Just remember that you heard it here first (unless you’ve been to USA Today…umm Today), but the month long feud between Charles Barkley and Dick Bavetta will come to a head during the All-Star Game festivities in Vegas next month. Barkley has been goading Bavetta for awhile saying that he could beat him in a full court race. Well the event is proposed to take place on February 17th the day before the street ball game takes place.
Barkley, on air, said Bavetta, 67, had “parted the Red Sea with Moses.” Barkley added Bavetta’s tombstone will read, “He keeled over while racing the Chuckster!” Details of the race aren’t final. Like, maybe, whether they should wear pro wrestling costumes.
Some of the highlights from Chuck…..
“I don’t care where you get a 67 year old from I’ll beat him”- CB
“I’d pay to see that”- Marv Albert
“Maybe cause you old and you old guys like to stick together”- CB
“First of all, if I talk to a 67-year-old man, he’s not gonna be able to hear me.”
“Dick is probably flustered…..when he was born this was black and white…..he had a stagecoach when he was little”
The early odds aren’t in yet, but I’m throwing up Dickie B. at 3-1. Any takers???
