Charles Barkley considers donating salary to charity during NBA lockout
"I haven't told anybody, but I'm actually -- believe it or not -- I'm leaning toward donating it to charity," he tells the Chicago radio program "The Waddle & Silvy Show." "I don't think it's cool for me to take money I haven't earned."
The NBA announced Monday (Oct. 11) it is canceling the first two weeks of the season as owners and players haven't agreed on a long-term labor contract.
Barkley hasn't made a final decision on this. He has previously stated he believes the entire 2011-12 season will be canceled.
"The problem I have is if these guys hold out all season, it's going to be a lot of money," Barkley says. "That's why I have to make that decision."
