  1. Ed Rendell is Keeping Busy (Charles Barkley Dissed Larry Bird)

    Apr 24, 2008, 10:52 AM EDT

    With the Sixers returning to the City of Brotherly Love this weekend to take on the Pistons at the Wachovia Center, Governor Ed Rendell has decreed that all Philadelphians should call I-76 by its proper name. So we can all be I-76ers this weekend and, you know, enjoy the gridlock! >>Get Along 76ers [Hugging Harold…

  2. Vote For Sir Charles!

    Apr 10, 2008, 1:31 PM EDT

    If you’re not a daily Deadspin reader, you may not be familiar with their Media Approval Ratings. Up for rating today is the Round Mound of Rebound who spends most of his time on TNT talking about today’s NBA chumps. We are hoping Charles Barkley can break the record for most highly approved. So head…

  3. Barkley Gets DUI Out of the Way Before New Year’s Rush

    Mar 2, 2008, 10:47 AM EDT

    Charles Barkley, a perennial favorite character of ours, is in a bit of trouble again. Seems the Round Mound had a few cocktails, ran a stop sign, and got himself arrested. I’ll echo the sentiment of Spencer Hall of The Sporting Blog… Let this be a reminder as you head out tonight, and find some…

  4. Sir Charles a Victim of Webber Shoe Attack

    Feb 19, 2008, 1:00 PM EDT

    That reviled Chris Webber, who came to Philly and helped blow this Sixers team up, tried to attack one of Philadelphia’s most beloved former stars last night on TNT. The Round Mound of Rebound shows that he’s still quick on his feet, er… on his big fat ass I suppose. Barkley deftly avoids the shoe…

  5. Video: Sir Charles on David Letterman Show

    Feb 16, 2008, 7:37 AM EDT

    My new motto: More Sir Charles, All the Time. Barkley appeared on Friday night’s Late Show with David Letterman and was his typical humorous self.  They touched on many topics including Charles’ weight issues, gambling issues, the Shaq trade, his support of Barrack Obama, and his opinions on Paul Shaffer’s Craig Sager-esque suit. Some choice…

  7. Charles Barkley drops “about 400,000″ 100k on the Super Bowl

    Feb 12, 2008, 9:27 AM EDT

    (Updated at the bottom) Charles Barkley called into Jim Rome is Burning yesterday and admitted he was "drepressed" from listening to the so-called experts on ESPN, who prompted the round mound to switch his bet on the Super Bowl from the Giants to the Patriots.  Observe: Four Hundred-Thousand?!!!??! That’s more than I make in a…

  8. Charles Barkley to Save the World in 2041: ‘Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden’

    Jan 23, 2008, 2:00 PM EDT

    No, not as the Governor of Alabama but as a video game superhero of sorts.  Watch the trailer below. From Joystiq: We hope you’ve cleared the rest of your 2008, because the epic story of post-cyberpocalypse Neo New York in the wake of the great B-Ball purge of 2041 threatens to own the entirety of…

    Jan 22, 2008, 9:50 AM EDT

  12. Sir Charles Barkley On Captain Noah

    Mar 6, 2007, 10:24 PM EDT

    Fact of the Day: I was once on the Captain Noah show in third grade for a project in Ms. Sharkey’s class. Circa 1988, I built an exact replica of Congress Hall with materials such as toothpicks and white out (white out over red paint makes bricks!).  It was an incredible piece of craftsmanship, unlike…

  15. Sir Charles on Conan Last Night

    Dec 31, 2006, 11:55 AM EDT

    The world could always use a little more Barkley.  He recently appeared on Conan O’brien show.  Apparently the only thing football is good for is betting on it.  Part II is here.  In part two Sam Cassell looks like Gollum, the Celtics were the ugliest team ever, and jub-jub.

  16. Charles Barkley on SNL

    Dec 15, 2006, 9:30 AM EDT

    Okay, so it’s a sketch featuring a fake Sir Charles and it’s not particularly funny but news has been slow lately.  (This digital short actually made me chuckle.  See also Dane Cook.)

  17. Charles on Gnarls

    Jun 20, 2006, 12:46 PM EDT

    In case you were wondering what Sir Charles thought about Gnarls: CHARLES BARKLEY says he’s "flattered and honored" to be the namesake of Gnarls Barkley, the hip-hop/rock duo comprising Danger Mouseand Cee-Lo. The Round Mound of Rebound says he has their CD "St. Elsewhere," and "it’s pretty good, an interesting mix of rock and rap."…

Yeah, I do have a gambling problem but I don’t consider it a problem because I can afford to gamble. It’s…

There are subliminal messages, and…

    Jan 31, 2006, 9:30 AM EDT

    Charles Barkley was on 660 WFAN this morning chatting it up with Don Imus about racism, his book, and the lackluster NBA.  Charles has a best selling book which just went to paperback titled Who’s Afraid of a Large Black Man which he had some help from PTI’s Michael Wilbon in writing.  The book apparently…
