Charles Barkley once publicly made a hilarious joke based on his race right after his retirement from the NBA
To most current NBA fans, Charles Barkley is known as one of the funnier NBA analysts on television. And frankly, it’s completely justified.
At the end of the day, while his ‘analysis’ is not exactly top-notch, the man’s jokes on live television seldom fail to get fans chocking on their water.
Before his career on TNT though, Charles Barkley had just finished up an incredible NBA career. Over the course of his 8 seasons in the league, the Hall of Famer accumulated 11 All-Star selections, An All-Star MVP, a Rebounding championship, 11 All-NBA selections, and as Michael Jordan will remember, an MVP.
Fair to say that the man went down as one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA to ever win a championship. But, right after the end of his playing career, Chuck didn’t really know what he would do next. And when he was publicly asked about it back then, he responded with a frankly, hilarious joke.
Without further ado, let’s get into it.
