BARKLEY'S SUPERCRUISE NOT SO SUPER FOR FANS
Published July 27, 1995
CHARLES BARKLEY's failure to attend his week-long "Sir Charles and Friends Supercruise!" to Bermuda July 15 is examined in this week's SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. Barkley backed out of the trip two days before it sailed because of "the inability of the promotor to provide contractually required liability insurance and the non-payment" of half of his fee, according to his attorney. Other NBA players on the cruise did attend. KURT RAMBIS took over many of Barkley's duties. NBA fans on the cruise, who paid $1,000 more than other passengers to interact with Barkley events, were not refunded (Leigh Montville, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, 7/31 issue).
