Charles Barkley, Phoenix Suns
What started as a friendship has ended in an icy war of words. It’s rumored the pair once played 48 holes of golf on the eve of Game 4 of the 1993 NBA Finals. Allegedly Jordan kept him on the links to tire him out.
Barkley denies the event happened, but Jordan went on to score 55 the next night as the Bulls took a 3-1 series lead. In recent years, the former frenemies have fallen out and Barkley has criticized Jordan’s ownership failures with the Charlotte Hornets.
