I can’t think of another athlete that I would rather hang out with than Charles Barkley.
We be drinking, throwing jerks through windows, hitting shitty golf shots, spitting on kids, and telling the greatest stories ever.
Barkley was playing in a charity softball game hosted by Dirk Nowitzki and told a story of the first time he played against Dirk and how he lit up “best defender in the world” Scottie Pippen for 50 points at a Nike “Hoop Heroes Tour” in Germany in 1997.
After seeing a young Dirk play, Barkley went back to Nike officials and told them to let Nowitzki know that he would “give him anything he wants to go to Auburn.”
Barkley goes on to talk about how things are done in the SEC. Classic.
