All the column that fits

Here are some items that didn't fit into the space alloted today's column. (OK, who's that who said I could have more space if we just didn't run that picture of me?)

*Does the news of Charles Barkley's gambling issues affect your enjoyment of his work on TNT's NBA studio show? Maybe not. After all, it's not as if he spit on a fan or tossed a guy through a window. We're pretty forgiving, after all, especially for those whose on-air personalities are engaging and who are really good at their jobs.

I mean, just because you get involved in a tawdry affair that includes accusations of wearing women's underwear and biting doesn't mean you can't call NBA conference finals.

*During Game 1 of the NBA Western finals, TNT's microphones caught San Antonio Spurs  coach Gregg Popovich telling his All-Star forward Tim Duncan to find the open Brent Barry: ''He's wide open from the three. It's all right. You can't see the whole world the whole time, TD. That's why I told him pull his pants down, then you'll notice.''

Popovich obviously is a fan of the show on Fuse (ranks right up there with Versus) called Pants-Off Dance-Off.

*And while we're on the subject of basketball, ABC/ESPN needs to ditch that low-angle shot it seems so enamored of. Though it might be nice to have a seat in the arena at that spot, the perspective for a TV viewer is dizzying and limiting.
