It appears Charles Barkley keeps up with NBA dating gossip talks.
On a recent Inside The NBA, the crew was going over some Minnesota Timberwolves highlights, which included Malik Beasley.
Barkley said that Beasley was having a “hell of a year.”
That was a reference to Beasley being photographed with Larsa Pippen, who is the estranged wife of NBA legend Scottie Pippen. The photos of Beasley together with Pippen angered Beasley’s wife, who filed for divorce.
For the record, Barkley and Pippen were teammates on the Houston Rockets in the late 90s. While it was brief, they definitely didn’t get along much. Pippen even questioned Barkley’s conditioning towards the end of the season saying I see why you never won a championship. Barkley clearly has no problems laughing at this situation.
Beasley isn’t an All-Star level talent on the court, but off it, he seems to like the All-Star attention.
