Who is Charles Barkley?
Charles Wade Barkley was born in Leeds, Alabama USA, on 20 February 1963 – his zodiac sign is Pisces and he holds American nationality.
He is known as ‘Sir Charles’ and ‘the Chuckster’. and is recognised to be one of the best basketball power forwards of all times – Charles was in 1993 named the National Basketball Association (NBA) Most Valuable Player (MVP), while he was a member of the All-NBA Team 11 times.
He was raised in Leeds alongside his brother Darryl by their mother, as their father left the family and divorced their mother not long after Charles was born. Charles’ mother had a son with her second husband John Glenn, but the boy died during infancy, while John died in an accident in 1974.
Charles studied at Leeds High School and there started playing basketball.
Just a year before matriculation, he attracted the attention of multiple colleges, and in 1981 chose to enrol at Auburn University to study business management. He played center position for the college’s basketball team, but dropped out a year before graduation to play in the NBA – he was picked by the Philadelphia 76ers, and after seven years with them on 26 March 1991 was involved in a spitting incident. A fan insulted Charles and he spat at him, but instead hit a young girl – Charles was suspended for a day without pay, but he eventually became friends with the girl and her family, and also gave them free tickets for his following matches.
Charles stayed with the Philadelphia 76ers until 1992 when he joined the Phoenix Suns, and played with them until 1996 when he signed a contract with the Houston Rockets – his final season was 1999-2000 when he retired.
He went on to work at Turner Network Television as their studio analyst covering NBA games, and has also worked at CBS covering the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Men’s Division I Basketball Tournaments. He apparently wanted to retire from broadcasting in 2016 but still extended his contract, which is now set to expire in 2023.
Charles is known as a compulsive gambler, and in a 2007 interview revealed that he’d lost around $10 million by gambling, once losing $2.5 million during six hours of blackjack.
He is also interested in politics, and on 27 October 2008 announced he would become a candidate for Governor of Alabama, but announced in 2010 that he was retiring from the race. It’s known that he supports the LGBT community, and fights for their rights including gay marriage. He’s openly criticized the President of the United States of America Donald Trump.
Charles is a writer too, having released his autobiography “Outrageous” in collaboration with sportswriter Roy S. Johnson in 1991, while his second book “I May Be Wrong, But I Doubt It” was released in 2002. In 2005, he released his third book “Who’s Afraid of a Large Black Man?”
