Without any professional basketball since June, Charles Barkley hasn’t had a chance to speak his mind on television on a regular basis. Luckily, the former basketball star turned NBA television analysts did manage to make his opinions known about where he ranks Johnny Manziel, Miley Cyrus and Alabama on his list of things he can’t stand.
During Barkley’s appearance on ESPN Chicago’s Waddle & Silvy radio show, he was asked about the Texas A&M Heisman winner, and of course, the outspoken Sir Charles had a lot to say:
“Hey listen, Johnny Manziel, he’s doing something that I never thought was possible. He’s going to make me root for Alabama this weekend. I thought I would never say those words. Johnny Manziel. I am so close to saying ‘Roll Tide’ – Johnny Manziel is annoying me so much that I am really close to saying ‘Roll Tide.’
They’re [Auburn fans] not going to be happy, but Johnny Manziel, oh my God, the only thing saving Johnny Manziel is Miley Cyrus. I mean, are you kidding me? That’s the only thing.
I just think that Johnny Manziel has done a lot of stupid stuff in the last three or four months.”
For Barkley to even consider mumbling the words ‘Roll Tide’ is a tough task as a loyal Auburn alumnus, so that alone should show just how much he can’t stand Johnny Football – and Miley Cyrus.
So let’s recap the rankings of things Barkley can’t stand right now from the least annoying to the most in his mind:
First there is the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Secondly there is Johnny Manziel.
And bring up the rear is the twerking sensation, Miley Cyrus.
There are just too many knuckleheads in this world, huh Chuck?
