Barkley on Rex Ryan: “If I was on that team, I would have every player and every coach come in without shoes on”December 27, 2010 – 11:00 am by timgunter
When something newsworthy or funny happens in the world of sports there is no one better to get an opinion from than Charles Barkley. So after the video of Rex Ryan’s wife, Michelle, talking mostly about her feet surfaced last week, Dan Patrick did the right thing and called Sir Charles Barkley to get his opinion on the subject. Although ‘it’s a personal matter’ we thought it would best to let you guys in on this.
Charles Barkley joined Dan Patrick to talk about what kind of fetishes he has that people would find interesting, whether he would joke with Rex Ryan if he were one of his players and if so, what he would do, and which of his coaches had the best sense of humor.
What kind of fetishes he has that people would find interesting:
“Clearly you don’t want to be on TV anymore or radio if you don’t want to know about the Chuck fetishes. Hey, I would have the FCC light up like a Christmas tree… But I have got to say this, Rex Ryan is the best. I love Rex Ryan, he is the best.”
Whether he would joke with Rex Ryan if he were one of his players and if so, what he would do:
“Oh yeah, you have go to. Well if I was on that team, the next meeting I would have every player and every coach come in without shoes on, something like that. Dan that is the best thing about playing sports is the time you make fun of each other. Everybody comes in without their shoes on, something like that.”
Which of his coaches had the best sense of humor:
“Probably Rudy Tomjanovich. Billy Cunningham was great, Paul Westphal is one of the great people that I have met in my life, but probably Rudy Tomjanovich because he had been around the block as a player and a coach, he had seen it all. Great coach too but he was more fun to be around.”
