Former NBA star Charles Barkley has undergone an incredible body transformation and is looking slim and trim nowadays.
Barkley, a basketball icon and Hall of Famer, has been working as an analyst on TNT’s Inside the NBA since his retirement from the sport but was on the job alongside longtime colleague Ernie Johnson for the network’s coverage of “The Match” this week.
Apart from looking several pounds lighter, Chuck had a huge announcement that left Ernie in shock. Johnson, who has worked in broadcasting for 40 years, is set to be inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame but had no idea until Barkley broke the news to him on camera.
It was a heartwarming moment, as you must have seen above, but lots of fans were focused on Barkley’s physical transformation.
Barkley had previously revealed being ordered to lose weight by his doctor.
“My doctor told me I was fat. So I’m down 60 pounds,” the 60-year-old revealed during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
“She said to me, ‘There’s no fat old people, only fat young people.’ And she said, ‘If you don’t get this stuff together you’re not gonna be around.’”
Last month, the 1993 NBA MVP told Pat McAfee he was taking a drug called Mounjaro that’s used to treat Type 2 Diabetes but has also been linked to weight loss. He claimed to have gone down from 352 lbs to 290 lbs.
