Happy birthday, Charles Barkley! The NBA Hall of Famer and TNT personality turned 51 on Thursday.
To celebrate the Round Mound of Rebound's arrival on Earth on Feb. 20, 1963, we here at Bleacher Report have cobbled together a collection of his silliest and most embarrassing moments.
Not from his broadcast career, of course. That would be too easy. You don't have to search high and low to find instances of Sir Charles saying or doing something stupid on national television. That's just what happens when you put one of the biggest and loudest personalities in basketball history in front of a camera.
Instead, we decided to fire up the way-back machine (i.e., the Internet, especially YouTube) to find some of Chuck's least flattering outtakes from his playing days with the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets.
Here's to 51 years of Barkley and many more happy, healthy and entertaining ones yet to come. There have been rumblings in the past about Barkley leaving TV to pursue other career paths, though he seems to be settled comfortable in his current role.
That is great news for basketball fans everywhere. Whether you agree with the Chuckster or not, there's no denying just how entertaining a figure he has been, is and hopefully will be for many more years.
