Charles Barkley Offers to Kill Skip Bayless on Live TV — But Only If Barkley Were to Become Terminally Ill

NBA legend Charles Barkley really does not like Fox Sports 1’s Skip Bayless.

In a 2015 appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” he called the former ESPN “First Take” host a “scumbag.”

Thursday on the show, Barkley said if he gets terminally ill, Patrick should bring him and Bayless on so he can “beat him like a dog” and kill him.

Partial transcript as follows, starting around the 40:54 mark:

BARKLEY: You know what we should do for ratings? I see you’ve got all these TVs out. If I get a disease and I’m gonna die, how about you get Skip Bayless in here and I kill him live on national television.

PATRICK: I like it. Like pay-per-view.

BARKLEY: No, no, no. Just get him in here. Only when I know I’m going to die because I just want to get Skip Bayless in a room one time and just beat him like a dog.

PATRICK: So you’d kill him.

BARKLEY: Yes. Only if I knew I was gonna die. Not if I’m gonna live, because I don’t wanna go to prison. [L]ike Mahorn says, “They would love you in prison.”
