A Barkley doc would be 1000x as interesting as any Jordan doc. And you wouldn't have all the fawning idolatry. Just a dude who is funny and f*cks sh*t up on occasion...and happens to be one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

A 10 episode series on Charles Barkley would be entertaining as hell

THIS. Total respect to Jordan's accomplishments, but Barkley is a thousand times more interesting/engaging/funny. Too bad he didn't get a ring.

Can one of the episodes be about this:

According to the officer who wrote the report, "He told me that he ran the stop sign because he was in a hurry to pick up the girl I saw get in the passenger seat."
The officer continues: "He asked me to admit that she was 'hot.' He asked me, 'You want the truth?' When I told him I did he said, 'I was gonna drive around the corner and get a blow job. He then explained that she had given him a 'blow job' one week earlier and said it was the best one he had ever had in his life."

I had no interest in watching the Jordan documentary, but I would watch a Barkley one.

You guys are nuts. A documentary about Barkley would not be anywhere near as good as The Last Dance was. I love me some prime Barkley but seriously? His prime was losing to MJ in 6 games in the Finals and then blowing leads against the Rockets thd next two years. And a really bad back. Sorry, but The Last Dance was simply inspiring. Barkley's shiat would be like watching real housewives in comparison.

You can pretend that being a petty asshole and making excuses that it was necessary is inspiring, but that's not a great way to live.

Its cool. You've never played sports. I understand. I'm sure you're super gifted in other areas your mother tells you.

Thank you, Captain Obvious. Go have a cold one. You deserve it. Hope Ric Romero is there at your BBQ.

Jordan never stood toe to toe with The Big Diesel, and chose to hit him in the head with a basketball. No other moment can be more iconic than when Barkley realizes he made a turrible mistake.
Barkley for POTUS 2020!

I agree.  But also, an actual doc would be 100x as interesting as that Jordan whatever you call it.

Docs are supposed to be unbiased.
