Charles Barkley has long voiced his distaste for Undisputed host Skip Bayless.
In fact, in 2011, Barkley actually told Dan Patrick that Bayless was the person he hated most in the world.
Thursday, Barkley appeared on Dan Patrick’s radio show again, and again he took shots at Bayless. Barkley is a huge fan of Patrick, and the former Suns star seems to see Bayless as Patrick's antithesis.
As the interview wound down, Barkley said if he knew he was dying, he’d kill Bayless live on Patrick’s show to boost ratings.
“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,” Barkley said.
He added: “Just get him in here. Only when I know I'm gonna die…Cause I just want to get Skip Bayless in a room one time and beat him like a dog.”
Well, that escalated quickly.
With Barkley’s comment making the rounds online, this probably isn’t the last we’ll hear of this. Bayless likes firing back at people—just ask Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, who started a war with his diss track “Shrimp Bayless.”
The 41-minute interview with Barkley and Patrick yielded a few gems, including one anecdote about His Airness. Barkley said Michael Jordan will only play golf if it’s for money, and sometimes he plays holes for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
