Charles Barkley may be an NBA legend, but he’s about as smart as a bag of rocks.
He commented during Thursday night’s edition of the NBA on TNT that athletes should get preferential treatment for vaccines, especially the COVID vaccine, because they pay higher taxes.

Barkley’s co-hosts, especially Kenny Smith, immediately and vigorously disagreed with Barkley’s belief that the amount of money someone makes should determine their place in line for “life or death” treatments. Barkley defended his assertion by saying he meant “taxes,” not income. However, of course, the amount of taxes one pays are determined by one’s income.
So, in reality, Barkley is arguing that people who make more money should get “preferential treatment” on vaccines.
While Barkley’s idea probably comes as a shock to many, the fact is we do live in a world where the rich and powerful get “preferential treatment” when it comes to the coronavirus. As evidenced by any of the dozens of different accounts of elected officials – maskless – attending functions that they have banned for their constituents.
In reality, Barkley only said out loud what most people who pay “high taxes” actually believe....that they should get special treatment in society.
