But Barkley didn’t appreciate everyone’s help at that time. The former NBA star informed Patrick that he would not greet his former agent, Lance Luchnick, warmly should he see him agin. “Probably the only mistake I made was I didn’t sign with one of those three agents, I ended up signing with a scumbag agent and I don’t want to mention his name – Lance Luchnick – he stole all my money, he’s a scumbag, if I see him this day I’d blow his damn brains out. I hate that SOB.”

Former NBA great Charles Barkley joined Frank Isola and Brian Scalabrine on SiriusXM NBA Radio on Friday and offered his take on what he said he hopes is Bryant’s last season, period. For Barkley, it comes down to one simple thing — it sucks to watch great players who no longer have it. Those are guys you always want to see at their best, he says: “I hope he retires, because I don’t want to see — I probably played two years too long. I hate to see Patrick Ewing, great as he was, struggle — I don’t like seeing great players just out there, you know?” Barkley said. “Michael Jordan playing for the Wizards, that didn’t do anything for me. Kobe’s obviously not going to walk away from $30 million. This should be like a farewell tour, play 20, 25 minutes a night. The Lakers aren’t going to make the playoffs. Could he play some more? Yeah, of course. His best days are behind him. I hear these fools on TV, talking about, ‘Kobe’s going to get healthy.’ Old people don’t get healthy; they die. Old people don’t get healthy. Father Time is undefeated. … You can get in great shape in the summer, because you’re playing against air. Air doesn’t hit back.”

“I actually disagree with all the critics [against] the Knicks,’’ Barkley said. “I think the Knicks should be on national television this year. They actually got NBA players.’’ The Knicks are coming off a 17-65 season and have been downgraded on the national TV schedule from 23 games to 16. For those who don’t count NBA-TV, the Knicks, who had a modest free-agent haul and selected European project Kristaps Porzingis at No. 4, make seven appearances on ABC/ESPN/TNT.
