Charles Barkley, on TNT last evening: "There's only two people I want to kill. Skip Bayless and Jay Mariotti. One thing I learned about the press is it's a really powerful tool. And your shtick can't be, you get on TV and be evil everyday. Because people believe what you say. And Skip Bayless is evil every single day, and Jay Mariotti is evil every single day."
