Back in the 1990s, Charles Barkley was a force of nature. The ‘Round Mound of Rebound’ was ferociously dominating with his size. Moreover, for a player his stature, Barkley was quick and agile. He was dominant on both ends of the floor and rightfully found a place in the NBA’s Top 75 team. However, his weight was a constant point of concern throughout his NBA career. As a professional, Barkley worked hard to stay in shape. But since retiring from the sport, the ‘NBA on TNT’ host has been on a few food endeavors. Likewise, he is the center of most jokes inside Studio J. Recently, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal mocked Barkley, comparing his schedule to Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg.
