Chuck Barkley’s been talking a lot about the NFL bounty situation. The funny thing was, Barkley said there was a bounty on an opponent of his, but they refuse to say who. The one thing that was going on, the Sixers were getting blown out.
Well, as we all know, research can find just about anything. Seems Barkley was involved in a 1992 game against the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets won, 136-84. Also seems as though Barkley himself was getting into with JR Reid:
Barkley, who had 10 points and seven rebounds, said he felt Charlotte ran up the score.
“We just didn’t play well, but you don’t humiliate a team when they are up by 20 or 30 points,” he said. “Our team will remember this game.”
JR Reid is on a BSP contributor list as one of the “Great Draft Busts of All Time.”
