Damn, damn, damn! Charles Barkley isn't the first guy to say this—peep YouTube to see others who have tried to compare Sam Cassell with Gollum from Lord of the Rings—but we're pretty sure he's the first to do it on live TV. It's so wrong…and, yet, so funny.

And it got us to thinking long and hard about the question that Barkley posed here. "Have you ever seen Sam Cassell and Gollum at the same place?" he asked.

Hmmm…He's got a point, folks!
