Charles Barkley had hip replacement surgery about a month ago, and he has not yet been cleared by doctors to travel. Do I need to even tell you what Barkley thinks of doctor’s restrictions?

He flew to Houston to be with Craig Sager Thursday, bonding with his fellow TNT broadcaster who is about to undergo a third bone marrow transplant in his fight against leukemia.

Barkley did this because Sager’s wife caught a cold and doctors told her she had to stay home and away from her husband because of it.

There are few people in the world as generous of spirit as Barkley.
