It’s hard to tell if Jordan took Barkley’s joke personally, but what he said next changed
 

 

It’s no secret that even though they rivaled each other during their prime, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley were once thick as thieves. The two NBA Hall of Famers used to enjoy the company of each other even outside basketball, and like any other close pals, MJ and Chuck often roasted each other.


Charles doesn’t know how it feels

It was undeniably an epic scene whenever the cameras caught Jordan and Barkley mocking one another. And fans were delighted with a lengthy back and forth courtesy of the pair when they appeared on Oprah in 2004.

As expected, neither of the NBA legends backed down from teasing each other on national TV. Jordan destroyed Barkley by poking fun at his terrible golfing skills. On the other hand, Chuck hit back by revealing how stingy a multi-millionaire “His Airness” is in person.


When Oprah brought up the topic of riding motorcycles, which happened to be one of MJ’s newfound hobbies at the time, Barkley got the better of his former NBA Finals foe once again.

Sir Charles quickly replied “hell no” when asked if he had ever ridden a motorcycle like Jordan. In his defense, Barkley pointed out that he’ll never do it as he just wouldn’t risk his life the way MJ did every time he went for a ride.

“I hate the fact that he [Jordan] rides motorcycles ’cause it scares me to death. It’s not safe. It’s just not safe,” Barkley stressed.


The 1993 NBA MVP then emphasized that helmets don’t guarantee safety, and Jordan was just too “stubborn” that his head was so hard he didn’t even need one when riding.

“His head is mighty, he don’t need no helmet for his head,” Barkley joked. “He’s the most stubborn person you ever gonna meet in your life.”

Everybody in the studio laughed, and even Jordan found Barkley’s joke hilarious at one point. However, it didn’t last long. In a matter of seconds, the smile on MJ’s face went away, and a deep voice with an evidently serious tone barged in and uttered, “I disagree.”

It’s hard to tell if Jordan took Barkley’s joke personally, but what he said next changed the vibe and the entire atmosphere for a few seconds. The six-time NBA champion apparently knew how to put Barkley in his place. And for MJ, there’s no better way but to remind him a bit that he never won a championship.

“When you think about it. When you ride a motorcycle, you have to be a defensive driver,” Jordan began. “You don’t have time to talk on the phone, you don’t have time to eat, you don’t have time to do a lot of things most people do every single day, which is more dangerous than riding a motorcycle. You have to be really focused on seeing the traffic ahead. He doesn’t know about this. He’s never ridden a motorcycle.”

“He never understand what it takes to be a…winner.”
Barkley was speechless, but he acknowledged that there was “something” behind that explanation. Jordan then put a grin on his face and playfully questioned, “Did I say something wrong? Did I say something bad?”

Things got serious

No matter how hard Jordan and Barkley ridiculed each other on the said Oprah appearance, it did not affect their friendship. Both were sport enough to suck all the insults up and carry on. However, nobody knew at the time that the fun would also come to an end and things would get serious.

During an interview in 2014, ten years after that Oprah episode, Barkley revealed that he and Jordan were no longer on speaking terms. According to Chuck, it started with something negative he said on national TV about the Charlotte Bobcats, the team Jordan owns.

“I think that Michael was upset about something I said about the Bobcats that were obviously true,” Barkley confessed. “First of all, he is doing a much better job. A couple of years ago they had one of the worst records in NBA history and Michael didn’t do a great job. I always loved him as a brother but I will do my job first and foremost. I am not going to get on tv and being dishonest to people. They know when you are being dishonest and disingenuous. I am going to do my job.”

It’s real

For those who are thinking maybe it was just a hoopla to add flavor to Barkley’s TV shows, you’re wrong. In fact, Jordan was even caught awkwardly snubbing Barkley at the NBA 75 ceremony.

That Boi Barkley was being very honest during the Oprah interview that even she said at one point "Charles you don't have to be this honest!"

Ole Michael was boiling mad underneath! Charles done digged himself a grave with Mike.

I hear you.

Sometimes though people are just in your life for a season, and there's no going back once it's over. I think we've all been through that.

I feel you, but nothing wrong with moving on if it's time to do so. It's as if some things have expiration dates.

Michael Jordan isn't sensitive. Barkley is a big mouth clown that doesn't know how to stay on code and he's always been a gossiping POS that has always ran his mouth about Jordan's personal business hoping to publicly embarrass and humiliate Jordan and knock Jordan off of his pedestal.

You don't see Wayne Gretzky sh*tting on Mario Lemieux publicly or Carmelo Anthony or D. Wade airing out LeBron publicly.

What are you talking about?

You act like Jordan is Darryl Strawberry.

Jordan only made $93 million dollars in the NBA and ended up a multi-billionaire.

Jordan is one of the greatest Athlete-businessman in history.

A lot of black people hate this interview because they think Jordan was supposed to give away all of his money to the poor and to parasitic leeching shiftless bums.

Hating a*s jealous black people like you most likely would've loved if Jordan lost all of his money or ended up like Lawrence Taylor or Darryl Strawberry.
