I know why his name is DMX. Because his real name is Earl. Imagine if his name was Earl the rapper.Barkley on a scuffle between Juwan Howard and Wally Szczerbiak: Both of them are nice guys, but neither one of them can crush a grape between them."It ain't against the rules to make a layup..""You mean to tell me they're holding our plane and soildiers hostage, and we're giving this Chinese guy a three year contract"After Wang has a shot blocked: "He's got to bring something stronger than that. That's like bringing milk to a bar, it's not strong enough"On the Celtics: "They stink. I could get 5 guys out of retirement, and we could beat them."Its half-man, half-amazing. Or as some folks call him: all offense, no defense.Barkley's reason for underclassman and highschool kids to stay in school:
On the news that the NBA would allow zone defenses: "This is a great day for bad NBA players"On Mavs/Jazz game 5: They better get that one over quick, because the streets in Utah close at 10."Crime will be down in NY tomorrow, because everyone will be at the game.""I can be bought. If they paid me enough, I'd work for the Klan." "I don't hate anyone, at least not for more than 48 minutes, barring overtime." "If push came to shove, I could lose all self-respect & become a reporter." On Barkley: "There wil never be another player like me. I'm the ninth wonder of the world."On baldness: "Why do bald guys always wear beards? When I started to go bald, I took it like a man." "When you're the top dog, everybody wants to put you in the pound.""You got to believe in yourself. Hell, I believe I'm the best-looking guy in the world & I might be right." "You can talk without saying a thing. I don't ever want to be that type of person." "The NBA stands for No Babies Allowed."On the All-Star Game: "Hell, there ain't but 15 black millionaires in the whole country & half of 'em are right here in this room." "I don't listen to the refs. I don't listen to anyone who makes less money than I do." On Oscar Schmidt: "Isn't he that guy with Felix Unger?" "I don't create controversies. They're there long before I open my mouth. I just bring them to your attention." "Pressure is for tires." On fines: "I went to bed as Charles Barkley & woke up as Pete Rose."
