In an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday, Charles Barkley said he once played in an NBA game drunk and doesn't remember what happened - it's a miracle he even got on the court.
Barkley could not remember the exact year, somewhere in the late 1980s if memory serves, when he was told by his agent he was on his way to Los Angeles.
“I get a call from my agent one morning, and he says, ‘I think we’ve got a deal, you’re going to the Lakers,’” Barkley recounted. “… I was so excited, so me and my boys went out to celebrate. We started getting drunk in the middle of the day.”
Barkley said he doesn't remember anything from that night's game."First off, I was so p-----, but I was so drunk too," Barkley said. "I can remember a lot of games I played, but that day we were so excited I was getting out of Philadelphia and I was blasted I'm not going to lie."
Problem is that about 3 hours into the booze sesh, Chuck's agent called back and said the deal was off and he needed to be ready to play for Philly THAT NIGHT.
Barkley says it's the only time he ever played drunk -- but he played HUNGOVER a bunch of times.
