After Barkley refused to apologize for the digs, three San Antonio City Councilwomen put together the following video, pointing out the area’s falling obesity rate and taking a couple shots at the Round Mound of Rebound in the process.

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.

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.
