    RUSH: Last Thursday night TNT Inside the NBA, they’re talking about the impact of COVID-19, the pandemic, on the NBA season. And here’s what Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith had to say about it.

    BARKLEY: Three hundred million shots. Give a thousand to some NBA players, NFL players, hockey players. Listen, as much taxes as these players paid — let me repeat that — as much taxes as these players paid, they deserve some preferential treatment.

    SMITH: For life and death?

    BARKLEY: Yes.

    SMITH: The amount of money you make doesn’t —

    BARKLEY: No, no. I said taxes.

    SMITH: The amount of money you make —

    BARKLEY: I didn’t say the amount of money you make.

    SMITH: But that’s on taxes.

    BARKLEY: No, no, no. I’m saying the amount of taxes these guys pay.

    SMITH: We can’t go there. I don’t think you could go there.

    RUSH: You can’t go there but Chuck went there, Kenny. Chuck went there. Chuck said that these athletes are paying so much in taxes, they need to be given the vaccine first, that they are deserving of it, they are deserving of preferential treatment ’cause of the taxes they pay. Unbelievable.
