Charles Barkley Says He Offered Dirk Nowitzki Money to Go to Auburn

By Stephen Douglas

Charles Barkley and the Inside the NBA crew were talking about Dirk Nowitzki at halftime of the Spurs – Mavericks game. While discussing his place in history, before going to commercial, Barkley said that he played against Dirk overseas at some point and was so impressed with the teenager that he offered him money to go to Auburn. He then threw in a quip about how it would have been “the best investment since Cam Newton.” By the time you read this, Barkley, Dirk and Cam will all be banned from NCAA postseason play.
