Charles Barkley on NBA Finals, NIL, betting, transfer portal

Charles Barkley signs a hat for a fan during the ACC Golf Tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe on July 11, 2021.

STATELINE — Charles Barkley is done trying to convince the public he is a good golfer.

He knows he won’t win the celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood Tahoe this summer, but he is pretty sure he won’t finish last.

Barkley spoke to the media Wednesday during a press conference for the American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament, July 6-10 at Edgewood Tahoe.

Barkley is listed at 7,500-1 odds to win, but the odds for him to finish in the top 70, in the 90-person tournament, are not quite as long. Caesars Sportsbook has the former NBA star and current TV analyst listed at 5-1 to finish in the top 70.

Barkley said he bet $100,000 on himself to finish in the top 70 last year in the ACC, before finding out people are not allowed to bet on themselves. His bet was refunded.
