Remember when Michael Jordan was spotted playing beer pong a couple of months back? No one really saw that coming. Charles Barkley was one of those people, as he stated that ‘black people don’t play beer pong’ when asked about MJ partaking in a game. However, it looks like he’s changed his tune.
Check out this clip of Barkley from the HLN network, as he plays in his first ever game of beer pong. Spoiler – He’s not great:
It looked like he was finally getting the hang of things by his third shot. The underhand or sidearm tactic he was using, simply wasn’t going to get the job done. Once he shot it like a free throw, then he started looking respectable.
His reaction to the game was classic Sir Charles. He concluded as many people do, that there aren’t any real losers in beer pong. Even if you don’t make all your shots first, you still get to drink beer.
Will the Round Mound of Rebound become a regular participant in the popular drinking game? I’m going to doubt it. He’s certainly in no position to quit his day job (or late night job) as a studio analyst for TNT on Inside the NBA.
