I love Charles Barkley.  I love Barkley because he doesn’t censor himself to a fault with the thoughts of overly sensitive people at the forefront of his mind.  There are far too many analysts that are PC and corporate.  They cower and cave to people that get offended by anything and everything.  Not Barkley.

Barkley cracked a joke about TNT’s doubleheader coverage on Martin Luther King Day.  Charles joked, “Give a black man a holiday and make him work.”  I’m guessing that he was talking about himself, but it’s possible that he was referring to black basketball players who will be in action on MLK Day also.

TNT will air the San Antonio Spurs vs. Philadelphia 76ers at 7pm on Monday.  That game will be followed by the Chicago Bulls against the Los Angeles Lakers at 9:30pm.  104.5 The Team will also air the Bulls vs. Lakers game.  Pregame coverage will begin at 8:30pm.

Brian Noe is the Brand Manager at 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio in Albany, NY.  Brian also hosts “The Noe Show” weekdays from 1-3 pm ET on WTMM.
