  • On Phil Jackson handing out books to his team: "He needs to give that team a Bible. Only God can help them. They're terrible."
  • [From last season] "If Ginobili doesn't make the All-Star team, then I'm not going to Denver."
    Thanks Jacqueline!
  • Here's one in response to San Antonio's opening night victory over the Nuggets, which includes Reggie and Charles trying to pronounce Fabricio Oberto's name.

    Charles: "That's bad news for the West."
    Ernie: "It certainly is."
    Charles: "Because San Antonio, number one, with Tim Duncan and Ginobili playing basketball all summer...They won it last year, and they're much better, I think Nick Van Exel is going to be a great addition, and Michael Finley, and I can't pronounce that big kid's name, but he's gonna play well also."
    Reggie: "Francisco Oberto!"
    Charles: "Oh, you bilingual now!"
    Thanks Dion!

  • [I like this one even though it's not really a Charles quote. Taken from the Arizona Republic on Nov. 19th] On TNT's postgame show Thursday, analyst Charles Barkley said Kurt Thomas and Brian Grant are good players but are "plodders" who don't fit the Suns' system. "At least he says I can play a little bit," Thomas said. "At least he gave me a little credit."

  • "Hey first of all, I love Mark Cuban. He ain't never gonna know more about basketball than me. I ain't never gonna have as much money as him, I'll never know more about computers, but he'll live to be 1000, and he'll never know more than us two about basketball. If he knew that, he wouldn't have put that little 'soft cake' team together."
Thanks Danny!

  • After seeing Mark Cuban wearing that ugly blue jacket: "Wow, all that money and he dresses like Craig Sager."

  • Ernie: Charles do you know what a blog is?

    Charles: No, I just know it has something to do with the internet. I don't do the internet. Anybody that sits and plays on the computer just has no life.
