Charles Barkley on Tiger Woods: "I wish I could put some of my blackness in him"

By Jason McIntyre

Earlier this week, Greg Norman said that Tiger Woods was “intimidated” by the No. 1 golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy.

Tiger’s response was to joke about it, but his old friend, Charles Barkley – remember, Tiger supposedly cut ties with Barkley after he got caught cheating on his wife with chicks in Vegas (and everywhere, really) – didn’t like Norman’s dig.

Barkley went on Waddle and Silvy’s radio show in Chicago Thursday and had some advice for Tiger while hammering Norman:

I would like for him to just blast Greg Norman … That situation gave everybody a chance to dump on you, and [Tiger] still tried to take the high road. I’m not a high road guy. I want him to come out and really blast Greg Norman. I wish he would go ballistic on Greg … I wish I could put some of my blackness in him … like toughness … [I’ve been] arrested eight times for fighting … just because I’m Charles Barkley, you can’t disrespect me … you just can’t say anything to me anytime you want to …

Here’s the audio.
