“Barkley added: "I'm confused [as] to where he's going." Barkley said he has heard the claims that he and Michael Jordan were a bad influence on Woods, but Barkley adamantly denied that he and Jordan knew details about Woods' extramarital affairs. "It was interesting sitting back and listening and hearing me and Michael corrupted him, [yet] we knew none of this stuff was going in," Barkley said. The absence of communication with Woods for the past two years still puzzles Barkley. "I'm sitting back like everyone else and saying, what the hell is going on? I just feel sad, to be honest with you," Barkley said. "You're like, dude, who is around this guy, who has his back, who has his best interest, who doesn't want anything from him? I don't know why we haven't talked to him in a couple of years." Matt Ehalt is a regular contributor to ESPNNewYork.com.
You think you're friends with a guy. ... I haven't talked to (Tiger Woods) in two years and I'm wondering what the hell is going on.” -- Charles Barkley
