Things Charles Barkley Said Last Night...

"Hey Kevin, let me tell you somethin'. There are subliminal messages, and there are real messages. Like if I hit somebody in the head with a hammer, that's a real message. When I offer you Altoids..."

***

Kevin Harlan: "Here is Hakim Warrick, playing with the Grizzlies, from Syracuse University."
Charles: "I gotta call Jim Boeheim, they gotta get a weight room up there."

***

"I told you, when I saw (Dirk Nowitzki) in Germany before he got to the NBA, I told him, I'll give you any amount of money you want to go to Auburn."

***

Reggie Miller: "Gonzaga. That's my dark horse. Gonzaga."
Charles: "They ain't that dark."

***

"When you play for the Wizards, (Gilbert Arenas) is like Michael Jackson... he's playin' with a lot of Tito Jacksons."

***

Kevin Harlan: "(Andre Iguodala) had 9 dunks, and 4 threes. He was on fire."
Charles: "He wasn't on fire, he was just excited he got to shoot in a game."

***

"One thing (Nate Robinson)'s got goin' in his favor, he can't get depressed. He plays for the Knicks. Trust me, nothing's going to shock him now. His emotions are as low as they can go."
