It's not surprising when NBA legend Charles Barkley says something controversial but this recent quote about golfer Tiger Woods shows that the Chuckster will stick up for his friends.
During a radio interview in Chicago on last Thursday, Barkley commented on statements made by former golfer Greg Norman about his belief that Tiger is intimidated by golfer Rory McIlroy and Woods decision to take the high road on Norman's comments:
“I would like for him to just blast Greg Norman … That situation gave everybody a chance to dump on you, and [Tiger] still tried to take the high road. I’m not a high road guy. I want him to come out and really blast Greg Norman. I wish he would go ballistic on Greg … I wish I could put some of my blackness in him … like toughness … [I've been] arrested eight times for fighting … just because I’m Charles Barkley, you can’t disrespect me"(Courtesy of Off The Bench)
