Barkley told a story on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!".

Barkley said the drunk game in Philadelphia was the only game he played intoxicated, adding that he has played hung over in games before.

During an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show this week, Barkley revealed that he played an National Basketball Association game drunk because he spent the day celebrating after his agent told him that he had been traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. Ecstatic with the news, Barkley did what everyone else would do; he day drank with his friends. "I remember I was so pissed, but I was so drunk".

When Kimmel asked if that was the only time he's played drunk, Barkley quickly barked "no" back.

"I don't remember anything about that game", he said. He then double-downed on the comment.

While playing for the Sixers in the late '80s, Barkley said he learned he was being traded to the Lakers. I have played hungover before.

For those who haven't seen it, Kimmel has a recurring segment called "Mean Tweets" where celebrities, athletes and other famous guests read the mean things written about them on Twitter. The story begins around the three-minute mark.
