John Swart/APMichael Jordan and Charles Barkley are two of the greatest players to ever play in the NBA and also two of the most notorious gamblers.
Jordan's taste for gambling is particularly well-known, from jaunts to Atlantic City the night before a playoff game, to wagering tons of money on the golf course.
On Thursday, on Dan Patrick's show, Barkley gave a little insight into how much Jordan used to place on rounds of golf.
"We'd be playing golf with certain people, and we'd be playing a couple hundred dollars a hole," Barkley said.
Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesRepublican Rep. Ted Poe of Texas resigned from the House Freedom Caucus on Sunday after the group's opposition to the American Health Care Act contributed to the bill's failure this week.
"In order to deliver on the conservative agenda we have promised the American people for eight years, we must come together to find solutions to move this country forward," Poe said, in a statement first reported by Fox News.
"Saying no is easy, leading is hard, but that is what we were elected to do," he said.
Reuters/Gary Cameron An Arkansas man on death row may get one last chance at clemency when lawyers present previously undisclosed evidence of severe childhood physical and sexual abuse to the parole board on Monday.
Marcel Wayne Williams, 46, one of 8 Arkansas prisoners sentenced for execution in the month of April, was sentenced to death in 1997 for the rape and murder of a young woman in 1994.
Julie Vandiver, William's lawyer, filed a new clemency petition for Williams after Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson signed a declaration in early March to reinstate capital punishment to the state for the first time since 2005.
Williams' execution date is currently set for April 24.
Vandiver told Business Insider that she is petitioning for a review of Williams' case based on the fact that the attorneys who represented Williams' in 1997 did not disclose information about his traumatic past to the jury.
"Nobody ever did what they were supposed to do in Marcel’s case until it was too late," said Vandiver.
Evidence of Williams' childhood came to light in 2006, which new attorneys presented to Arkansas judge Leon Holmes.
