Charles Barkley Confirms He Used to Eat McDonald's on Bike at Sixers Practice

Earlier this week, former Philadelphia 76ers forward Jayson Williams told Ben Detrick and Jordan Redaelli of Vice Sports’ Cookies podcast that Charles Barkley ate McDonald's while yelling at his Sixers teammates on a stationary bike during practice. 

It’s true.

Sir Charles confirmed the story on Saturday’s edition of SportsCenter:

When I got to Philadelphia, Dr. J, Moses Malone, Maurice Cheeks—they never practiced. They’d sit on the side, on the stationary bike, eating McDonald's. So, once I had been in the league X amount of years, I adopted that philosophy. I had played 48 minutes the night before, I wasn’t going to get up the next morning and go to practice.

The big man had been with Philly for six years before Williams joined the team in 1990-91.

After confirming the story, Barkley transitioned into his meal of choice: egg McMuffins, hot cakes and sausage…all wrapped up together.
