Charles Barkley Wants to Be a General Manager

Charles Barkley thinks he can do better than some of the general managers he criticizes on TV.

The Hall of Fame player and TNT analyst says he’d like his chance to run an NBA team, though he’s in no rush because he’d want the right job.

Barkley says some GMs have done a "bad job, plain and simple" in making draft picks. He adds that some executives worry only about keeping their jobs and some organizations aren’t concerned with winning.
