Barkley Tells Conan He’d Kick Obama’s Ass…In Basketball (Video)

barkley vs. obamaEveryone knows that American President Barack Obama loves playing basketball, but is he any good at it?  Charles Barkley doesn’t seem to think so.

Although Barkley was one of the greatest players during his days with the 76ers, Suns and Rockets, he has since grown old, fat, and appears to have few traces of athleticism remaining in that out-of-shape body of his.  But as he told Conan O’Brien during a guest appearance on his show Tuesday night, he still feels he can “kick Obama’s ass” in a game of basketball.

So what would give the former NBA MVP so much confidence?  Predictability!  You see, Obama is a lefty, and according to Chuck, “he always goes left, and if you just stand there, I’m not sure if you opened up the right side he’d go right at all.”

Barkley has already raced 67-year-old Dick Bavetta at the 2007 NBA All-Star Game.  Perhaps he will give Obama the opportunity to prove himself in a one-on-one game during this year’s All-Star festivities….Just a thought…

Here is a look at Barkley’s critique of Obama’s game.
