An NBA legend — and one of golf’s most unconventional media personalities — is open to joining LIV Golf, the sport’s most controversial competition.
No terms have been reported yet, but Barkley recently joked on the “Pat McAfee Show” that he would “kill a relative” for $200 million.
While Barkley has been a staple of TNT’s NBA studio programming for over two decades, he rose to fame in the golf community when videos of his erratic swing went viral on social media.
Since then, he has been used as an analyst for Turner Sports’ “The Match” — and even won the third edition.
Sir Charles and teammate (and LIV golfer) Phil Mickelson defeated Stephen Curry and Peyton Manning.
Barkley’s contract with Turner expires after the 2023-24 NBA season, and he has hinted that he will retire from broadcasting at that point.
“I don’t want to die on TV. I want to die on the golf course or somewhere fishing,” he said.
A move to LIV wouldn’t mean retirement — but it would get Barkley out on the course.
