TNT analyst Charles Barkley has made no secret of his gambling over the years.


Charles Barkley acknowledged he owes a $400,000 gambling debt to a Las Vegas Strip casino and promised Thursday to repay it after a prosecutor said the retired NBA star faced criminal charges.

"My mistake," Barkley said in an interview at a pro-am golf tournament in Hoover, Ala. "I'm not broke, and I'm going to take care of it."
Barkley was responding to comments by Clark County District Attorney David Roger, who said prosecutors would file a criminal complaint if he did not pay the debt cited by the Wynn Las Vegas resort.

I read in his book he loves to gamble, and he does it because as he says here "i can afford to". So this comes as no surprise to me. But for a guy who is so critical about what is going on in our country politically and socially, for him to have this bad of a gambling problem makes him very hippocritical IMO.
