The always outspoken NBA legend and current television analyst Charles Barkley joins The Pivot in a wide open discussion on topics from his playing days, competing against MJ, criticism of his recent political and racial stances to his current tv career winding down.

With only two years left on his television contract, Barkley is ready to sign off from the public eye and at peace with going into full retirement. “Fame is hard, a lot of prices to pay with fame,” he explains to Ryan, Fred and Channing and it’s ok to step back from it. Against social media and calling out people who hide behind it, Barkley explains the different world we live in right now and how everything thought and statement is under a microscope. Ignoring opinions that he is too controversial, Barkley defends his stances on certain hot topics recently especially with race crimes, police treatment and politics.
