Charles Barkley...

...is back.

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.

Barkley


Charles Barkley was arrested on suspicion of DUI and there is lots of glee, it seems, on message boards and across cyberspace.

If you are happy about this, it actually says more about you as a person, than it does Barkley.

If he did this, he should be put in jail. Drunk drivers are a plague.

However, what's equally troublesome is the reaction of people. There are many, it seems, who want Barkley to greatly suffer and their desire for these things has nothing to do with his alleged act. They want him to burn for his views and are utilizing this arrest as a window to attack him.

These people have brought race into this conversation where it didn't exist and that tells you a lot.

So when you're posting about Barkley don't hide your disgust behind fake outrage. Just say you're happy he was arrested because you don't like him or his views.
