Link to Barkley AZ article
This is not really a big deal, but it is news. I think it's not a big deal because Barkley has done so much more - that involves poor judgement - or no judgement at all really, that I hesitated to even post this...but...it's a blog and I like to type.
I've always been a fan of Barkley the basketball player. He was tough and got it done, he's similar to Shaq that he's one of the very few tough (big man) players the suns have had that can play at a high level also. But, as a person, it's hit or miss with what he says. I found the below link.
Link to some barkely quotes
some good plain quotes there, some very dumb ones
this was one of the best
"You know it's going to hell when the best rapper out there is white and the best golfer is black"
this was a dumb one
"We don't need refs, but I guess white guys need something to do."
I'll be really clear on this, yes Jordan is the best player ever...but there have been a ton of great white players and there'd be more but I'd guess they (young white kids) get steered away from dreaming about the nba and steered into school much more often than inner city kids with less chances of going somewhere educationally, simply because their school system isn't comparable..sadly.
then another great one
"Poor people cannot rely on the government to come to help you in times of need. You have to get your education. Then nobody can control your destiny."
and another great one
"I just wish all these young black kids would realize how significant it is to stop acting a fool out there, killing each other, not getting their education. You know, people have died to put us in a situation to be successful."
anyways...I hope the test comes back he wasn't legally drunk
if we really want problems like that again, we can bring back marbury to do stupid stuff off the court, he was an all star in that regard
