Charles Barkley Voted Best Announcer?

Charles Barkley rides in to the TNT studio on horseback before game three of the Western Conference Finals in the NBA playoffs between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs, Thursday, May 31, 2012.

The NBA is heating up right now during the playoffs for conference finals.  But, while players are taking it to the hoop, they somehow found the time to vote.  Not for Barack Obama, but their favorite announcer.

Now announcers, as far as we know, usually call the game and give you the play by play of what’s happening on the court…which Charles Barkley doesn’t. He’s a sports analyst on TNT’s Inside the NBA. But that didn’t stop 124 NBA players from voting him Best Announcer.

Sports Illustrated asked the players to vote for the best announcer and they thought Barkley’s no nonsense, talk about your mama if he has to style was the best in the game.  In recognition of his newfound honor, in true Sir Charles form, he rode up to the TNT studio on horseback to maybe say, “There’s a new sheriff in town!”

I wonder how long it will take for the players to regret their decision.   Surely, Barkley will be offending someone’s game by the end of conference finals.
