Charles Barkley says Michael Jordan ‘went ballistic’ in their most recent conversation

Feb 4, 2023

Hall of Famer Charles Barkley provided some insight on the last conversation he had with basketball icon Michael Jordan.

The always outspoken broadcaster revealed the last time Jordan spoke to him was via a profanity-filled phone call.

The pair's severed relationship stems from remarks Barkley made in 2012 when he critiqued Jordan's performance as a team executive.

"I said, ‘Listen, the toughest thing about Michael, he's got to put better people around him.’ Because the toughest thing, when you're famous, they’re on your private jet. You're buying all the drinks. You're buying all the dinners. Very few people are gonna be honest with you,'" Barkley recalled in November during an appearance on the "Let’s Go!" podcast with Tom Brady and Jim Gray.
