I guess I never had a problem with Barkley, the ballplayer. Off the court is where I have a problem. Everything is always about himself. At halftime of a TNT game, he would rather talk about how fat he is than break down the first half of the game. Initially, he was sort of entertaining in an annoying sort of way. How can the guy continue to work year after year without ever adding anything to a basketball conversation? Also, I don't see how a guy can brag about losing over $10 million gambling.
