Charles Barkley was an All-Star for the Sixers and Suns, but Sir Charles went on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and told a crazy story about a brief moment in time where he thought he was headed to the Lakers in the late 80’s.
Barkley said his agent called him one morning and told him he was finalizing a deal to send him to the Lakers. Upon getting the news, an ecstatic Barkley and his crew started day drinking to celebrate.
Several hours later, the agent called back and broke the news to Charles that the deal had fallen through. Unfortunately for the sauced Barkley, the Sixers had a game that night that he ended up playing in, still hammered. He doesn’t remember much.
Gather ’round for story time with Sir Charles. Who knew he was THIS close to teaming up with Magic?
