Charles Barkley sat down with Seth Davis of Campus Insiders to discuss his gambling habits, among other things. Barkley’s love for gambling is no secret and he doesn’t shy from the fact that he’s struggled with it in the past.
“I went to Vegas a bunch of times and won a million dollars. Probably 10 times. But I’ve also went to Vegas and lost a million probably three times as much.”
Davis then asked if Barkley was worried he was getting addicted to gambling.
“Nah, I was never worried about it cause I’d take breaks here and there if I had lost on a couple of trips.”
Barkley took a 2-year break from gambling and then started telling his friends that he missed it.
“You know, it’s like anything, if you do it in moderation it’s alright. Now with my gambling, ’cause I love it, I love the action, I love the juice, but I just learned to do it in moderation.”
It’s good to hear that Barkley’s learned to quit blowing his money. At least all at once.
