Charles Oakley on Charles Barkley: We're not inviting him to play golf no more

- by

Along with setting the record straight on the long-told story of Oakley’s fight with Barkley at a late-1990s players’ association meeting — “I did not punch Charles Barkley,” Oakley clarifies in the book. “I did, however, slap the s— out of him” — Oakley refuted Barkley’s recent public claims that their relationship has since become cordial. “He’s not close with Michael (Jordan) no more. I don’t know who he’s really on (good) terms with now,” Oakley said of Barkley. “So I know he wants to come to the cookout and play 18 holes with us. But we’re not inviting him no more. He’s out. You act up, you go stand in the corner with one leg in the air …. That’s Charles, in the corner of the playground by himself. You can see him, because he’s kind of big.”

More on this storyline

But all this Grizzlies fun is too much for LeBron James, who didn’t make it past the free throw line in the backcourt during Memphis’ latest highlight. A minute later, a Lakers turnover leads to another fast break for the Grizzlies. Bane swishes a trailer 3 — wide open because James is slow getting back in transition — and lets the all-time great know about it: “Them footsteps ain’t scaring nobody.” -via ESPN / February 3, 2022
James has seen and heard enough, especially from Bane. James breaks up the Grizzlies’ party in the paint to confront him under the basket. “That’s your last time,” James says to Bane, loud enough to be heard clearly on the local television broadcast. “That’s your last motherf—ing time. That’s your last time disrespecting me.” -via ESPN / February 3, 2022
And the trash-talking ensued. But it was all one-sided. Curry never said a word back to Porter. “I highly encourage it,” said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr of players jarring with Curry. “I think he’s unfazed by it, to be honest,” Juan Toscano-Anderson said. “He finds it comedic. I mean, he’s great. He’s gonna do what he does. … What do y’all say? Steph’s gonna Steph.” -via ESPN / February 1, 2022
