Charles Barkley*Now for our segment of “What did Charles Say Today?” the sports announcer and NBA Hall of Famer opened his big mouth again to say something quite outrageous and wild. This time it was about his thoughts regarding basketball fans.

On the Jim Rome radio show, he politely told listeners that some fans need to be shot.

“Fans man. They love their team and their player. They don’t want to hear any criticisms,” he said before going down a much more morbid road. “They just want you to be 100 percent for their team period. 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 em.”

Oh but it didn’t stop there of course.

“No, I meant that Jim. 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 em.”

Remember, that goes both ways, Charles.
