On the Thursday ESPN Radio broadcast of “Mike and Mike,” former NBA star Charles Barkley said he is not a fan of Christmas.
He reasoned that since he is “black and rich” that “everybody” acts like they are a part of his family and asks for nice gifts from him
“When you are black and rich, everybody think they are part of your family. Everybody’s a relative. Everybody wants a really nice gift. It’s like your family members members. One year you buy them a house, the next year you buy them a car, the next year you buy them a sweater, they look at you like, ‘You only got me a sweater.’ They always want the gifts to escalate so you can never get them a sweater because you bought them a house the year before because they get pissed.”
