Jason Collins became the first openly homosexual athlete in major American team sports when he came out as gay in Sports Illustrated last month.

To hear Charles Barkley tell it, the operative word is "openly."

The response to Collins’ decision has been overwhelmingly positive, but the concept of playing with a gay player is still a major talking point in sports.

Barkley said on The Dan Patrick Show that he has played with 3-4 gay men during his 16-year career, and those are just the players he knows about.

After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade dropped 26 points on 11-13 shooting last night in a 101-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks, teammate LeBron James was fired up.

So much so, he uncharacteristically called out one of Wade's loudest critics.

Bron and Bark

"It means Charles Barkley needs to shut up," James said in response to a question of what Wade's performance meant to the team and to the All-Star himself.

The Round Mound of Rebound shows off a couple other round mounds in the first photo released on behalf of a commercial that will start airing on April 8.

“Diet is not a man’s word because we don’t like to diet - we like to eat,” said Barkley in a press release for the company, which signed him as a spokesperson last fall.

“Like a lot of athletes, I’ve gained weight since I’ve retired. But, I don’t want to be a fat, old man taking lots of pills. Weight Watchers is helping me change my lifestyle and learn how to make smarter eating choices anywhere I am.”

Barkley, an NBA Hall of Famer, says he's lost 40 pounds since starting the program last year.

Brett Favre crossed the line by allegedly texting pics of his penis to Jenn Sterger, but not in the way that the media has been reporting it, Charles Barkley feels.

Barkley told The Roundtable on WJOX in Birmingham, Ala., that he is "100 percent against sexual harassment," but that Sterger never accused Favre of that.

The whole Brett Favre scandal has been a "witch hunt," in Barkley's mind: "I don't know Brett Favre, but worst case ... Brett Favre's just a freak apparently."

Barkley: Favre "broke one of the Ten Commandments."

In fact, Sir Charles goes on, “My biggest problem with the whole Favre thing is if you’re going to send a woman a picture of your junk, it should be huge."

"You can't send small junk to a woman and expect anything."

Well, there you have it. Listen to his remarks here. Then watch a recent interview he gave with David Letterman in which Barkley made similar points ...

Some Arizona prison pick-up game squad is about to get a new starting power forward.

Former NBA star and current television analyst Charles Barkley is headed to jail. He pleaded guilty yesterday to charges of drunk driving, stemming from a December arrest.

Unlike calls in the paint during his playing days, Charles Barkley did not argue with the court ruling on his drunk driving arrest.

According to Scottsdale court records, Sir Charles will begin a five-day jail sentence on March 21. He'll also pay $2,000 in fines and attend an alcohol treatment program.

Barkley was cited by police on December 31, following an evening at a Scottsdale nightclub. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol level of .149 percent, nearly twice the legal limit.

It was a major mistake on Barkley's part, and he's paying the consequences. But, hey, at least he didn't murder innocent dogs with his bare hands.
