Charles Barkley professes his love for Tom Brady on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Charles Barkley talked about his friendship with Bill Belichick and what happened when he looked Tom Brady in the eyes. 

When you're a star like Charles Barkley, it takes a lot to rattle you. Well, it turns out Tom Brady is an exception to the rule.

Charles was a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this week, and he talked about his unlikely friendship with Bill Belichick.

"He's really a great guy. Like I said, I met him when he was coaching the Browns. He's a great guy," Charles said. "He's funny when you're around him and get to know him."

While the Patriots were in Atlanta, Coach Belichick invited Charles to watch the team practice, and that's where he loses his cool in hilarious fashion.

"I made a mistake, Jimmy. I looked Tom Brady in the eyes," he said. "I'm looking at all these guys, then all of a sudden I look at Gronk and then Tom Brady's like right here. I look him in the eyes, and I said, 'Damn, you a pretty man.'"

Charles said he got noticeably embarrassed talking to Tom and thinks he knows why the GOAT has so much success on the field.

"I can see why he scores all them touchdowns because the defense is looking at his eyes, and they get mesmerized," he said. "That Tom Brady, he's a pretty man y'all. He's a nice guy too, but man, I can't look him in the eyes again."
