#9 Charles Barkley turns dietitian

Bavetta/Barkley Challenge
Charles Barkley was as much an all-time great as a great loudmouth

Charles Barkley is counted among the loudest of loudmouths in the history of NBA. There are examples aplenty of occasions when he did shoot his mouth off and then had to put his foot in it (okay, enough mouth puns for now).

However, he was spot on just this once, while advising his Houston Rockets teammate, the 300-pound Stanley Roberts, “Hey Stanley, you could be a great player if you only learned two words: "I’m full”.

Barkley's acid wit didn't even spare himself. In 1994, controversial figure skating legend Tonya Harding quipped that she was 'the Charles Barkley of figure skating'.

The basketball legend nicknamed 'Sir Charles' is known to have said, "My initial response was to sue her for defamation of character, but then I realized I had no character."
