Charles Barkley Rumors

All NBA Players

LaVar Ball: You’re going to have to talk to me because I’ve got three boys and they’ve got all the same agent. So it’s better to be on the good side than the bad side. Like Charles Barkley, he’s been talking crazy. ‘LaVar is a bad father, this and that.’ And I’m just, like, ‘Don’t even talk about Gelo going to China because you’ve been in jail in Arizona. You have kids that you don’t even talk about. You have a daughter nobody knows about.’ A lot of things he’s done bad. I was a fan of Charles because of how hard he played. And now, he’s doing all this talking like Stephen A. Smith.
Turner Sports says its “Inside the NBA” studio team will call a Christmas night game in Los Angeles along with its other usual duties. Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson will be at Staples Center for the Lakers’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. They will call the nightcap of the league’s five-game holiday schedule in addition to their regular pregame, halftime and postgame coverage.
Thursday’s “NBA on TNT” broadcast should be interesting. The main event between Lonzo Ball’s Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers figures to be a spectacle, but don’t discount the in-studio undercard, which could feature Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith hashing out their own issues with LaVar Ball. In Shaq’s case, it’s being denied Big Baller status by the Big Baller Brand CEO. For Chuck, it’s comments he made on ESPN radio questioning whether the Ballfather is, in fact, a “legit father” for “exploiting his kids.” The Jet now finds himself in the fray after turning Barkley’s stance on its ear.
