Former NBA great Charles Barkley appeared Friday NBC Sports Network’s “The Dan Patrick Show” and discussed the early parts of his NBA career, calling out his old agent for stealing from him.
“I signed with a scumbag agent. I don’t want to mention his name: Les Lessnick! If I saw him today, I would blow his damn brains out. I hate that S.O.B.”
Patrick asked Barkley to clarify, “You don’t mean you would shoot him?”
“I would if I had a gun,” responded Barkley. “I would beat his ass down like a dog. That’s the worst thing you can do for somebody, Dan, is steal from them. When you steal from somebody, you are saying to them I don’t respect how hard you worked for your money. When somebody steals from you, that’s what they’re saying. They’re breaking the law like people say they break the law. No. When somebody steals from you, they’re saying to you, ‘I don’t care how hard you work for your money, I want it.’ And Les stole my money. He was a scumbag.”
