Barkley Admits Gambling Problem

With golfer John Daly recently admitting he has lost over $50 million gambling, Sir Charles comes out and admits he has probably gambled away at least $10 million.

"Do I have a gambling problem? Yeah, I do have a gambling problem but I
don’t consider it a problem because I can afford to gamble. It’s just a
stupid habit that I’ve got to get under control, because it’s just not
a good thing to be broke after all of these years," he added.

I think most males like to throw down a bet on Sunday’s during football season, but I can’t imagine what it must be like for these filthy rich athletes to throw money around.  You have to love Barkley’s candor though, the guy has balls.
