Outspoken former NBA star Charles Barkley admitted during a radio interview on Friday afternoon that he took money from an agent while in college. Foxsports.com reported Barkley made the revelation during Dan Patrick's show when discussing Reggie Bush relinquishing his Heisman Trophy amid reports that the former USC running back received money from an agent while with the Trojans. "I got money from agents when I was in college," Barkley told Patrick. "Most of the players I know borrow money from agents.

Devin Harris hit a lunging half-court shot at the buzzer and the host New Jersey Nets ended a season-high five-game losing streak with a 98-96 victory over the slumping Philadelphia 76ers last night. With players from both teams surrounding the scorer's table, the referees watched replays of Harris' shot for about two or three minutes before signaling the basket was good. Seconds earlier, the 76ers (27-28) seemingly had nailed down the victory when Andre Iguodala made the second of two free throws to give them a one-point lead with 1.8 seconds to play.

Here's the situation: Suppose Charles Barkley is white. And suppose he makes the comment during an interview that he hates black people. Does it create an uproar?Let's just say that in the case of a person who has the personality of a Barkley, it depends.Once again, Barkley is in hot water, this time for saying, "See, that's why I hate white people" to a white reporter friend after answering a question about NBA groupies during an interview session during All-Star Weekend. ESPN ran with the story, creating a mild controversy over the weekend.

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley, perhaps a bit peeved by the $5,000 fine the NBA levied on him for criticizing an official, took out some frustration on the Washington Bullets last night.His domination around the basket helped build a big lead through the first three quarters and the Suns cruised to their eighth straight victory, 125-110, in front of 19,023 at America West Arena.And it is his play that has sparked the Suns to a 15-4 record, best in the NBA.It was the fourth straight loss for the Bullets (7-14)

Maybe what the Los Angeles Lakers need is a little incentive as they play their final three regular-season games and head into the NBA playoffs seeded No. 7 or No. 8 in the Western Conference. Maybe what they need is for someone of a certain prominence to say they have no shot at going very far in the playoffs and give them a "we'll-show-you" attitude. Who better to do that than TNT commentator and new Hall of Fame member Charles Barkley? He was more than happy to oblige in a phone conversation yesterday from Atlanta, where he was preparing for that night's Inside the NBA studio show.

With the recent acquisition of Scottie Pippen, more than a few basketball prognosticators are picking the Houston Rockets as the team to beat in the Western Conference of the NBA this season. While the move certainly puts Charles Barkley in position to win his first championship, he knows better than to get too excited about what people are predicting."You don't go out with a woman on the first date and say you're going to marry her, do you?" Barkley said. "I'm not going to do that with this team.

The 76ers' Charles Barkley yesterday vowed his new autobiography, "Outrageous," in which he trashes team owner Harold Katz and several teammates, won't be released because his ghostwriter, Roy S. Johnson of Sports Illustrated, misquoted him.Among quotes that have Barkley irate is this one about Manute Bol: "We traded a first-round draft choice for a 28-year-old flyswatter who could score only 1.9 points a game. Hell, my grandmother could score two points a game, as long as she wasn't double-teamed."

It probably was a coincidence that NFL owners decided to knock two years off their collective bargaining agreement with the players union on the same day No. 3 draft pick Matt Ryan agreed to a $72 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons, but that doesn't mean the two top football headlines of the week were unrelated. Quite the contrary, management has cited out-of-control rookie compensation as one of the main rationales for abandoning the current CBA in 2011, and Ryan's new deal - which guarantees him at least $34.75 million before he plays his first NFL game - conveniently illustrated the point.

The Chicago Bulls won the NBA's draft lottery last night. The Bulls had just a 1.7 percent chance of landing the top choice. Chicago will likely draft star freshmen Michael Beasley, the Kansas State forward who averaged 26.2 points and an NCAA-best 12.4 rebounds, or Derrick Rose, the point guard who carried Memphis within minutes of the national title. The Miami Heat will draft second and the Minnesota Timberwolves will go third. The rest of the top 14 are the Seattle SuperSonics, Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Charlotte Bobcats, New Jersey Nets, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors.

Charles Barkley is a Las Vegas kind of guy - something he's not shy about. He said during a radio interview last year that he won about $700,000 gambling in Sin City around the time of the Indianapolis Colts-Chicago Bears Super Bowl. According to his green-felt war stories, his game of choice is blackjack. It's also clear he bets because Barkley mentioned that he won some money on Indianapolis in the Super Bowl. But at the same time, he admitted to losing $2.5 million in six hours in 2006.

On Allen Iverson Philly is about to make another big mistake, along the lines of the Barkley trade, but because their GM is terrible, it's something they have to do. It's something they have to do because they don't want a player who is going to mope around all year saying "woe is me" because the Sixers stink. Apparently he stopped moping long enough to average 31.2 points.

For an all-day outdoor "music extravaganza" with two stages and a tent blaring kinetic, wildly eclectic rock, the Virgin Festival by Virgin Mobile at Pimlico Race Course yesterday felt surprisingly laid back. This was especially true before the sun went down. Sure, there was some crowd surfing at the front of the main stage, but that's no big deal. Walking through the crowd of teens and college-age students, with baby boomers sprinkled here and there, you had to be careful not to step on people sprawled out sleeping on the grass.

LAS VEGAS -- In most areas of public life these days, you can say just about anything one day and announce the next, "I misspoke," and that's the end of that. That being the case, all Iran Barkley hopes to point out to Thomas Hearns is that there is more than one way to say, "That's the end of that."Like unconsciousness, for one.Several days ago, Hearns, the six-time world champion who will risk his World Boxing Association light heavyweight title against Barkley at Caesars Palace in a nationally televised pay-per-view fight tonight, met Barkley at a press conference and informed him, "In my neighborhood in Detroit, everyone calls me Big Daddy.

STATELINE, Nev. -- I couldn't wait for Ravens training camp, so I went in search of Kyle Boller over the weekend. Found him on the scenic shores of Lake Tahoe, where he was participating in the American Century Championship golf tournament along with Ben Roethlisberger and Charles Barkley and the handful of truly serious celebrity golfers who actually vie for the $100,000 first prize each year. Boller isn't bad, but he's no soap opera star. Jack Wagner of The Bold and the Beautiful became the first non-professional athlete to win the event when he edged former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver by 1 point in the tournament, which is played under a modified Stableford scoring system that gives points for pars, birdies and eagles and deducts points for anything worse than a bogey.
