Charles Barkley Gives Aristotelian Explanation for Michael Jordan Rift

Charles Barkley Gives Aristotelian Explanation for Michael Jordan Rift

Sir Charles knows controversy. He also knows the Nicomachean Ethics.

Charles Barkley has ridiculed Michael Jordan’s facial hair on national television and divulged to Conan O’Brien that one of the richest men in sports is “cheap.” But the Round Mound of Rebound thinks that something else explains the rift between the formerly tight friends. 

The Bobcats changed their name after last season to the Charlotte Hornets, which served as the name of city’s basketball team before it moved to New Orleans. Jordan owns the team. 

“I love him like a brother,” Barkley said, but “I can’t get on TV and be dishonest with people.”

Did Barkley run into Aristotle at Auburn?

The Greek philosopher famously explained his love for his friends but his greater love for the truth in passages criticizing the ideas of the Platonists. Anticipating the basketball philosopher, Aristotle declared: “Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.”
