Charles Barkley has a hilarious fear that he will be too fat for his daughter’s upcoming Jewish wedding, which is why he’s been working out.
Charles Barkley truly is the gift that keeps on giving. During his tenure as an NBA player, many saw him as purely a serious figure. But as his tenure at TNT’s ‘Inside the NBA’ has carried on, he has become somewhat of a sweetheart to fans of the league.
Recently, the former MVP went live with Jimmy Kimmel on the latter’s late-night show. This was mainly to promote the upcoming documentary called ‘The Inside Story’, starring the Inside Crew. But as the interview went on it took a very funny turn.
Charles Barkley has been working out for a tradition in his daughter’s Jewish wedding
During the interview, Jimmy Kimmel seemed to notice that Chuck looked a bit skinnier. When he asked him about it, this is what the former NBA player had to say:
“I’ve been really working out hard because apparently, they’ve got to pick me up in a chair.”
Barkley continued on the matter, making a comment that has viewers bawling in laughter.
“Listen, I need all Jewish people on deck, brother. Cause I can only get so skinny by Saturday, man”

As the interview went on, Kimmel and Chuck went on about the wedding further. The latter even revealed that his to-be son-in-law asked him for his blessing. Barkley admitted this made him incredibly emotional at the time.
Jimmy Kimmel also asked if the Inside Crew will be at the wedding. Barkley said that wouldn’t be the case due to the All-Star weekend. But he also said that he wouldn’t miss anyone but Ernie Johnson during his time away.
Overall, this is a very happy time for the NBA great. And while we will miss him during the All-Star break, we wish his family a very happy time.
