I should probably start this off by saying that I don't hate Charles Barkley. In fact, I really like the guy. Without him, I'd turn off the 10:30 p.m. NBA games that air every Thursday night on TNT long before midnight. But because Barkley exists—and because he's liable to say just about anything at anytime on Inside the NBA after the 10:30 game ends—I find myself tuning into the post-game shows more often than not and hitting people with "Yo, did you just hear what Chuck said?!" text messages at all hours of the night. And while the people I'm texting have likely grown to hate Barkley, I haven't.
That being said, Barkley isn't for everyone. He's loud. He's opinionated. And if you don't agree with something that he says, he will come after you. Just ask Rockets GM Daryl Morey. Or Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. Or Gabrielle Union. Or…well, you get the point. Barkley has been involved in beefs, both big and small, with a variety of people over the years. So with the Round Mound of Rebound celebrating his 52nd birthday today, we thought it'd be the perfect time to put together A Comprehensive List of Everyone Who Hates Charles Barkley. Consider this our b-day gift to you, Chuck. We hope you like it more than these people like you!
