    Hey Chuck, I have a question for you. First of all I am a Blazers fan but, I am trying to figure out why Rudy Fernandez is playing as much as he is when he is not delivering on offense or defense. He doesn’t shoot when he should and tends to give up on defensive plays. I am not trying to just pick on Rudy but as a team on the road there are plays that the defense gives up on and to advance u can’t do that as a team, oh yeah and to many jump dhots.
    Thx David

  4. Stuart says:

    Hey Sir Charles, you are very critical of Kobe Bryant. Why do you not like him?

  5. MikeJ says:

    Charles, You and Kenny make TNT a better place to watch the NBA on.

    I have a question for you. I am 6’2″ and got my last dunk at the age of 48. How old were you on your last dunk?

  7. Taylor says:

    Hey Charles, right when you retired you had a chance to play with the Lakers. You said that getting a ring with them would be stealing because they were so good. Now that the team is a little older, do you think you can challenge yourself to get back in shape and give the Lakers 15mins a game and finally get that ring you are so often dreaming about?

  8. NECOLA says:

    YOU ARE AN AWESOME JOKER…LOL

  9. KennethM says:

    Charles,

    A few weeks ago, you took some pretty deep stabs at San Antonio, both the team and the city, and I was wondering if, in retrospect, you consider the blows you took to the city unnecessary. I’m a student in D.C. who grew up in SA, and I took offense, I can’t even imagine how much you infuriated the citizens who live there permanently.

  10. alex_ says:

    hi Mr.barkley..i am a celtics fan and i want your opinion about the celtics this year and what do you believe about the heat-celtics series?which team do you believe to win the title this year? keep up the good work thanks..

  11. samuel says:

    a chuck do you think that boston will beat heat if they win the series vs sixers i think because wade and lebron are having a bad playoffs and boston are having a good playoffs with paul and ray and kg and rondo if shaq comes back they are for sure going beat heat boston are going past to shaq is a beast in the paint and i am a boston fan shaq is unstopable in the paint

  12. SteveT says:

    Hey Chuck: The 1st rule of golf (maybe the most important) Feel bad about your golf swing? take a look at Chuck’s, you’ll feel much better about it.

  13. Bobby Dunn says:

    Charles im a Lebron James fan & you really need to stop talking bad about him & his team because you have NO RINGS , & he has alot of time to work on it ! He is way better than you will ever be & the Miami Heats win or lose this year that will only make the Heats stronger!

  14. catherine says:

    why are you so crazy?

  15. catherine says:

    what is your opinion on the mavericks?

  16. ethan says:

    yo chuck, what about the impact of haslem being out for the 76ers series? i think they sweep with haslem. you rule i never in my life have seen a real down to earth cool guy in such a position.you think real and you played real.thank you go heat!

  17. Antonio says:

    hey chuck, my question is why is D-Wade not getting the ball wen the game is on line knowing that he is way more clutcher than LeBron James?. my other one is if LeBron james is the best player in the game how come he is not clutch when the game is on the line?.

  18. Calvin says:

    What do you think about Kevin Durant’s backcourt call?

  19. Calvin says:

    Backcourt call of Kevin Durant has me angered. The first time he didn’t have possession. But doesn’t he go backcourt the second time?

  20. Jim says:

    The referee changed the over and back call on Kevin Durant. But that was the first over and back. If you look at his next steps, he stepped into his half of the court after turning, then back on the line AGAIN, then back into his side of the court AGAIN. Why wasn’t the second set of steps over and back even if the first wasn’t?

  21. Tre says:

    OKC vs Denver. How can you be back court, take your foot from back court – now you are off the back court because your right leg is over the front court and your left leg is now in the air. So now you are consider in front court. Next move you put your left leg back in back court – automatic back court. That was the original call but it was overrulled without a review. Amazing!!!

  22. JOE GRANDBERRY says:

    WHY DO YOU THINK THE LAKERS ARE GOING TO THE FINALS, THEY ARE OLD AND WITH THE UP AND COMING TEAMS DO YOU STILL THINK THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT

    • They will win It.all if these teams can’t finish their games . With kobe and them two biggs their unstoppable . So it what team can stand there down.low game. And besides the west is very weak .

  23. Stephanie says:

    Hope all is well with your family in Leeds, Charles! Keeping everyone in Alabama in my prayers tonight.

    Charles, I know its a little long but please read you may be my last hope i email Nba but no response to this, it is something rather simple but it does affect playground kids, teenagers, and some adults out ther when they play recreational ball they do what there favorite Nba players do, in the Nba games it happens quite a bit, a player or players hit other player in the back of the head usually after a good play, and at times a hard slap, a tap, or they grab there head, i have seen it quite a bit thru out the years, most recently i saw today great player from Oklahoma Kevin Durant get slap around the head like its a tennis ball he got slap in the head not once but about 5 times from a few players after a good play, from his reaction on tv. it seem like he did not like it, on 2-13-11 i saw Kevin Garnet grab Ray Allen’s head to congratulate him after he recieve his the game ball for being the 3 point leader etc. Mr Allen did not seem to like that, why is a grown man grabbing another grown man head like that ? also look at what happen to Marquis Daniel bumping his head on Gilbert Arenas, am reaching here but imagine that happening purposely by another player slapping a players head hard, you guys would not believe how many reactions or fights get started in pick up games because of that, don’t the players or NBA know how many people, especially kids see what they do and they try to do the same, somehow it needs to be stop, it would reduce conflicts, staredowns, basically fighting, in the playground, please tell the teams, coaches or have managment fine the players to please STOP HITTING, SLAPPING, TAPPING OR GRABING THE HEAD, of other players what ever happen to a high five, tap on shoulder, bump on forearms, theres is many other ways to celebrate, who likes to be hit or grab in the head ? “Your right how is the other Ref overuling a call from other side of court, and last thing don’t get why Nba does not add an Extra Ref. or Refs for the playoffs, there plenty sitting at home that you can give them a simple job like have them stay under the basket, instead we got 3 refs and most are what 50-70 years old running up/down am pretty sure there getting tire and what happens to humans that get tire bad judgement, we need the refs to be at there best for good judgements calls not tired calls.

  25. Hello Chuck I wanted to share some comments tonight’s game after denver loss i tuned in to Sportscenter they didn’t show the backcourt and you mentioned. To me that was a bogus call and if you on the court that is probably most deflating call that cost Denver the series. Another play, when Serge FOULED Nene abd Heorge Karl didn’t even get eched OKC will not get awy with that on the road at Staple Center that’s a foul. Finally when Greg Anthony tried to fault Shane Battieer for not leaving Duncan open. That’s weak. Jow about when Z-Bo up by two, with 1.7 s to go bricks the free throw so bad that it takes a second off that clock and elminates that one dribble to right pull up.

  26. what up chuck, my name is ira gilmer and i live in chicago, il. i want to say to you that i am a san antonio spurs fan, from 1987 8th grade, but you said that tim duncan is the best power foward every lived, but i have to say you are the best power foward ever lived, you are 6’4″ and a half and you did more things then any poward foward did in history, if you make tim duncan, or elvin hayes, or karl malone your height they wouldnt even be in the nba, you scored inside, and outside (3pointers) no other power foward can do what you did sir, championships dont make tim a better power foward then you, all the time you say allen iverson has the most heart you ever seen and you being 6’4″ doing what you did was great, and thats what makes the the best power foward that lived, i meet you about 20 years ago at a scottie pippen game in chicago, rookies vs the league, i stood next to you and tim hardaway while the boys (the singing group) was performing. but if you ever come to chicago i want my three sons to meet you and get pictures thank you chuck and be blessed

  27. Tre says:

    What do you think about the call over-the-back on the OKC game? It was a legitimate call in my opinion. How can one go from back court to front court to back court – and not be called for back court. Well, yesterday the call was made – but changed w/o proper video review. One foot on front court & one foot on back court = no turnover. One foot on front court & one foot in the air = front court. One foot on front court & one foot on back court = turnover. Thanks for reading.

  28. John says:

    So what you think Chuck you like the extra Refs. idea put 2 extra Refs, near the out of bounds side of the baskets, that way refs on the court only would have to run 50-55 feet, and not wear them out to make bad judgement calls, the Refs. are not pro athlethes, or have one extra ref. on the court, and the other just looking at replays for a faster review of calls.

  29. ethan says:

    the mavs have the length to hang with the lakers. thehornets had no length and they gave the lakers fits! what do you think?

  30. Nate Gregory says:

    i was wondering how do u think the Pacers can improve after this season? i was thinking of going big and get better on the defense? what do think? also maybe fire bird and ask the big O the GM lol

  31. tay says:

    chuck!! u lied on ‘inside the nba’ about predicting atlanta to win over orlando! better hope ej and kenny dont find out!

  32. Jamal Rodriguez says:

    Do you think Dwight Howard will be traded to the Lakers in the off season for Andrew Bynum, or do u think the Orlando magic will wait for Dwight Howard’s contract to expire. If he does not go to the lakers what team would be the best fit for him?

  33. NIck Paschke says:

    Hey, I am nick paschke and i was wondering if you remeber me? you were in rapid city for a golf tournement at the red rocks and me and my brother road our bikes out there to meet you and you auto graphed our basketballs and a gold ball??? well i still remeber it so i wS just courious if you did???

  36. jose a matamoros says:

ON THAT NOTE WADE IS OVER RATED AND LEBRON JAMES PROVED HIMSELF IN CLEVELAND. I’LL TAKE ZACK RANDOLPH AND HIS OLDMANS GAME OVER THE 3 STOOGES ANYDAY

  37. Arvin Alexander says:

    Chuck, I hear you guys saying Odom should play vs Dirk, but I think Pau has to post up stronger against Dirk and play stong like he did in last years Finals. He played that way the first month of the season, but has gotten worse as time passed. I live in the metro now and watch a lot of Mav games and Dirk has the most trouble vs post up 4’s. Do you think maybe Pau is gassed from 3 str8 trips to the Finals?

  38. jose a matamoros says:

    THIS GOES OUT TO ALL THE PLAYERS IN THE NBA . RESPECT THE GAME GUYS,IF YOU GREW UP WATCHING,BILL RUSSELL,WILT,WEST,DOCTOR J,AND SO ON. THEN YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. STOP PLAYING SO DIRTY,QUIT CRYING OVER EVERY CALL. IT’S OKAY TO WANT TO WIN JUST RESPECT EACH OTHER, BUT MOST OF ALL RESPECT THE GAME. IT SEEMS THAT ALL OF THE NEW GENERATION OF PLAYERS ARE SPECIAL,BUT MORE LIKE SPECIAL EDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. Hey Charles,
    Really enjoy you on NBA on TNT with Kenny & Ernie. You guys are fun to watch so much so I don’t care if I miss the game but I make sure to record the post game show so I can watch what happens you guys show. Anyways Kenny was whining about being soar from P90X, but you gave props to Crossfit!! Sorry but P90X does not even come close to Crossfit. If your peeps have not told you I have noticed you have trimmed down quit a bit. Keep up the Crossfit and if your in LA come on by our box in Downtown LA at Crossfit Mean Streets, the owner Ronnie is one of the top crossfitters out there and will give a you great workout. Take care and God Bless,
    Really Really Really Enjoy the show
    Ty

  41. Laurence says:

    Nice cut at my Lakers on the halftime show tonight. They didn’t go out in a classy way, but how many rings on your fingers?

  42. Carlos Velozo says:

    Sir Charles, there is some rumor in south beach that Miami Heat want Dwight Howard of Orlando to visit with the Heat, In your view, Would that make the Heat unstoppable?

  43. Sherry Ferrin says:

    Hey Charles, this is Sherry Ellis Ferrin, Arnie Ferrin’s daughter-in-law. Arnie’s 1944 University of Utah team is getting together Sat. My husband and son have written their story. I want to send you a book. How? You were so great to all of us in Kansas at the hall of fame. Love you on the show. Love my Jazz too. Just wait they will figure this out.
