The only thing we can think of that could make the "Barkley at 50" special Comcast SportsNet will be airing next week better is if it was 2.5 hours longer. Okay, and maybe if that was a Yuengling instead of a Diet Coke in front of him. Seriously, Sir Charles sitting around telling old stories for all of us to enjoy and ripping on how bad his former teammates were? Instant DVR.
Here's some of the official info:
Comcast SportsNet celebrates Charles Barkley’s 50th birthday with an original special, “Barkley at 50,” airing on Wednesday, February 20 at 7 p.m.
Comcast SportsNet’s Neil Hartman is joined by Barkley, and his former coach and current CSN analyst, Jim Lynam, for this relaxed sit-down interview. The always outspoken Barkley reminisces about his life as he turns 50, his aspirations to return to the NBA, and shares some great stories about his former Sixers teammates and coaches including Lynam, who was the Sixers GM when he traded Barkley from Philadelphia in 1992. Lynam and Barkley talk candidly about that move.
Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
