Charles Barkley admitted during an interview this week that aired on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that he once played in an NBA game “blasted.” And it gets better as Barkley claims to have no recollection of the game whatsoever.
Barkley said it all happened when he was informed he had been traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Los Angeles Lakers in the late 1980s.
“I was so excited, so me and my boys went out to celebrate and we started getting drunk in the middle of the day,” Barkley said. “My agent calls me back about three hours later and said ‘the Sixers pulled out of the deal,’ and we got a game that night.
Barkley insists that was the only instance when he played in an NBA game drunk. However, Barkley says he played hungover plenty of times.
