We all know Charles Barkley likes to gamble. Chuck is in my “fave fives” for people I would like to hang out with because of such antics. His gambling though has resulted in estimated losses somewhere around $10 million in his lifetime. Now comes word that Barkley has failed to pay a $400,000 marker back to the Wynn resorts in Las Vegas. I hope this is just a misunderstanding as I don’t want to tarnish Barkley’s reputation in my eyes. “The round mound of rebound” might want to take a couple lessons from Bears superstar Devin Hester and scale it back a little. Damn it, I love gambling so much!!!
Update: “Charles Barkley acknowledged he owes a $400,000 gambling debt to a Las Vegas Strip casino and promised Thursday to repay it after a prosecutor said the retired NBA star faced criminal charges. “My mistake,” Barkley said in an interview at a pro-am golf tournament in Hoover, Ala. “I’m not broke, and I’m going to take care of it.”
