    Default Charles Barkley pays busboy's college tuition

    Thought this was kind of an interesting story.

    Nice to see him put his money towards something besides gambling I guess.

    For once, we kinda agree. Though Chuck certainly has his flaws, he seems to be a good person.

    A very admirable thing to do. What's great about it is that Chuck undoubtedly decided to offer it without any previous consideration or anything. Most times athletes and celebrities do charitable acts that seem off the cuff just to get positive PR. Chuck didn't see it that way, props to him.

    Good for Chuck, it is impossible to criticize him for a move like this.
