Charles Barkley ready to run an NBA team; we're all for it!

Mark D. Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Current TNT wordsmith and former rebounding machine Charles Barkley told a Phoenix radio station that he's going to be an NBA general manager someday because it's not brain surgery and therefore he's qualified.

There's a pretty well established pattern here in the NBA world. Charles Barkley opens his mouth. Words pour out. We write about those words because they are most likely ridiculous and you care about them.

It's not brain surgery.

Here's the latest words with the associated irrefutable logic of a guy who in his playing days threw fans through windows and in more recent times has had "issues" with gambling and drinking and stuff oral sex.

Don't get me wrong. The Chuckster is both one of my favorite basketball players of all time and THE BEST analyst on TV today, and that includes the NBA, NFL, WWE, politics, weather, knitting and competitive eating.

But "not being brain surgery" is hardly qualification for, you know, running an NBA team.

Then again, it would make our lives so much more fun, so let's get this rolling!
