When he first returned to TNT following his drunk driving arrest, Barkley was a little quieter than normal. I imagine he knew everyone was watching and held back a bit.
Now, he's back in full force.
When discussing Chicago's Ben Gordon hitting the floor hard after a foul during Sunday's Chicago win against Boston, it was classic Barkley. "That's why we play basketball, though," he said. "We're not baseball players."
I don't know why but I laughed out loud after he said that.
It was vintage Barkley.
Good to have him back.
