Sir Charles’s only biological brother, Darryl Barkley, was born on November 9, 1996. Darryl was married and had a lovely daughter, Daryl-Marie Barkley.

The younger brother used alcohol and drugs, and his excessive substance abuse led to severe heart problems.

In 2003, Barkley underwent a heart transplant, adding six years to his life.

Even after the transplantation, he didn’t stop taking drugs and alcohol, resulting in his death. Darryl died on March 20, 2009, at the age of 42.

After going through so much, Davis finally looked healthy and stable, and his strong gameplay had the Warriors on the ropes.

After the game ended, Shaq, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, and Charles Barkley were on “Inside the NBA,” where they were discussing the game.

While they were discussing the injury to Davis, Shaq began crumpling paper, indicating Anthony was “soft” due to the history of Davis’ injuries.

And Charles was caught laughing, to which he explained, “Shaq is over there crumbling up paper. That’s what I was laughing at.”

After that, Shaq also started to laugh. Likewise, Kenny “The Jet” Smith was trying hard to give his commentary, but he also began to hold his laughter like Shaq and Charles.
