Charles Barkley: Johnny Manziel 'too immature' to handle fame

Charles Barkley has some sage advice for Johnny Manziel.

On Wednesday, the former NBA player appeared on the Bull and Fox Show on WKRK-FM in Cleveland where he said that Manziel is too immature to handle fame. Barkley also urged Manziel to tone it down with the selfies.

"You should never take selfies of yourself doing anything that can be considered stupid," Barkley said. "And that's probably the only problem I have with Johnny Manziel. Most of his pictures are selfies, and that tells me he's just too immature to handle this fame thing right now."

Aside from not taking selfies, Barkley also said that Manziel should consider avoiding taking pictures at all. Especially when the source of those pictures are from the cameras of friends.

"I think he has to be careful. Johnny has to understand, everybody has a cell phone," Barkley said. "You have to be careful when you're out in public. The only problem I have with Johnny Manziel is him and his friends are always taking pictures… Somebody might get [a picture of me], but it won't be one of my friends. I don't allow my friends to take pictures when they're with me."

Although Manziel hasn't run into any legal trouble during his busy offseason, his Browns teammates, coaches, and front office personnel have to be getting worn out of the coverage that has surrounded him. In a matter of months, Manziel has been seen riding an inflatable swan, hanging out with Justin Bieber, flashing money in Las Vegas, and doing something precarious in an Austin, Texas bathroom, among others.

  1. he is a young lad that is having will all crash and burn if he fails in the NFL...

  2. soooo Barkley threw someone out a bar window, spit on a little girl in the stands, got slapped for reneging on a gambling bet, got sued by a casino for not paying a debt and now HE is the one to tell Manzel that he is doing to much/

  3. Despite all of Barkley's issues, he still is right! Manziel should in C-Town working hard and learning the Brown's system better than anyone! This isn't college anymore Johnny.

    1. That's right. He thinks he's the shit right now, but that will change very shortly after his first NFL sack. NFL ain't college, brah, so get ready. I liked him when I first saw him tearing up the SEC, but now he's just another douche. He will fall, and hard.

  4. so he speaks from a problem with that?

  5. Comment should not be empty.
    I agree. I typed in a comment, it made me sign in and then the damned comment was erased. Major suction!

  6. he has not even stepped on to the field and he's already acting like a superstar and real stars don't act that way. as for charles he's a moron, but he does speak the truth.
