One thing about Charles Barkley is he’s always going to say what’s on his mind. He did just that on Sunday night when he called out the NCAA, saying they need to “get their crap together.” “The NCAA, they’re like the Barney Fife of the world,” Barkley said. “They do an awful job of administrating. We got guys on tape paying players three years ago they ain’t saying nothing about. The NCAA, they are so far behind the times. They’re so reactive. It’s time for them to get their crap together. They say they wanna stop cheating, they wanna make everything equal with the women, because that was a travesty and a disgrace. It’s time for us, because we’re in bed with the NCAA, we’re doing all the social stuff in the NBA. It’s time for us guys, the coaches, to say, ‘Yo man, you all gotta do a better job.’ ”

Like him or hate it, Charles Barkley will never shy away from his opinion.
