The always quotable Charles Barkley (former NBA star; current TNT basketball analyst) is typically candid in a Q&A posted this morning at TNR Online, the website of The New Republic.

I've always enjoyed Barkley as an outspoken athlete and tv personality!

This was a great article. I think he was honest and impartial.

Barkley is always a good read. Although he is not the most eloquent speaker in the world, his bluntness and willing to say it like it is is refreshing in this age of poitically correct sound bites!
