"I can be bought. If they paid me enough, I'd work for the Klan."

"We better not be doing the Bulls this year. Man, they suck! Bunch of high school kids with $70 million contracts. Damn! I hate my mother for having me too soon."

"I remember sitting down with the Rockets and saying, 'Yeah. I'm going to retire.' They said, 'Well, we'll give you $9 million.' And I said, 'You got a pen on you?'"

"If you go out with a girl and they say she has a great personality, she's ugly. If they tell you a guy works hard, he can't play a lick. Same thing."

After the judge at a trial for throwing a Chicago bar patron out of a first-floor window asked if Barkley had any regrets, he answered, "Yeah, I regret we weren't on a higher floor."

I feel motivated already.
