Calipari said he peed on Charles Barkley’s statue at Auburn

With Kentucky set to play Auburn tomorrow afternoon, John Calipari used Saturday’s media session as an opportunity to get in another dig at Charles Barkley.

When asked about Bruce Pearl lifting the Auburn program to new heights, Cal said, “He’s gotten a program where people are absolutely excited. Sonny Smith back in the day had it rolling…”

Then came the Barkley shot:

“… he had that guy… what’s his name?… Charles, what’s his last name? That big guy with the big head. What’s his name? Oh, Charles Barkley. I peed on his statue down there, just so you know.”

He was joking, I think.

Cal’s comment was Part II in his public feud with Barkley at press conferences this year. Barkley interrupted Cal’s press conference at Auburn to say, “F— John Calipari.”

He was joking, I think.

I guarantee you we’ll hear from Barkley before tip-off tomorrow.

    I love big Charles. He’s a guy with a great sense of humor, and doesn’t take himself too seriously. That type of person is fun to be around. Looks like the SEC will be represented in the Final Four, one way or another.

    I actually drove around AU campus last year, having a little time going through Alabama. Very nice campus and cool to see Barkley & Bo Jackson statues.

      Ironically, that very thing (facial) was mentioned to my wife and I when we were there by couple AU alums. I think they were trying to create his game face and it didn’t work that well.
      But yes, that part of it could have been better.

      It’s because he’s reaching for a ball, instead of a doughnut.

      My sources say it was a joke, just like you.

    Sir Charles , Kenny Smith , Clark Kellogg, the entire CBS crew do a great job every year , without attempting to make it about themselves!

    LOVE the banter between Cal and Charles!

    GO BIG BLUE

      Why are you still here? All you’ve done all year is talk shlt about Cal and the players. Not so bold after we’ve pretty much run off your gang are you? Don’t think we are gonna let you come in here and celebrate victories and say good things about Cal now man.
