It’s pretty much common knowledge that Charles Barkley has lost a decent amount of money to high-stakes gambling. But in one of his more recent wagers, it was pride and not money that was on the line. Unfortunately, you can’t cash in pride checks, because Sir Charles actually came out on top with this one, besting Jalen Hurts over the outcome of this past year’s Iron Bowl.
The Alabama quarterback did finally make good on their arrangement, but not without taking one last dig at The Chuckster that you can’t help but respect.
Barkley, who played basketball at Auburn and remains an unabashed fan, made a bet with Hurts before Auburn’s football game with Alabama last November.
If Alabama won, Barkley would wear some type of Crimson Tide gear on camera. If Auburn won, Hurts would do the same.
Auburn won the Iron Bowl but Alabama got the last laugh with a win over Georgia for the national title game.
In a video last night on TNT, Hurts got one up on Barkley.
Got ’em! .
