Last month, during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the former NBA star said that the team's first round selection Dez Bryant was his new favorite player in the NFL, due in part to his restraint in not physically attacking Dolphins' GM Jeff Ireland, when Ireland asked if Bryant's mother was a prostitute.
Now, Barkley is giving props to another Dallas Cowboy for non-football-related matters.
In an appearance on ESPN Radio 103.3's Galloway and Company, Barkley was asked if Miles Austin's alleged canoodling with reality star Kim Kardashian was cause for concern for Dallas fans--who may remember in disdain a certain celebrity girlfriend whose name starts with a "J" and ends with an "Essica Simpson."
"Not at all," Barkley said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I mean, she probably didn’t know who Miles Austin was up until last year when he played great. And I mean, Kim Kardashian, she’s a catch. If you got a chance to go out with Kim Kardashian, you got to jump on that wagon.
"I’m happy for Miles Austin and she’s probably the most sane one out of the Kardashians."
