charles Barkley, went on ESPN radio’s Waddle & Silvy Show today to talk some basketball, and during the course of the interview, reiterated his intentions to become a GM when his contract with TNT expires in two years.

From The Score

I think people know I wanna be a GM and I’m going to be a GM.

You know, I got two years left on my television deal and I told TNT that I’m probably gonna let it go after two years. Not that I don’t love my job, I got the best job, I just think 17 years is long enough to do anything, to be honest with you.

You know, when I took the job, I told them I was gonna do it for four years. I’m in year 15 now. And I think 17 years is long enough to do this job. I love TNT, love working with Ernie, Kenny and Shaq. I don’t have a Plan B, I wanna be a GM, I’ve made that perfectly clear.

We knew at some point that Barkley would leave TNT, but to hear him actually say it is kind of depressing. It will be a sad day for basketball when Sir Charles is no longer on television, because the guy is hands down the best, and most entertaining, analyst in sports.

    Barley as a GM would be fined constantly for his big mouth, and might just have the franchise being sued by an outside source as well for the same reasons as the prior.

    We thinks, Sir Charles want to be a GM in Cleveland, as you can see how he is constantly pushing for King James to return to Cleveland also because they keep getting the number 1 draft pick there too!!!
