Barkley opened up about why he is not friends with Jordan anymore on “The Seth Davis Show,” according to sportingnews.com.
“He was offended by some things I said about him on television,” Barkley said. “I said Michael wasn’t doing a good job — he’s doing a great job now, (the Hornets have) gotten better,” he said.
He added, “they’ve made some great signings — but they weren’t doing good and I thought he didn’t have good people around him.”
He continued with, “and I said that, because I was asked that question. Your job is to be an analyst. It’s not to protect your friends … no, he’s not feeling that.”
Back in 2012, Barkley discussed how Jordan reacted to him criticizing his abilities as a general manager. He didn’t take the news too well.
“I thought my name was SOB and MF,” Barkley told USA Today Sports. “Dude I can’t get on the radio and tell people you’re doing a good job … Michael is as cheap as they come.”
