When he was a player, Charles Barkley was a fantastic player. But in the second innings of his life as an NBA analyst, Chuck has probably gained a lot more fans than he did during his playing days.
The credit for it goes to his amazing take on basketball and hilarious moments on "Inside The NBA" show. Barkley, alongside Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny Smith, and Ernie Johnson, have kept fans engaged throughout the years.
Even though the show has been running for a long time, it never fails to find new things to make it worth a watch. Most recently, Barkley and co. did so by talking about the NFL legend Tom Brady.
Brady is considered one of the best players to ever play football and he has an equally amazing resume to support that claim. But that's not what has gotten Chuck's attention. Instead, it's the fact that Brady is very attractive, and it makes Barkley nervous to even talk around him.
So much so that many are saying that the NBA legend might have a crush on Brady. Don't believe it? This is what Barkley said about Brady in a recent episode of Inside The NBA show.
"Every time I'm around [Tom Brady] when he starts talking to me and I make eye contact I don't remember nothing he say after that."
This is not the first time Barkley has been seen talking about Brady in this way. In fact, in an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live a few years ago, Charles said something along similar lines.
He talked about making the mistake of looking into Brady's eyes. By doing so, he realized that the NFL legend is a very pretty man, and he was struggling to keep the conversation going with him. You can watch the interview below:
