I'm not a role model.
Barkley quotes
Kids are great. That's one of the best things about our business, all the kids you get to meet. It's a shame they have to grow up to be regular people and come to the games and call you names.
Barkley
I was going to sue her for defamation of character, but then I realized that I have no character.




Barkley Charles quotes
I'd have played against him (Len Bias) for the next 14 years. I would have been in my prime and he would have been in his. I'll never forget what he looked like. He was a 'Wow!' player. When Maryland played and was on television, I watched. It was like, 'I need to watch this guy; I'll be seeing him real soon.' . . . It was just shocking. Thing is, cocaine was huge then. My brother had been in and out of rehab a few times. . . . It was a popular drug at the time. And guys I was playing against, like John Lucas and Michael Ray Richardson and John Drew had done cocaine. I was thinking: 'What the hell is up with this cocaine? I should try this once to see what it was all about.' Then, we heard the reports were that Bias only used it once . . . that it was his first time. When I heard that, it scared me to death . . . scared the daylights out of me. It scared me into not trying it even once, not going anywhere near it.

You know it's gone to hell, when the best rapper out there is a white guy and the best golfer is a black guy.
Charles Barkley quotes
Anytime a fan touches you, you have the right to beat the hell out of him.

I don't know much about Angola, but I know one thing, they're in a lot of trouble.
Barkley Charles quotes
You can't start a diet in the middle of the week, that's just stupid.
Barkley
It's great to be hosting SNL again. I hosted sixteen years ago. Back then I was in great shape, I was coming off an MVP season with the Phoenix Suns - now, I play bad golf, drink, sometimes I get arrested.

Only poor people go to jail.
