Charles Barkley: 'If I Could Get Skip Bayless In A Room, They'd Need DNA To Find Out Who It Was'

Posted: Updated:

Not even the afterglow of being named "Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Analyst" for the second straight year at the Sports Emmys could dull Charles Barkley's animosity for Skip Bayless. During "Inside The NBA" on Tuesday, the basketball Hall of Famer took yet another shot at ESPN's most antagonistic debater.

"If I could get Skip Bayless in a room, they'd need DNA to find out who it was when I got through with him," Barkley quipped to his TNT colleagues after Bayless was mentioned.

The Barkley-Bayless feud -- or beef, if you will -- is nothing new. As chronicled by Deadspin, Barkley has previously described Bayless as "evil" and as "one of the two people [he'd] like to kill." During a December 2011 appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show," Barkley said, "I hate Skip Bayless more than any person in the world."

It does not seem that Barkley's view of Bayless has softened over time. Of course, Barkley is in good company when it comes to not caring for the Tebow-boosting "First Take" contrarian.
