DONOVAN MCNABB spent Wednesday night in a Maricopa, Ariz., jail. But, unlike Charles Barkley, he didn't get to meet Joe Arpaio, who bills himself as "America's Toughest Sheriff. " McNabb was released from one of the county's detention facilities yesterday after serving a 1-day sentence for a misdemeanor DUI arrest last December. "I have had other high profile athletes who have been incarcerated with no problems," Arpaio said in a statement yesterday. "And this latest athlete follows that same pattern.

SOMEWHERE CBS sports producers are cringing. The NCAA Tournament starts up next week, which means the return of Charles Barkley to the studio. Chuck has been on board since 2011 when CBS and Turner struck a deal to carry the tournament until 2024. As usual, all 67 games will been televised by CBS, TNT, TBS or TruTV. This year, Barkley will be on the New York set with Ernie Johnson, Clark Kellogg and Kenny Smith. And, as any Sixers fans know, things can get interesting with Barkley in the house.

IMAGINE YOU are on a park bench and this guy sits next to you and begins to talk. He tells you he was there that night in Hershey when Wilt scored 100, tells you he even had the 100-point ball in his possession before he wrapped it in a bunch of towels and stuffed it in The Dipper's gym bag. You nod and smile a patronizing smile. And then he starts to tell you about that time on the White House lawn, when he was again in charge of the ball, this one signed by every member of the 1983 NBA champion Philadelphia 76ers, how he was just doing his job when President Reagan came out, took the ball from him, clowned around and shook his hand.

Jeff Millman touched many people's lives during a half-century of service to the 76ers. Many of the greatest names in franchise history returned to honor him Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center against the Miami Heat. Among the former Sixers on hand were Julius Erving, Charles Barkley, Allen Iverson, Moses Malone, Billy Cunningham, Bobby Jones, Darryl Dawkins, and Doug Collins. In a pregame ceremony, the Sixers dedicated their locker room to Millman, a longtime equipment manager who had several jobs with the team over the years.

CHARLES BARKLEY is telling it like it is. Again. Sir Charles played three seasons at Auburn before going onto a stellar NBA career. So it would stand to reason that he hates Alabama. Why then is he is considering rooting for the Tide against Texas A&M tomorrow? Two words: Johnny Manziel "Johnny Manziel, he's doing something I never thought was possible," Barkley said on the Waddle and Silvy show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago recently. "He's going to make me root for Alabama this weekend.

Josh Harris, majority owner of what remains of the Philadelphia 76ers, said last week that the organization is in the "advanced stages" of buying a D-League franchise. For those keeping count, that will give them two of those. There is no other way to look at the local NBA team at the moment. Getting a minor-league franchise is somewhat redundant for Harris and his merry band of amateurs, but at least a coaching change doesn't run $4.5 million in that league. That's what it cost Harris to achieve some measure of peace when Doug Collins decided to resign but wanted the final year of his contract as a parting gift.

While 76ers general manager Tony DiLeo continues to figure out what to do with Andrew Bynum - known as "Plan A" since being dubbed so by DiLeo a few weeks back - Sixers legend Charles Barkley has some advice. Pass. "They are in a dilemma now," Barkley said by phone Thursday. "I wouldn't give Andrew Bynum any money if I'm running the team. I'm not going to take that chance. " Barkley, a Hall of Fame player who works for Turner Network Television as an analyst on its Inside the NBA show, is preparing for his role as an analyst during the NCAA tournament.

IN HONOR OF his 50th birthday, which was Wednesday, we honor Charles Barkley for saying, "I'm not a role model . . . Just because I dunk a basketball doesn't mean I should raise your kids. " Chuck was right. We should not allow our kids to worship athletes and other sports figures, because we are setting them up for disappointment. Teach them right from wrong and hopefully the rest will take care of itself. Sometimes, it's difficult. When it's a high-profile athlete who is consistently on TV commercials, magazine ads, has his own video game and is on "SportsCenter" every night, hero worship could become inevitable.

CHARLES BARKLEY has an opinion on just about everything. And, apparently, a short memory. On Monday, Barkley appeared on the "Dan Patrick Show" and said that Lakers center Dwight Howard should tell off meddlesome teammate Kobe Bryant. Bryant has said on several occasions that Howard should stop complaining about playing with a shoulder injury. "He should have already told Kobe Bryant to shut the hell up by now, or [tell him he's going to] kick his ass" Barkley said. "He should have done that by now because, as a man, there's only so many times you can call me out publicly.

15th in a Series of 25 THE FAT KID from Leeds did all right for himself. Charles Barkley, once a 300-pound curiosity, went from Alabama to Springfield, Mass., in what seemed like one giant lunge. He is one of the greatest players to ever play the game and will easily appear on a Sixers' Mount Rushmore. But try thinking of an iconic moment that captured him, that defined him. After all, most of his wow moments were not the ones you would want to be remembered by, like spitting on a little girl in New Jersey (with whom he became friendly later on)
