Michael Jordan was spotted (not wearing something truly awful for once) playing beer pong last week and the Internet was all abuzz. This was a big deal for some reason. This didn’t really register on our radar until TMZ put a camera in front of Charles Barkley’s face last night and asked him about MJ’s…

Following up on AU’s fantastic reminder that the NBA Draft Lottery is a tricky thing, I thought it worthwhile to point out another smart person’s take on Andrew Wiggins. Sir Charles spoke to Sports Illustrated (via CSN) recently about the Sixers and their future. The quote that I enjoyed in particular was when asked about…

Sixers legend Charles Barkley is never one to be shy about his opinions on all things sports. He was a guest on 94 WIP on Thursday afternoon and talked, among many other things, about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situation. Not surprisingly, Sir Charles has a strong opinion. We’ll update this post with more from Chuck’s…

I’ve been wondering for years why nobody has started a blog entirely dedicated to the amazing things Charles Barkley says and does on a regular basis. Chuck is like the chocolate river in Willy Wonka. The goodness just keeps flowing. His latest web gem is video of him grinding with a middle-aged woman at Ray…

Charles Barkley’s golf swing is so bad that if you were in attendance over the weekend to watch him play at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, he may have given you a crisp hundred dollar bill. Really. According to BuzzFeed who rounded up a bunch of tweets from the event, the former Philadelphia…

I have no interest in using this post to debate the merits of the George Zimmerman trial, but Sir Charles’ take is worth mention. Barkley was on CNBC’s Closing Bell on Thursday and in a one-on-one interview with host Maria Bartiromo was asked if he “had any thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict.” Without any…

With Dwight Howard and Josh Smith officially off the market, and Chris Paul long since committed to re-upping with the Clippers, the NBA’s off-season attention turns to our very own Andrew Bynum, the ultimate wildcard in this year’s free agency. Yahoo reports that Bynum has already been offered a two-year, $24 million offer from Cleveland…

When I talked a couple columns ago about how Thaddeus Young should probably considered tradeable by Sixers management, and potentially included in prospective off-season deals, I didn’t mean that he should be traded for just anybody. Indeed, the Sixers are in a place right now where they’re not in any particular rush to either improve…

Saturday Night Live’s skit on Michael Jordan’s recent wedding, featuring the likes of “Charles Barkley” and a bunch of coked-up halftime jugglers, was mostly forgettable. But it did feature a performance from Jay Pharoah as Dikembe Mutombo that is at least worth a click to check out. We’re suckers for all things finger-wag.

Chris Wheeler is obviously not the best broadcaster in the biz (that’d be the “Boom Goes the Dynamite Guy”), but he’s also not the worst (that’d be Tim McCarver). He’s just Chris Wheeler. Just plain ole, normal, not that interesting, perfectly fine, whatever, he’s a white dude, Chris Wheeler.
And it’s not like we expect the Phillies to hire the greatest commentators in the country, but we do at least expect them to employ the greatest Chris Wheeler. So I figured why not do some internet sleuthing to see how the Phillies’ Chris Wheeler stacked up against other Chris Wheelers.

As if we all needed another reason to love Sir Charles any more. This video of Shaquille O’Neal and Barkley having a bench-press off in some strange promotion for that new Marky Mark and The Rock movie is not embeddable, but if you click over to NBA.com you can watch the competition get serious.

Having Charles Barkley in the mix on CBS/TNT/TruTV/TBS’ coverage of March Madness has been both a blessing and a curse. Sure, we all want more Chuck in our lives at all times, but his prep work and analysis of the college hoop game has left a bit to be desired over the past few years. That said, Charles almost always brings the funny and I don’t know what it is about this commercial, but the idea of Sir Charles calling a bunch of little kids hooping it up in the driveway sounds a lot like what I imagined in my head when I was six years old playing in the driveway in Havertown.

The national media made a big hubub over the weekend about Michael Jordan turning 50 years old. Perhaps that is an occasion worth making a big deal about in the sports world. Who knows? Maybe they needed something to talk about other than Muggsy Bogues and meatball sandwiches. Maybe M.J. deserves that kind of attention.…
Feb 14, 2013, 2:20 PM EST
The only thing we can think of that could make the “Barkley at 50″ special Comcast SportsNet will be airing next week better is if it was 2.5 hours longer. Okay, and maybe if that was a Yuengling instead of a Diet Coke in front of him. Seriously, Sir Charles sitting around telling old stories for all of us to enjoy and ripping on how bad his former teammates were? Instant DVR.
A Cartoon In Which Andrew Bynum Gets Kidnapped By Charles Barkley, Allen Iverson, and Ilya Bryzgalov. Okay Sure.
Feb 14, 2013, 11:27 AM EST
First of all, the premise to this cartoon is a little bit hard to believe. I mean, in what bizarro world do Allen Iverson and Charles Barkley have the motivation to stage a kidnapping. And of a 7-foot giant no less.

Sir Charles Barkley was a guest of Mike Missanelli on 97.5 the Fanatic yesterday afternoon and it was a truly awesome 20 minutes of radio. Chuck was in town to call the Sixers-Spurs game on Monday night for TNT, so the two talk quite a bit about that. But as always with Charles, the topic of conversation was wonderfully all over the place.
“I love these people. I came here as a little teeny bopper and played here for eight great years. It was great to be back and see the excitement in the building,” Barkley said of being back in town, despite complaining of the frigid temperatures. Some highlights below.
Would he work to re-sign Andrew Bynum?

In the latest edition of Charles being Charles, we now know that 11-time NBA All-Star and one-time NBA MVP Charles Barkley does not know how to tie a tie. So obviously TNT cameras caught Sixers’ beat writer Dei Lynam tying it for him prior to the Sixers’ nationally televised game with the Spurs on Monday night. Underrated portion of the clip sees Neil Hartman just watching in amusement as Charles tries and fails. [video inside]

Charles Barkley’s Christmas Card from Funny Or Die’s The Occasional from Charles Barkley Good job, good effort, I guess. I got quite excited when I saw Charles Barkley had a Christmas-themed Funny or Die video up on the Internet this evening, but after watching it, I was left with a sour taste of eggnog gone…

No, that post title was not the subject line of a spam email we received this morning. And we barely even sensationalized it at all. In fact, we probably toned it down a bit.
Sir Charles Barkley’s new Weight Watchers advertisement is clearly targeting a very small demographic. It suggests that for every 35 pounds you lose, you gain an inch of… something else.
Oct 19, 2012, 5:46 PM EST
Charles Barkley was a guest on 94 WIP this afternoon with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow to talk everything sports. From Jrue Holiday turning into an All-Star point guard for the next 10 seasons to winning money on last night’s Seattle Seahawks game thanks to the Niners declining a safety to Michael Jordan’s legendary trash talk, Chuck touched on it all.
It doesn’t get much better than Barkley unscripted. Perhaps the best nugget to come out of today’s call was when Sir Charles went into a tale about when he played Jordan in the NBA Finals.

Here’s an amazing video of Sir Charles Barkley singing Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road” at what appears to be some sort of karaoke bar only to have the Boyz from Philly themselves come up to help him out a bit. It’s pretty awesome.

Sir Charles and Shaq’s highly anticipated #shirtoff went down last night on TNT. It was a great day for man-boob lovers.

Evan teamed up with Sixers legend Charles Barkley to help his squad defeat Team Shaq. ET shot an impressive 8-9 from the field, good for 16 points, and added 11 boards and 7 assists.
