Charles Barkley has stepped up his feud with Michael Jordan, asserting that he still has the legendary Chicago Bull’s number. Since Barkley made remarks on Inside the NBA that Jordan found offensive, the two former NBA superstars have been estranged.
Jordan must encircle himself with superior people, according to Barkley, who recently stated his opinion in an interview. This is the only way Jordan will succeed as a league executive. Jordan took offense, according to Barkley, when he told him this in front of him.
Barkley declared that he would voice his mind once again if given the opportunity and that he was devoid of remorse about doing so. He declared that he would not withdraw from Jordan and that he did not fear him.
“He’s got my number,” Barkley said. “But I’m not gonna back down. I’m not gonna apologize for telling the truth.” (h/t via Twitter)
One of the most well-known NBA rivalries in history involved Jordan and Barkley. It demonstrates the two men’s competitive drive and their determination to stay in a battle. Though it is unknown if the two will ever make amends, their feud still seems to be going strong.
Charles Barkley wants to end disputes with Michael Jordan
Charles Barkley has expressed a desire to end his dispute with Michael Jordan. After Barkley voiced some disparaging remarks regarding Jordan’s work as a team executive, the two legendary NBA superstars have been estranged for a while.
Barkley recently stated in an interview that he would be ready to apologize to Jordan in order to repair their friendship. “I know what I said, and it was the truth,” Barkley said. “But if it offended him, I’m sorry. I’d like to get back to being friends with him.”
Jordan and Barkley were formerly great friends, but that changed after Barkley’s remarks in 2012. Jordan apparently took Barkley’s criticism very personally, and the two haven’t spoken since.
Barkley promised to talk to Jordan about ending the conflict “man-to-man” in that statement. “I’d just tell him that I’m sorry if I offended him,” Barkley said. “And I’d ask him if we could just put this behind us and move on.”
Barkley’s willingness to express regret is a good first step, and it might help the two ex-stars mend ties. It is yet to be known whether Michael Jordan decides to let go of the beef and reconcile his friendship with Charles Barkley.
