CHARLES BARKLEY, that struggling duffer of note, doesn't think it matters who owns the Sixers, his one-time club.
"Nobody cares, to be honest," said the NBA Hall of Famer/TNT analyst yesterday on a media call for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship next month in Lake Tahoe, where his odds of winning are listed at 500-1.
"It's about the coaches and the players. Doug [Collins] did a fantastic job this year, they're going in the right direction, people just have to be patient. You want your team to be good. It's no big deal who the owner is."
Sir Charles acknowledged that he has considered being one, perhaps even in Philly or Phoenix (where he went to the NBA Finals in 1993).
