Charles Barkley: Jameis Winston is 'just a damn idiot'


Since the news that Florida State quarterback and Heisman winner Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting some crab legs from a local Publix, nearly everyone from around the sports world has weighed in with their opinion, and now you can add Charles Barkley to that list.

Appearing on the Doug Gottlieb Show Friday, Barkley gave his thoughts on the situation surrounding Winston and he did it in the most Barkley way possible–by flat out calling Winston an idiot.


Of course, there might be some Florida State fans that will chalk this up to Barkley being bitter about Winston leading the ‘Noles past his Auburn Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game this past January, while everyone else around the country will more than likely agree with the sentiments of the TNT NBA analyst.

All things considered, though, Barkley isn’t wrong. Being in such a high-profile position that Winston is in, it wasn’t very smart to get nabbed for $32 worth of seafood, but it’s just so much more fun hearing the perspective from Barkley himself, as with any other matters in the world.
