Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan
On an episode of The Seth Davis Show, former NBA MVP and existing NBA analyst Charles Barkley unveiled why he’s no more friends with jordan, after many years of becoming close.
Barkley states into the movie:
“I think [Jordan] had been offended by some things I said about him on tv. One of the reasons I don’t trust the media is you can’t have a double standard for guys you prefer and dislike. We said Michael ended up beingn’t performing a great task — he’s performing a fantastic job now, [the Charlotte Hornets have actually] gotten better, they’ve made some good signings — nevertheless they weren’t doing good and I also thought he didn’t have good people around him. And I also stated that, because I happened to be expected that question. Your task will be an analyst. it is not to protect your friends … no, he’s perhaps not feeling that.”
Barkley’s spoken about Jordan’s issues with his critique for years. In 2012, Barkley informed USA TODAY Sports that Jordan was so enraged, “I was thinking my title was SOB and MF.”
