Before we get into this, let us say upfront that this is nothing like the “Shaquille O’Neal interviewing for Magic GM job” debacle from last month. Nothing here says Barkley is a candidate for the job. All that has happened so far is that Barkley has told 94WIP’s Anthony Gargano that he is interested in the Sixers GM job.
If the Sixers are looking for their next general manager, Charles Barkley is interested in applying for the job.
94WIP’s Anthony Gargano is reporting that Charles Barkley would be interesting in becoming the new Sixers general manager. Gargano asked Barkley via text message if he’d be interested in being the Sixers GM, and Barkley responded “yes sir.”
Barkley knows that he has no chance of getting the job. All he was doing was answering a question honestly. But it sure doesn’t hurt to let people know that you would be interested in getting back into basketball.
Who knows, it may help him down the road.
