While ESPN was dorking out on all things Michael Jordan turning 50, the staff at Turner Sports was busy working on a surprise 50th birthday Charles Barkley (turns 50 on February 20) at this weekend’s all-star festivities. Busted Coverage had boots on the ground with a camera phone to catch Chuck’s birthday speech.
It didn’t disappoint.
Charles, possibly tipsy, kept the message short and sweet.
“Hey, it’s my birthday, y’all have fuckin’ fun.”
