Charles Barkley agreed to a “life-altering” cope with Turner Sports earlier this month.

The previous NBA star turned “Contained in the NBA” analyst signed a 10-year, nine-figure deal to stay with the network.

“We’re all an enormous family — Ernie, Kenny and Shaquille are brothers to me — and I would not still be here if it wasn’t for them and all of the amazing individuals who work on our show,” Barkley said. “I’m not gonna lie, though, it is a life-altering deal … and I’m blessed to find a way to do live television for a living.”

Barkley has family at Turner Sports, together with family at home.

The legendary NBA star has been married to his wife, Maureen, for a very long time.

Charles and Maureen reportedly met while he was with the Philadelphia 76ers. The completely happy couple has one daughter together. 

The completely happy couple has been together for greater than 30 years at this point.

“Well, No. 1 I’m gone so much. That all the time helps,” the 11-time All-Star joked to Renee Paquette. “I feel the primary reason is she accepts my flaws and all. She doesn’t judge me, accepts me how I’m, she’s an amazing mother.”

Barkley, who works out of Turner Sports’ studios in Atlanta, also resides within the Phoenix, Arizona area.

He likes to play golf.

Cheatsheet had more on the connection:

She met her future hubby within the late ’80s at a Pennsylvania restaurant called City Avenue. On the time she was working as a legal aid and model promoting Noblerex K-1, and Sir Charles was playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, the team that chosen him with the fifth pick within the 1984 NBA Draft.

The pair tied the knot in 1989 and have been together ever since. Today, they reside in Scottsdale, Arizona, and have managed to maintain their relationship out of the highlight.

We wish Charles and his family all one of the best moving forward.
