Charles Barkley is arguably one of the most well rounded NBA stars of our generation.
Once adored as an eleven time NBA All-Star, two time Olympic gold medalist, and the player that threw that one guy through a plate glass window for throwing a cup of ice, Sir Charles might be better loved post-retirement for his compulsive gambling, DUI conviction and his healthy appetite for punishingly unhealthy cuisine.
Love him or not, no one can argue Barkley’s indispensable role as a studio pundit for TNT’s NBA broadcasts. His insight is timeless and true. His charisma and storytelling? Boundless. His appetite for junk food? Insatiable.
Devoted to Sir Charles is the first of this recurring top five to publish highlights of his commentary for those unlucky enough to have missed his TNT broadcast live.
This edition: Game four of the NBA Western Conference Finals, Los Angeles Lakers @ Phoenix Suns. (LAL 106, PHO 115, Series 2-2)
