  I freaking love Charles Barkley.  Probably just as much as I love hating the Lakers, and he’s def right up there with my adoration of the Big Fella.  My mother knows this, which is why I don’t understand why she called me this morning... Read More


Lol! These are classic Littal! lol!

ah man lol the mans a comedic genius

Wow, my boyfriend Drew would love these!!

My boyfriend Martin would love these too!

I also thought this one was classic:

"My wife once asked me why I vote for republicans when they only help rich people.
I said hey, we're rich"

Or something thereabouts

You forgot "I used to be a republican, before they went crazy"

I'm from Finland!

Oh, nevermind.

Another classic:

Reporter: Charles, how is your back feeling?

Charles: My back feels as bad as your face looks.


I believe that I would enjoy seeing him walk on stage with Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse. I would bu the DVD.

This made my day. Barkley has to be the funniest commentator in the NBA. Can't wait for the season to start.


Charles Barkley.....a typical nigger being a typical nigger.

Comes with a line of sports apparel, great logo, and the site. A little catchier than blacksportsonline. Check it out.

Sir Charles for Hater of the Year. Hate-Hate-Hate!

As he cut in front of me in line last month at a Democratic National Committee event in Denver:

"Man, I bet you 20 million dollars they don't make us wait in this line."

You missed one! While playing for the Suns and after a victory over the Rockets, the reporter asked "How did yall contain Olajuwon".

"We were all over him like that cheap suit you got."

my favorite was about 4 years ago..

half time at the all-star break, the camera focuses on Sam Cassel tying his shoes as they go to commercial. Charles yells,"IT'S LORD OF THE RING, IT'S LORD OF THE RINGS!"

being interviewed in advance of an nba playoff game he was about to announce, he was asked about the prospects of the two teams, and he said "team x (i forget which one it was) will win this game unless it's been fixed by the league."

Me thinks Barkey just has way too much money


That's hilarious!

How about:
"You know, people are funny...and by funny I mean stupid."
Good ol' Chuck

What about all the quotes about Yao Ming and kissing the ass? Who's ass was it again? I cant remember...

wow this guy is dumb as fuck

dumb nigger

"Yeah I regret we weren't on a higher floor"

Get all his money off, and I think that he'll be a LOT less funnier.

My favorite Barkley moment was when he was talking about seeing Dirk play in Europe before he came to the NBA.

CB: "I went over to him and said 'I will give you any amount of money that you want if you go to Auburn.'"

EJ: "Charles, isn't that an NCAA violation?"

CB: "Maaaaan. We in the SEC! If you ain't cheatin', you ain't trying!. We got Florida, Georgia, Alabama....you know they cheatin'!"

awesome I have a whole new respect for Charles.

wow this is great, characters like charles barkley make the game entertaining
#1 was fkn hilarious!!!!

OMG...that's fantastic. Thanks for the list!

Two more:

(talking about Sam Cassell) He's everything that can go wrong with the human face.


(after losing a guy) This is the type of game that makes you want to go home and beat your wife.

Charles Barkley one and only.
Simply the best!!!!!
