Barkley gets punked

Consider the source but it's still funny.

"Odds-on, Charles didn't even watch the second half," a network staffer said with a shrug of resignation. "That's why we like it when Magic [and now Kobe] shows up. We actually get to talk and learn some basketball."

Notes column contributor Danny Collins, "Kobe made Barkley look like a dunce at halftime when he nailed the key to San Antonio saving its season, Manu Ginobili's defensive hustle . . . contrasted with Barkley's monotonous guarantee Dallas would win the game."

Kobe did get the better of The Chuckster. After the game, Kobe told Charles, "We all know why you're really upset, Charles."

I actually like Charles and think he makes some intelligent points. Yeah, they're usually pretty general but...

Yeah Charles didnt seem to have anything to back up his argument. The night he said all that stuff it seemed he said it just to say it and didnt put any thought into it. Kobe did have some good analyst on the games.

Kobe did hit the nail on the head and I remember Chuck saying Dallas was going to win. When Chuck said that, I knew we were going to win game 6.

I'm confused, doesn't 'Odds-on' mean he's just taking a guess?

Yeah, but the expression means the odds are in favor of something. In other words, more likely than not Barkley didn't even watch the second half of the game.

Far more interesting part of the article:

For Dallas, it was right there. Up six at the break at home, the Spurs getting less than nothing from Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Bruce Bowen in foul trouble. However, the Mavericks went passive and cold after intermission; it's an ominous sign when Keith Van Horn is your second- best clutch shooter.

Nowitzki (26 points, 21 rebounds, five assists) did so much on one leg, he was named an honorary flamingo. Imagine if he'd had some help. Devin Harris and Jerry Stackhouse were a combined 7 for 29. The Mavs desperately needed the suspended Jason Terry.

Wow Kobe less emotional as an announcer than Barkley?

I wonder how much Barkley lost on his bet considering he has lost $10 million gambling. Casino managers must be turning cartwheels when they see Sir Charles heading their way
