Another day, another wild remark from Sir Charles during a sports radio interview. Barkley, upset at the way his buddy Tiger Woods tends to turn the other cheek whenever someone takes a shot at him, says that he’d like for the golfer to start lashing back. From TBL (via ESPN): “Earlier this week, Greg Norman said that Tiger Woods was ‘intimidated’ by the No. 1 golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy. Tiger’s response was to joke about it, but his old friend, Charles Barkley – remember, Tiger supposedly cut ties with Barkley after he got caught cheating on his wife with chicks in Vegas (and everywhere, really) – didn’t like Norman’s dig. […] ‘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 … you just can’t say anything to me anytime you want to …’”
