Just because you're amazing at one thing doesn't mean you're amazing at everything, as watching this video of basketball legend Charles Barkley reporting the weather proves.

Granted, no one is hiring the superstar athlete for his meteorological prowess. The video is a simply a fun segment that the ABC Phoenix news team put together. Just try and not laugh as Barkley walks right into the middle of the weather report, asking "what's the weather in Scottsdale?" When the actual professional meteorologist on the news team informs him that Phoenix is right there on the map, Barkley counters with the fact that he doesn't live in Phoenix, he lives in Scottsdale, a suburb of the massive Arizona city.

The video is a lot of fun to watch because everyone involved seems to be having a great time reporting the weather alongside the fun loving NBA legend. Stats for Superstar Athlete Meteorologists Trending: Older & Chilly
