Charles Barkley gives the middle finger on TNT

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks


If there is a more convincing example of why the seven-second delay is a good idea for broadcasts than TNT's Charles Barkley, I am blissfully unaware of it.

Last night, Chuckles gave the entire viewing audience the one-finger salute during a discussion about Kobe Bryant's bent digits. When co-host Ernie Johnson said that Bryant's finger had a ton of bumps and bends in it, Barkley scoffed, saying all players have messed-up fingers. Johnson then asked to see the free-speech enthusiast's hands.

Big mistake.

Johnson implored Barkley to say the middle-finger showing was an April Fool's Day prank, but Barkley wasn't having it.

The best part of the whole video is Kenny Smith, who looks like he wants to crawl into a hole somewhere. You'd think he'd be used to the always unpredictable Barkley's ways.

THE OLD SHOE IN THE MOUTH ROUTINE, AND THE SAD PART IS, AT FIRST HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HE DID WRONG, HE IS GOOD A LAUGHING AT HIMSELF!
HE HAS FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES!

Among the dumbest men in all of America---but sure loves his street sex. Thanks for teaching Tiger everything he knows. And cascading the lie he told you in your book about his overcoming racism as a kindergartner. You think for a minute Tiger's HO chasing Robot daddy would have let any kid, or school get away with what Tiger claimed was done to him? He a bigger liar than you be Charles.

Disgraceful men, but not as disgraceful as Phil Knight of Nike who heaped these "heroes", along with that other son of a HO chaser, Michael Jordan, heaped upon us all as people to "Be Like"...

Phil Knight and Nike---Never again. Oh, and the Sports Industry (terry boers?) who covered and covered for these guys, who now claim "they saw it all" yet never mumbled a word of it, but were scooped by the likes of TMZ and the National Enquirer---shameful, the whole lot of you.
