First of all..the Hornets are playing way better, with way better attendance in OKC than they have in a while.

Second, Charles Barkley is from Alabama...not doggin' Alabama....but where does he get off calling Oklahoma a wasteland?

OK..rant over...I feel better now

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry blasted Charles Barkley on Friday after the former NBA star said the state was "no place for black people."

"Obviously, Charles Barkley doesn't know what he's talking about," Henry said in a statement. "Anyone who follows Barkley knows he's notorious for saying ridiculous things that have no basis in fact, and this case is a perfect example."

Barkley, now a TNT analyst, made his comments during a discussion about New Orleans Hornets rookie Chris Paul on the network's All-Star selection show.

"The Oklahoma Sooners and the Hornets are the only brothers in town," Barkley said.

Barkley also teased Paul, asking if he had chickens and cows in his yard.

The Hornets temporarily relocated to Oklahoma City this season following the damage to New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. Last month, the NBA announced that the Hornets will play 35 games in Oklahoma City and six in New Orleans in 2006-07.

IIRC, Charles Barkley is a Republican.

Barkley seems drunk most of his time on the air, and the dude barely makes sense sober. He makes up his mind about what he is going to say somewhere toward the end of his sentences. Dudes’ a buffoon, don't take him so seriously, no one else does.

PS, go Lakers.

Barkley likes to joke around and give people shit but he's a good guy. He is also a strong conservative and supports RTKBA.

He never has been one to be able to brain check what is going to flow out of his oral cavity next.

Charles "Bench-Rider" Barkley? I got no use for him.

We traded away a lot of good talent for that whiney prick.
