BROOKLYN - A man identified as Lazlo "Da Pow-Pow" Drackafini, told Charles Barkley that he seriously needs to start thinking about repaying the $3 million he borrowed from 'businessman' Salvatore "The Pizza Man" Goombalini, patriarch of the notorious Goombalini family of Brooklyn.
Goombalini sent Sir Charles, aka "The Round Mound of Rebound" a text message informing him that he has 48 hours to pay the $3 million plus $600,000 in finance charges or he would risk, as they say in New York and New Jersey, finding himself swimming with da fishes in da East River.
Barkey told Mr. Goombalini that he kind of needed a little more time in order to raise the $3.6 million.
Goombalini asked how much more time. And Charles said that he could probably get the entire amount by 2020.
"The Pizza Man" was not amused. Charles started laughing and said that he was just pulling his leg. Goombalini said that no one, but one pulls Salvatore Goombalini's leg.
Sal then noted that in regards to pulling things, the Caraboochi triplets of the Bronx, Carla, Cara, and Consuelo, can pretty much pull just about any appendage on his entire body.
Barkley apologized to Mr. Goombalini for trying to be funny and he said that he will be talking to his T-Mobile 'Fave Five' which includes Dwayne Wade, Kenny "The Jet" Smith, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Manu Ginoboli.
Sir Charles assured Mr. Goombalini that he is fairly certain that he will have the $3.6 million in his big black hands within 48 hours.
