Charles Barkley Rode Subway, Went Clubbing In NYC [VIDEO]

At this point, Charles Barkley is more entertaining than just about everyone else in sports television. Prior to Thursday’s Knicks-Nets game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch recorded Barkley taking the subway for the first time.

Of course it was fantastic. Among the highlights:

Barkley on a crying baby in the subway car:

“I’m going to see the Knicks and Nets so I know exactly how that baby feels.”

Barkley talking about the game:

“It don’t matter, man. Zero plus zero is still zero.”

Barkley moved from the TNT studio to the analyst’s chair for the stinker of a game, but his night didn’t end there.

Later in the evening, Barkley stopped by WIP in SoHo to check out Nick Cannon, King Khan and Whoo Kid. That’s a serious day for a 50 year-old guy.

We wish everyone in sports was as engaging and honest as Barkley, who seems to take his job more seriously than he does himself. Too often, it’s the other way around.
