Watch Charles Barkley almost fall asleep while watching the Lakers

March 14, 2014|By Melissa Rohlin

Charles Barkley doesn't sugarcoat his thoughts or feelings, and on Thursday, he took his rawness to a new level.

During the evening's episode of TNT’s “Inside the NBA," the former basketball star and now TV analyst nearly fell asleep on camera as he watched the Lakers get blown out by the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets get romped by the Chicago Bulls. 

Like many of us at home who suffered through those games, Barkley's eyelids hung low, then slowly dropped as he visibly struggled to stay awake.

“I’m bored, man,” Barkley said as his colleagues laughed at him and accused him of having "Chuckolepsy.”
