“How Charles Barkley & my Dad became friends.”

“My Dad grew up in China and moved to the US when he was 28.  He was a really funny guy, he told a lot of stories, and he was very outgoing.

One day he was at a bar, and met Charles Barkley, started talking, went to dinner together, and exchanged #s.  They developed a real friendship.”
