Charles Barkley is a big black whale

In the wake of John Daly’s admission that he lost over $50 million gambling, Charles Barkley has come out and said that he’s lost about $10M in gambling.


Yeah, I do have a gambling problem. But I don’t consider it a problem because I can afford to gamble… It’s not a problem. If you’re a drug addict or an alcoholic, those are problems. I gamble for too much money. As long as I can continue to do it I don’t think it’s a problem. Do I think it’s a bad habit? Yes, I think it’s a bad habit. Am I going to continue to do it? Yes, I’m going to continue to do it.

When I gamble I should be playing $1,000 a hand instead of $20,000 a hand, because if I played for $1,000 a hand I probably could lose $50,000 to $100,000 instead of millions of dollars.

This sounds suspiciously like John Daly’s quote that he should be playing $25 slot machines instead of $5000 slot machines. Here are 20 questions for Mr. Daly and Mr. Barkley.

Can you imagine Barkley and Daly meeting at the all you can eat buffet in between gambling binges? Man we’d hate to be within food-flyin distance of that mess.
