BARKLEY'S SUPERCRUISE NOT SO SUPER FOR FANS

     CHARLES BARKLEY's failure to attend his week-long "Sir
Charles and Friends Supercruise!" to Bermuda July 15 is examined
in this week's SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.  Barkley backed out of the
trip two days before it sailed because of "the inability of the
promotor to provide contractually required liability insurance
and the non-payment" of half of his fee, according to his
attorney.  Other NBA players on the cruise did attend.  KURT
RAMBIS took over many of Barkley's duties. NBA fans on the
cruise, who paid $1,000 more than other passengers to interact
with Barkley events, were not refunded (Leigh Montville, SPORTS
ILLUSTRATED, 7/31 issue).
