    UPDATE: Blog and Video...

    Charles Barkley apologizes to the Houston Rockets
    http://rockets.clutchfans.net/9666/charles-barkley-apologizes-to-houston-rockets/

    [youtube]UucgBP8FQxE[/youtube]

    On National TV.

    Said he apologized to Daryl Morey, Tad Brown and Les Alexander - said that he was 100% wrong and he should not take what they said personal.

    And said that when he is on TV he should not be personal and that when he was in Houston, Les Alexander treated him well.

    So, someone obviously had a chat with Charles about professionalism.

    Barkley Just Apologized

    To Morey, Tad Brown and Leslie Alexander. Either TNT told him to shutup or he finally got his missing money.

    Does it on a night where nobody with the Rockets is likely watching?

    Seemed sincere. Someone obviously got to him and told him to ease up.

    Did Barkley just apologize to the Rockets?

    No link yet, but I never thought I would hear Barkley apologize to DM or Les, and I just heard him say that on TNT.

    So Les finally paid him off???

    Not likely.

    But we'll see what happens now.

    Makes me wonder if Chuck or TNT got word of a possible lawsuit and they're just doing damage control. Or perhaps the league intervened.

    It's obvious Les had some words with Silver, who then had words with TNT, who then had words with Chuck.

    He needn't pile on this team. Just be professional and impartial. The Rockets in their current state will do the rest.

    Ernie: "Chuck I got word from our boss if you don't stop airing your personal agendas against the Rockets on air they're going to fire you"
    Barkley: "Fire me?? HA! Who's going to replace me? Chris Webber???"
    Ernie: ".....Kobe has been contacted..."

    3 hours later....

    Barkley: "Ernie I would like to apologize....."

    I doubt anyone at TNT told Barkley to apologize. He'd tell everyone to **** off. He's never held his tongue his entire career, which is why he's so great on TV.

    I wouldn't take anything Chuck says seriously including apologies.
