There is a nice piece up at Sports Illustrated discussing Charles Barkley's first ever subway ride in New York CIty. They also included the above video with the article, which features Barkley talking with fans, showing confusion with the Metrocard system, and of course, ragging on the Nets and the Knicks. I know the cameras were still technically on him, but Barkley remains one of the more engaging personaliites in TV even when the lights aren't on him.
