Name Your Price: Charles Barkley told Pat McAfee he would kill a relative member for $200 million
Charles Barkley joined the Pat McAfee last Friday and talked about the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Tour and the never ending news regarding players leaving the PGA Tour for incredible amounts of money to play in the new league.
Barkley got brutally honest about what he would do to secure a $200 million pay day to defect from the PGA Tour and join the LIV Golf League.
Charles Barkley on what he would do for $200 million from LIV Golf
“Hey, I’m serious….Phil Mickelson got $200 million and Dustin and Justin got $150 million. Hey, for $150 million. I’ll kill a relative, even one I like,”
The bar has now been set. Barkley would kill a relative, even one that he likes, for a smooth $150 million.
Honestly, I think that price is right around what it should be to kill a relative. To my family members that will inevitably read this blog post and say “what the hell” I think it’s important for them to realize the following:
You’re selfish if you won’t die for your family to take home $150 million. I would do it for you. After the media coverage and other promotions that come with it, you would make way more than $150 million. You would be a family legend and instantly set the rest of us up for success for years to come.
Think about the family lineage and take one for the team.
Of course, I’m writing this as a complete joke so spare me the anger.
Side Note: This story came across my desk at a time where I have just been suspended from Twitter for telling someone’s burner account (Harrison Grimm) to “kill themselves”. To be clear, these two things are unrelated. I just wanted Harrison to do it himself and leave me out of it.
In this post, we’re talking big money.
I guess while I’m currently suspended from Twitter, I should be clear that I do not want Harrison Grimm to kill himself. That should be obvious. I’m not a monster.
All life is valuable. Even the lives of people like Harrison who block you on social media, talk shit about you, then create burners and harass you throughout the day. Grimm is a pathetic loser and a talentless hack that thinks he is some big shot because he writes an article a month for the SB Nation website Liberty Ballers. He’s the laughing stock of the internet and no one likes or respects him but it should go without saying that I certainly don’t want him to inflict self-harm.
Anyways, I would do some pretty crazy things for $200 million. The money is already coming from the Saudi Arabian government and is basically blood money already so me adding to the horror is hardly an issue. As the old saying goes, “once you take a dollar from the mob, you just can’t walk away if you have second thoughts. The mob now owns you and your family, blood will be shed, and people will die.”
I don’t even think that’s a saying but it definitely is now.
Personally, I’m not a killer. I don’t even like watching skateboarding shows where people fall and break bones, let alone seeing blood get shed so I really don’t think killing is in the cards for me. I’m also scared of heights and spiders. So there. Now you know everything.
In all seriousness, LIV Golf and the amounts of money they are dishing out to players to defect from the PGA Tour is absolutely insane. I’m not sure if I would be able to turn down $200 million in general just because it came directly from the Saudi Arabian government. I do however, just wish players that choose to do so would be honest about it and say that’s the reason they are leaving the PGA Tour. I think they would be surprised at the amount of people that understood that simple reasoning and what it could do for someones family for generations to come.
As for Charles Barkley, he continues to remain a national treasure and the “kill a relative for $200 million” is a hilarious joke on the entire situation that I have used several times even before I heard Chuck talking to Pat McAfee.
How much money would be too much for you to turn down? Let me know in the comments below. It can be related or unrelated to killing your family member. Whatever you are comfortable with dishing out on the internet.
