In an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, the Sixers and Suns legend Charles Barkley was asked about comments he made on Tom Brady’s podcast, in which Barkley said he and Michael Jordan haven’t spoken in 10 years due to something he said that offended Jordan.
“It’s a really unfortunate situation for me and him,” Barkley said. “But I’m going to do my job, first and foremost. Because I can’t criticize other coaches and general managers, and give him a pass because he’s my best friend. I just can’t do that.
“What I said was, ‘Michael’s got to surround himself with better people. And I worry about him being successful.’”
