Yahoo Sports- "I'm going on a fast," the Hall of Famer said during TNT's telecast. "I'm not going to eat again until the Lakers win a game. I'm telling you — I'm not going to eat another meal until the Lakers win a game."
Hallelujah! Let the big dog eat! Barkley can put down the vodka and water and grab himself a steak! Spare no expense Sir Charles, get yourself some sides and a dessert too! Get this man his calories!
Wait, who is Ed Davis? He is verified on twitter. He must be important somehow, right? What's that you say? He plays for the Lakers? That doesn't seem right. I'm a pretty big basketball fan. I don't religiously watch Lakers games, but I fancy myself a fan of the sport. I think it took me until right now to realize that I know like four guys on the Lakers, and one of them is an asian dude from Harvard. How the mighty have fallen. The most noteworthy thing this Ed Davis character has done in his life is tweet that Chuck can eat again. Probably doubled his followers off that tweet alone.
There is a lot of hostility in that tweet. Honestly , I don't understand it. If anything, Charles committing to a fast until the Lakers won was a vote of confidence. You think the 'Round Mound of Rebound' wanted to go two weeks without eating? He was rooting harder for a Lakers win than Ed Davis' own mother. In fact, she's probably a Clippers' fan at this point. She was probably catching up on the View last night. I can't imagine anyone, that doesn't have their appetite invested in the game, tuning in. I bet even China is only mere games away from losing it's Linsanity.
Really with the dollar signs Eddie? I mean I know Charles ass is worth more as a commentator than yours is as a player, but come on. You can type 'ass' dude, I promise you won't get fined. On second thought, probably safe not to, Doubt your contract can handle that type of hit.
