Charles Barkley

Former basket ball star Charles Barkley has disclosed a gambling habit that has seen him "donate" over $10,000,000 to the green tables.

Now a writer and NBA analyst, he claims that he can afford the habit so he doesn´t see it as a problem.

In the past couple of years Wynn Las Vegas took him to court chasing $400,000k in gambling debts. Barkley had actually settled by the time the writ had arrived, but it left him having to pay the court costs.

Barkley claims his days as a High Roller are over- at least for the time being and was quoted as saying: "Just because I can afford to lose money doesn't mean I should do it."

Barkley starred in sixteen NBA seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets, and represented the United States in their Olympic "Dream Team" of 1992 and 1996.
