It seems as though legendary NBA player and popular analyst Charles Barkley is sticking to the career trajectory that he laid out a couple of years ago.
“I think about it every year,” Barkley told John Ourand of Sports Business Journal in 2019. “I’m not going to work forever. I can promise you that. My goal is to try to make it to 60. I turned 56 a couple of weeks ago. I think 60 is a nice round number.”
And if he's thought about it this year, it doesn't look like he's made any drastic changes to that plan. Barkley joined Audacy Sports affiliate 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C. to discuss retirement plans, "cancel culture," criticizing players and a whole lot more on Monday afternoon.
"...The PC people are out overboard right now," Barkley said. "I can't imagine you guys doing a show every day, how crazy it is for you. Like, it's gotten so out of hand right now, I couldn't imagine having to watch myself. You can't even have fun nowadays without these jacka**es trying to get you canceled and things like that. Especially you (Danny) being a comedian, but still just having fun talking about sports.
"Listen, I'm trying to hang on for another couple years 'til I'm 60, and then they can kiss my a**. I'm only working 'til 60. I've already told them that."
What keeps him going? The excitin
