The Hunger Games: Lakers Win, Charles Barkley Can Eat Again
Three days ago, Charles Barkley said on TNT that he wouldn't eat again until the Lakers won a game. On Sunday night they snapped their five-game losing streak with a 107-92 win over the Hornets, as Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin each scored 21 for LA.
Yeah, the Internet had a little fun with that.

Charles Barkley has a new diet. He is not going to eat until the Lakers win a game. http://t.co/DxA1yOZZ3A

One of the reasons that Charles Barkley is so good at what he does -- he knows how to latch on to a prominent story, and make it about him. The Lakers have finally won, and all people are talking about is Barkley's "hunger strike." Whatever Turner Sports is paying him probably isn't enough.
