06:22 PM ET 10.26 | Charles Barkley went on the radio in Chicago and shed some interesting light on his "interactions" with one Michael Jordan. The Chuckster had this to say about His Airness' reaction to being called out for his un-MJ-like performance and an NBA exec: "I thought my name was S.O.B and M.F., like damn, I couldn't even say anything. I said, ‘Dude I can't get on the radio and tell people you been doin' a good job.'" Charles when on to describe Michael as "cheap as they come." Nothing awkward could come from this, right?

When he says "Mj is cheap", he probably means its staff-wise, the people surrounding him, whatever.


We all know MJ isn't a cheapskate, dude doesn't care if he loses 300k or 3 million during a night of poker.

A man with all that money and legacy can't accept the truth from one of his (so-called) best friends. How do you define "lame" -- *JORDAN*.

I generally dont like Barkley because of that 'I can say anything and it's funny fat guy' schtick, but at then end of the day? I think he just knows that he's rich, Jordan is rich and he can say and do anything because they aren't playing games anymore. That is, he wont get his team torched for 50 if he pisses Jordan off...

That horse looked so miserable in that photo for having to carry THAT much weight on its back...

Animal abuse. Call PETA

This moron Barkley who seems to always get things wrong finally got this one right. I however do respect Mike in the sense that he nevers goes around sounding and acting like a fool. I can't say the same for moron Barkley, this highly paid clown and perrenial Knicks basher who BTW has never won anthing himself (idiotic) in terms of rings. His gambling habit is just as notorious as Mike's, not much different there. Tiger and Mike are too dignified to carry themselves as this moron, on the other hand, they are both womanizers so theres flaws their. We all have flaws, its just ours aren't one blast as are theirs. Moron is right though, "Mike has shown that he can be nortoriously cheap", Lockout notwithstanding among others things. "I'm just surprised that this perrenial suck up to Mike and Tiger had the galls to call out one he licks so well"!

You're right, I did notice that as well, it looks like a painstaking process, carrying fatso that is.

Barkley looks so ridiculous on that horse wit the cowboy hat on, I would venture to say only Warren Sapp looked more ridiculous when sitting in the backseat of that convertable with that stupid false smile of his. Whatta a mockery of the word dignified & believeable these two are!
