Barkley Uses Book Title to Chase Away Gambling Debts

Current TNT analyst and former 16-year NBA great Charles Barkley made headlines again today for his wild ways. According to unnamed sources, Barkley faces felony charges if he fails to pay back the Wynn Las Vegas the $400,000 he owes. The casino alleges in court documents filed Wednesday that Barkley failed to repay four $100,000 casino markers, or loans, he received last Oct. 18 and 19 after writing bad checks.

In his recent trips to Vegas, Chuck has carried with him a copy of his latest book, Who's Afraid of a Large Black Man? Whenever given a hard time, Bark has taken out the book, given the look of death and asked if "[You] want a piece of me, fool?" The "Round Mound of Rebound" has been a well-known fan of casino and sports gambling over the years, most notably when he lost a bet with TNT Host Ernie Johnson over how many donuts he can fit in his mouth at one time.
