“I’ve been really working out hard because apparently they’ve got to pick me up in a chair,” Barkley told Jimmy Kimmel on his talk show Tuesday night about the most harrowing feature of the traditional celebratory Jewish dance.

The former power forward, listed at six foot five (1.95 meters) in programs, was once known as the “Mound Round of Rebound” for his prowess on the boards and chunky physique.

“Listen, I need all Jewish people on deck, brother. Cause I can only get so skinny by Saturday, man,” Barkley said. “It’s like I’m a soldier, all hands on deck.”
