Michael Jordan hasn’t played professional basketball since 2003 but he’s still one of the highest paid athletes in the world. But just because MJ is rolling in the dough doesn’t mean he’s overly generous with his funds and no one knows that better than his good friend Charles Barkley.
“There’s nobody cheaper than Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan … he’s cheap.”
“I always give homeless people money and [MJ will] always slap my hand and says, ‘If they can ask you for spare change they can say ‘Welcome to McDonalds, can I help you please?'”
Barkley says he’s the exact opposite — and believes VERY strongly in tipping huge … “The more successful you are, the more you should tip. I truly believe that.”
I don’t know what to think about this. I’m sure MJ gives through charity, but to have the opinion that just because a homeless person can ask for money they can work at McDonald’s seems a little misguided.
