06:35 PM ET 11.05 | How long will Charles Barkley continue to be a fixture as a TNT broadcaster? According to Barkley himself, it might be for less time than you think. Barkley told Sports Illustrated that he is struggling to stay engaged and may be looking for a new challenge. "I love my job," Barkley said. "I love the people I work with. And I'm going to try to do things to keep me engaged. But I have four years left on my current deal and to be honest with you, it's going to be a struggle for me to make it for the whole four years. I really don't know how much longer I'm going to do this. I need something more, or something else to do to be honest with you."

I appreciate Charles because he always says what he thinks without trying to dress it up.I also like him to keep Shaq's fat ego in check.

Agreed. The TNT crew would be awfully boring without chuck on the set. I could see him spreading his wings and doing commentary on a second sport like the nfl, but stay on the mic chuck

Its no wonder you have the kinda posters you have on this site. Yeah, they are actually applauding a complete moron in Barkley and now I see why all the constant hate for the New York Knicks. Its partly induced by this fool Barkley, the avid Knicks hater this clown is, and to think, you would think this clown actually won a ring or something. Granted he's a HOFer but so is Patrick and I certainly say its a push when it comes to their careers, both very stellar, but listening to this moron you would think he's more accomplished or something......Not!

And OBTW haters, powercheck yourselves, the Knicks 3-0, and Sheed got'em hollering Yeah. The silliness of all the Hate, Melo, JR, Sheed are tryin to perculate, and dat $hitt ain't up fa debate.

They'll all say the Knicks are ole and ain't fa real, but you know the deal, take a pill suckas and chill, now thats da muthafuckin deal. Knicks bag'em at home, and then on the road, takin heads, kickin ****, and never leaving the story untold.

The Apple is up early spittin venom, got'em shakin dey heads, wondering what and how I hit'em, sayin damn, dat kid kinda nice, on the mic, makin think once or twice, uhmmm, say it ain't so, nah Apple chill....cause you know dey fillin ya flo........Apple, and I'm out!

Wow. English grammar was just set back 500 years after reading this. Man. We arent far from idiocracy are we? Other than that, i like the passion you NYK fans have for your team. They look good and it looks like somehing clicked on for Melo this summer while playing in the olympics. Coach K tutorial perhaps?

Shaq is driving him out while ruining the show. Shaq wants desperately to dominate the show and the others don't know what to do. What was sometimes funny chaos is irritating and tiresome lunacy now.
