Charles Barkley Wishes He Could Shoot 20% of NBA Fans

by March 01, 2012

As usual, Charles Barkley had something completely insane to say during a sports radio interview. EOB has the details: “On Jim Rome’s radio show Wednesday, Barkley was talking about NBA fans and how some go a bit too far in their support. And he might’ve gone a bit too far himself. He was on for 35 straight minutes, so as you might imagine, give Barkley that long to talk and he’s bound to say something. ‘Fans man. They love their team and their player. They don’t want to hear any criticisms. They just want you to be 100 percent for their team period,’ Barkley said. ‘I think it’s only a small faction. I think 80 percent are great. Twenty percent, I wish you could take them out back and just shoot them.’ Rome jumped in there and says, ‘Well, maybe not shoot them, Chuck.’ But Barkley doubled down. ‘No, I meant that Jim,’ he said. Eighty percent of the fans are fantastic. But 20 percent of them are so mean-spirited and say the most nasty things to you, because they know you can’t grab them.'”
