Charles Barkley is one entertaining dude.
The former NBA great currently works for TNT as an analyst. He also endorses Weight Watchers. You’ve probably seen the commercial where he talks about getting healthy and tells viewers to lose weight “like a man.”
The “round mound of rebound” must have forgotten that slogan when he was captured on camera saying that Weight Watchers is a “scam.”
During a recent game between the Miami Heat and the Atlanta Hawks, cameras continued to roll during a commercial break as Barkley talked with fellow analysts Reggie Miller and Kevin Harlan about the Weight Watchers program.
“I’m not giving away no free money Kev,” Barkley told Harlan. “I thought this was the greatest scam going–getting paid for watching sports. This Weight Watchers thing is a bigger scam.”
Barkley and Harlan then went on to trash the Hawks.
“I can’t stand watching this Atlanta Hawks team play,” Barkley said.
“This game is terrible,” added Harlan. “Look at this team–31% [shooting], God almighty!”
Miller was the only one of the three that didn’t have anything bad to say about the Hawks, but Barkley kept going.
“The Hawks aint got nothing but a bunch of nice guys,” Barkley continued. “If I were the Hawks, they’re the team to me I’d try to anything to get Dwight Howard. Say ‘you can have anybody on our team.’”
