Charles Barkley Discusses “White People Problems”

Charles Barkley hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and one of the highlights was the "White People Problems" skit.

It was funny from the start and continued with a white guy being friends with a white girl without even "hitting" that.

We wanted to post this skit on Sunday but NBC was slow to putting up the links aside from a full episode. At least now, we can enjoy the skit directly.

Ahh. White People Problems.-DocFB

New Lebron James “Who Should I Be?” Ad Goes After Critics

The new Nike ad featuring Lebron James "Who Should I Be" has debuted and he takes on his critics including a donut slam to Charles Barkley.

The ad is good and perhaps Lebron is all the things he should be.  "The Decision" has ruined his legacy but when he is inducted into the Hall Of Fame, it will not be empty.

Who should James be?  Himself.  Understand though, by being himself, he is hated.  Get over it and prove everyone wrong.  Prove me wrong.  If you can.

What do you think of the commercial?-Dr.FB

Michael Jordan On LeBum’s Decision “There’s No Way I Would Do It”

Bill Parcells said it best.  "He hasn't won anything yet.  Don't anoint him."  He was speaking of Tony Romo but the same can be said about LeBron James. 

Until 2 weeks ago, LeBron James was called the "next Michael Jordan" and nicknames of "King James" and "The Chosen 1" when he doesn't have a ring to his name.  Yes, there is a reason why I chose a photo of Michael Jordan with all those rings.  James will never see that many rings unless Pat Riley let's him borrow his. 

I have been waiting to hear what Michael Jordan thought of Lebum's decision and it did not disappoint.

"There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team,'"

"But that's ... things are different. I can't say that's a bad thing. It's an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys."

Jordan speaks of a time where it was all about competitiveness and drive.  Something that James lacks.  He doesn't want to be the man taking the last shot. He wants to be the man who passes the ball to the man taking the last shot. 

Charles Barkley even weighed in stating:

"He'll never be Jordan," "This clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to.

"There would have been something honorable about staying in Cleveland and trying to win it as 'The Man' ... LeBron, if he would've in Cleveland, and if he could've got a championship there, it would have been over the top for his legacy, just one in Cleveland. No matter how many he wins in Miami, it clearly is Dwyane Wade's team."

Miami and most of Florida do not see the problem with James going to Miami.  From the way he handled it by having an hour special to announce it and saying "I am taking my talents to South Beach."  It wasn't so much arrogance, but that he still hasn't won anything. 

Make no mistake about it; his odds of winning one or a few went up by joining Wade in Miami, but his legacy is tarnished.  Sometimes, that means more.  If he wouldn't have done the 1 hour special, people still would have been upset.  If he went to Chicago, people would not be as pissed because he would be the man.

Last week's cover of Sports Illustrated said it all with the cover shot.  Lebum looking over Wade's shoulder.  It's clearly not his team and he will never have to worry about being compared to Michael Jordan ever again.-Dr.FB

After DUI Arrest & Releases, Charles Barkley Stays Silent

Sir Charles Barkley was arrested new years eve in Arizona for a DUI.  If only Charles was silent then as he was now, he might not be so much lighter in the pockets.

Charles started talking to the officers about a girl was around the corner that gives the best oral sex ever.  He went on and on about it, maybe thinking the cops would be cool about it, but they were not.  They arrested him and released him a little bit later.

There even appeared footage of a woman waiting around the corner, looking like either a hooker or street walker, or both. 

After the results came back that he was drunk and twice the legal limit of Arizona state law, TNT suspended Charles for several weeks.  T-Mobile waited a little while longer, but then let Charles go from his commercial deal.  Wonder what Dwayne Wade thinks.  Well, actually he has his hands full with an ex-wife and STD claims.  But that is another story.

So what did Charles teach us? If you get drunk and the officer says you have the right to remain silent, maybe you just should.-Dr.FB

Charles Barkley was arrested this morning in Arizona on suspicion of DUI.

He had his blood tested on scene by police.  No word yet on what his BAC was yet.  No word yet has been released by Sir Chuck on the incident, but he has been released and he did take a cab home.-Dr.FB
