NBA legend: "Jameis Winston is a damn idiot"

Published Add your comment

Ever since it was made publicly known Jameis Winston was caught shoplifting from a Publix in Florida, the whole college football world has had their say on the immature FSU quarterback.

Well it seems that criticism of the Florida State man has extended to other sports as well. Charles Barkley, former NBA legend with the Phoenix Suns and brief spell with the MonStars of Space Jam, has had a go at Winston.

Appearing on the Doug Gottlieb Show on Friday, Barkley gave his thoughts on the situation surrounding Winston and he did it in the most Chuck of ways by calling Winston a damn idiot.

The crab leg theft from Publix was just one of a long line of incidents that has seen his character called into question.

The Heisman winner was let off of a sexual assault/rape charge, but wasn't charged due to mainly the failure of the Tallahassee Police Department to even bother and form a case against the star player.

Winston has also been noticed breaking windows during BB gun battles as well as stealing soda from a Burger King restaurant.

All of this isn't helping his NFL draft prospects and you can bet that GM's and coaches are looking on at the quarterback, worried about how mature he can be in the NFL where he will be under an even more intense spotlight.
