Charles Barkley is tired of LaVar Ball, so he’s wearing the jersey of UCLA’s opponents during the NCAA Tournament.
“I’m going to wear a jersey till they lose,” Barkley said. “He’s going to be following the camera around. So I need them to lose so we quit showing him.
“I have some animosity toward the UCLA program at this particular moment. Right now, I’ve got bitter anger animosity toward certain people affiliated – not the players. Love Steve Alford.”
Earlier this week, Barkley challenged Ball to a one-on-one matchup. “Once I found out he averaged two points a game in college, listen, you need to slow your roll. I need to go back and Google this guy, because maybe I missed the Ball era, when he was dominating and winning championships everywhere else.”
