I just read Valsviews' review of Charles Barkley. As soon as I read it, I couldn't help but think of the  NBA Superstar's video (see bottom of review).  I was a huge fan of Barkley …

The NBA Finals start tonight and I am cautiously optimistic. They have had quite a run through the playoffs, losing games when they should have won and there are several external issues that have added …
