Charles Barkley Says Peter Vecsey, Skip Bayless, and Phil Mushnick Are "Scumbags"

Charles Barkley did two segments on the Dan Patrick Show this morning. When he was asked about Kevin Durant’s new beef with the media, Barkley started talking about the “clowns on the internet.” Then he went on a tangent about how most guys in the media are good guys at heart, but said that there are some “scumbags” like Peter VecseySkip Bayless, and Phil Mushnick. Vecsey’s feud with Barkley dates way back, and Phil Mushnick was bashing Barkley’s ‘role model’ ad in the early 90’s. As for Bayless, Barkley has previously called him a “punk-ass” hater, and opined that the First Taker has “surpassed Vecsey as the biggest jackass in the history of journalism.”

After talking about a couple media members that he does actually like, Barkley asked Dan Patrickwhen he was gonna fight Colin Cowherd. Patrick pressed Barkley, who tried to punt on the topic, about who would win. “I don’t think either one of y’all has ever been in a real fight, to be honest with you,” Barkley said. “Well let me rephrase that. I don’t think either one of y’all have ever been in a fight that y’all won.”
