Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley are national treasures, and we must protect them at all costs.
When it comes to the media, and sports media in particular, it’s hard to find an analyst that isn’t afraid to speak their mind, in fear of repercussions.
But for Shaq and Sir Charles?
Those two say whatever comes off the top of their heads, and that’s why we continue to tune in.
And today, they were at it once again after Barkley accidentally said something hilarious.
Barkley was discussing the Grizzlies and Lakers game last night during Inside the NBA, and he accidentally made this comment:
“I’m kind of juggling two balls right here cause I’m real proud of what the Grizzlies did, that made me proud of being a basketball player.
Hey just let’s go compete and see what happens, then you got the Lakers who went out there and dogged it, who went through the motions, shout out to the Grizzlies for competing their behind off.”
Yeah, it was the “juggling two balls” part.
Needless to say, Shaq caught onto the slip, and couldn’t stop laughing his a** off. Seriously, he had to put his face in his hand as he attempted to restrain himself.
As soon as Barkley made the comment, Shaq hilariously responded:
“Oh, is that what you doing?”
Never change, Shaq and Sir Charles, never change.
