Charles Barkley On The Time He Thought He Was Being Traded To The Lakers And Celebrated Prematurely (Video)
Posted by Steve on February 16 2018
Along with Bill Walton, who we discussed earlier, Charles Barkley is ALSO a national treasure. Every time he opens his mouth, he says something entertaining.

In the clip below from Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Chuck discusses the time back in the late 80s/early 90s when he was still playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, but rumors were swirling that he was being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. Barkley said that he received a call from his agent saying that it was nearly a done deal, so he started celebrating early in the day by getting nice and drunk. Unfortunately, a few hours later, the deal fell through, Barkley was drunk and he had a game to prepare for that night!

The lesson learned here, folks? Wait until the ink on the contract is dry before you crack a few beers to celebrate!
