CLEVELAND - Charles Barkley was in Cleveland doing a little fishing on Lake Michigan.
He was asked by Sporting Chance Magazine reporter Hercules Confetti what he thought about Metta World Peace signing with the New York Knicks.
"Hercules? Dude, you're name is really Hercules?" Barkley asked.
"Was you named after the great Greek mythical hero Hercules." Barkley said with a grin on his round as the moon face.
Confetti replied that he was named Hercules after an aunt Hercules TeeShawna Jefferson who was the second woman (after Rosa Parks) back in the 50's to refuse to go to the back of the bus.
Barkley was impressed. He then told Confetti that he does not think that things will work out for Metta in the Big Apple.
When asked why the man known as the Fat Bro simply replied, "Because everyone knows dat Metta has a turrible, turrible atitude and he cannot help but get technicals."
Barkley, who is also known as the Human Volcano added that he would suggest to Mr. Peace that he go into wrestling where they don't have technicals and he can take out all of his frustrations on others who also have a terrible attitude just like him.
