On ‘SNL,’ Charles Barkley’s Postgame Translator App helps Mike Shanahan, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Bill Belichick, Rex Ryan

The Charles Barkely Postgame Translator App?

Yes, please..

So far, though, it’s just a skit on “Saturday Night Live,” with Sir Charles in his third stint as host. The helpful app would explain, among other things, why Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan is so very red and succinctly translate Kobe Bryant: “I ain’t passing that ball today.”

Barkley’s best line? It came as he talked about his weight loss in the monologue. “Some of you might be saying, ‘Charles, isn’t Weight Watchers for ladies? But I tell them, shut up, Michael Jordan.”
