Throwback Thursday: Live From New York, It’s Sir Charles Barkley

It’s hard to say that there’s a favorite moment for a show like Saturday Night Live, or even a favorite quote from someone like the irreplaceable Charles Barkley. But when you manage to combine the two, it’s sure to be a single very fond memory in total. And no, we’re not talking about¬†Charles: The TV Personality you know him as today. We’re gonna¬†go all the way back to 1993 when he first appeared on the show, known instead as one of the dominant NBA forwards of that era. He bleeds energy on and off the court, fusing a relentless personality with quick-witted humor. Rewinding the clock can only do so much though. Charles Barkley clearly shows that even in his younger, more strapping days that a few speech classes is all he needed to be the man he is today. Once a Emmy-award winning analyst, always an award-winning analyst.
