Barkley fails in Popovich interview

Charles Barkley is doing sideline interviews now (for some reason), and if it proves anything about sideline reporting, it's that not even being in the Basketball Hall of Fame gets you any extra time with the coach. Barkley, on sideline duty for TNT, attempted to ask San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich three questions, which is 50 percent more questions than a sideline reporter...

Pop Informs Charles Barkley About The 2 Question Rule

Have to hand it to Chuck here.  "My bad".  This is why the world needs more Charles Barkley and another reminder that Gregg Popovich is head and shoulders above everyone else in everything they do.  Oh you want me to play my stars on a TNT broadcast in Miami against the Heat?

Gregg Popovich Cuts Off Charles Barkley During Interview (Video)

Barkley said he is a fan of Mike D’Antoni as a coach, but he disagrees with the way the Lakers treated Phil Jackson. “Well, I just thought they disrespected Phil Jackson,” Barkley told The Mike...

Wizards finally get their first win

After their worst start in history, the Washington Wizards became a national punch line. On TNT, Charles Barkley compared them with the Washington Generals, and a local newspaper had photos of fans wearing paper bags over their heads at Monday's 26-point loss to San Antonio.

Gregg Popovich will not let Charles Barkley ask an extra question!

Any somewhat dedicated fan of the NBA will know the league's toughest task isn't trying to stop LeBron James on a fast break, it isn't trying to guard Kevin Durant 1 on 1, it's the in-game Gregg Popovich interview.  We've seen him shut down sideline reporters like Craig Sager and David Aldridge numerous times, but last night was a unique opportunity to see Charles...

Barkley backs Murray as best of '12

Never winning a championship weighs on Charles Barkley, even in retirement. He might say it does not bother him, but he openly admits to rooting for athletes who have never won the big one. Or as he calls them, athletes on the "sh- list." When Sports Illustrated asked Barkley for his choice for Sportsman of the Year, the ringless Hall of Famer went with a guy who finally...

Video: Barkley interviews Popovich

When San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich wasn't drawing the wrath of NBA Commissioner David Stern during last night's Spurs-Heat clash, Pop was being his usual self during the in-game interviews with TNT.

Charles Barkley Thinks Nets Are Best Team in New York, Wants Rex Ryan to Stick Around With Jets

It’s the time of year when many fans and analysts are making bold proclamations about their teams. Charles Barkley? Well, he’s here to announce that the Brooklyn Nets are the best team — in New York. Considering the only contender the Nets have in that horse race is the often-hapless Knicks, maybe it wasn’t such a big deal to anoint Brooklyn. But Barkley was emphatic that...

Shootaround: Welp, that was fun

San Antonio Spurs (13-3) vs. Miami Heat (10-3) 8 p.m./TNT Um, so this game got a lot less interesting. I mean, it might be fun to watch because Charles Barkley is calling the game, but Gregg Popovich's decision to send Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili home to end this road trip for San Antonio takes a lot of the juice out of this game. This is not a 13-3 Spurs...
