Charles Barkley tells Billy Packer how he really feels

Billy Packer was probably not expecting Charles Barkley to respond this way when he made the comments about Turner Sports getting the rights to the NCAA Tournament.

“ESPN would be better, he says, partly because it has announcers doing college games all season. He likens using NBA announcers to when he used to turn down requests to work NBA action by saying, ” ‘I’m not qualified, it’s a different sport.’ ” This, he says, is like CBS’ Verne Lundquist calling SEC football all year “and then having somebody who just did the pros come in to call the SEC title game.”

The result, Sir Charles calling him a “jackass.”
