Ever since Charles Barkley‘s iconic and controversial Nike commercial declaring “I am not a role model,” it’s become clear he’s an opinionated person.
Over the years, the former basketball player has said some outrageous things. He’s unapologetic, thought-provoking, and completely comfortable in his world. Last night, the outspoken baller pissed off “nerds” while talking about the Rockets GM, calling him an idiot who believes in numbers.
“A bunch of guys who have never played the game, and they never got the girls in high school.”
“First of all I’ve always believed analytics was crap,” Barkley said on TNT’s postgame coverage of the Rockets’ 127-118 win over the Phoenix Suns. “You know I never mention the Rockets as legitimate contenders ’cause they’re not. And listen, I wouldn’t know Daryl Morey if he walked into this room right now.”
This is one of Charles’ lighter moments.
He called the Ferguson looters scumbags, he called the women of San Antonio fat, and he even called himself a dumbass.
Charles Barkley is the gift that keeps on giving, so we decided to pull ten of his most memorable quotes. Check them out below.
