If you ever wondered what the last item on Charles Barkley’s bucket list is, wonder no more.
The answer is simple: murder. Specifically, murdering former ESPN and current Fox Sports shouter Skip Bayless.
Barkley shared his morbid fantasy during a wide-ranging interview Thursday on “The Dan Patrick Show.”
Near the end of the interview, in the midst of a rambling declaration about his love of the radio show, Barkley stopped himself mid-sentence to say, “You know what we should do for ratings? If I get a disease and I’m gonna die, how about you get Skip Bayless in here and I’ll kill him live on national television?”
“I like it, like pay-per-view,” Patrick said, playing the role of straight man to perfection.
“No, no, no,” Barkley butted back in, “just get him in here. Only when I know I’m going to die. … Cause I just want to get Skip Bayless in a room one time and beat him like a dog.”
Without missing a beat, Patrick chimed in, “OK, so you’d kill him.”
“Yes. Only if I knew I was gonna die,” Sir Charles finished up. “Not if I’m gonna live, cause I don’t wanna go to prison. Cause like [Rick] Mahorn say, ‘They would love you in prison.’”
Bayless was on the air Friday morning, but hadn’t responded to Barkley at the time of publication.
