Sir Charles Sez: Jordan Would Feel Disrespected When They Had a White Guy Cover Him

Sir Charles Sez: Jordan Would Feel Disrespected When They Had a White Guy Cover Him

Charles Barkley was a guest on 94 WIP this afternoon with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow to talk everything sports. From Jrue Holiday turning into an All-Star point guard for the next 10 seasons to winning money on last night's Seattle Seahawks game thanks to the Niners declining a safety to Michael Jordan's legendary trash talk, Chuck touched on it all.

It doesn't get much better than Barkley unscripted. Perhaps the best nugget to come out of today's call was when Sir Charles went into a tale about when he played Jordan in the NBA Finals.

It all started when Ant brought up a story about Jordan calling Muggsy Bogues a "bleeping midget," which apparently went on to haunt the rest of his career.

That's when Barkley dug into his MJ archives.

"I gotta tell you this funny Michael Jordan story," Barkley starts off. "We're playing the Bulls for the championship and we come out of a timeout. Micheal's BS'ing and BS'ing, I don't even know what he's talking about. He's like, 'Man, this is bull. This is bull!'"

"Man, you guys got a white guy guarding me!"

"I said, 'dude what are you talking about,'" Barkley said.

"It's disrespectful," Jordan apparently responded.

Charles went on to say that Larry Bird once told him the same thing, that he also thought it was disrespectful when a white guy would be guarding him.

"I was laughing so hard every time they said that," Barkley said.

I guess that means Dan Majerle was disrespecting NBA players his entire career.

Penn can't stop Chase Edmonds in loss to Fordham

BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.

Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).

Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.

Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.

Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.

Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.

Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.
