After the Cleveland Cavaliers’ comeback win over the Boston Celtics, the TNT NBA crew of Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson, and Kenny Smith were on hand to offer up some post-game insights. Ostensibly.
And thus ends one of the more perplexing NBA feuds, not with a verbal blowup or a throwing of the hands, but with the instigator being called off by his mommy.
Shaquille O’Neal and Warriors center JaVale McGee, who are perpetually beefing over McGee’s appearances on Shaqtin’ A Fool, spent the wee hours of the morning arguing on Twitter. This afternoon, the more prominent members of the Warriors came to McGee’s defense, while the team reportedly complained to Turner Sports…
Human lowlight reel JaVale McGee and Shaq have had beef for a while now. Shaq loves to make fun of the silly stuff McGee (who, it should also be said, is having a really good season with the Warriors) regularly does on the court. McGee, in contrast, hates it. Last night, the beef reached all new, multi-media heights.
Warriors center JaVale McGee and Shaquille O’Neal have a unique relationship, in that Shaq makes fun of McGee on TV, and McGee gets angry at him.
Before the start of tonight’s Bucks-Bulls game on TNT, the Inside The NBA crew reminisced about their years working with the late Craig Sager. Ernie Johnson was off tonight due to an illness in the family, but he produced a video tribute for Sager, after which Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, Shaq, and Johnson’s…
Instead of previewing the upcoming game between the Heat and the Bulls, the hosts of Inside The NBA instead spoke for a solid 10 minutes about the election of Donald Trump and how they felt a day removed from it. None of the panel supported Trump, but everyone urged their fellow disaffected citizens to get over…
This is Shareef O’Neal, Shaq’s big-as-hell son. He’s a high school sophomore, but he’s already 6-foot-9 and can dunk over his massive father. Look at this dang dunk:
You can’t swing a dead cat in Brooklyn without hitting an Arsenal-scarf-wearing, artisanal-coffee-in-a-mason-jar-sipping soccer fan, and you don’t even have to look too far these days to find Swansea City, Sunderland, and Fulham fans in the U.S.
To be fair to Shaq, I can’t really compose a coherent thought after 8:00 p.m., either.
For no particular reason, let’s take a moment to gawk at some of Shaquille O’Neal’s best highlights.
Shaquille O’Neal is disowning content posted on his personal blog and verified Facebook pages yesterday, claiming the company he contracted to pretend to be him online went rogue and that he is not and has never been a “9/11 truther.”
TNT host Shaquille O’Neal regularly delights audiences with his “Shaqtin’ A Fool” segment, but the Inside the NBA personality is probably due for a taste of his own medicine after revealing to the world this evening that he is a 9/11 truther.
Shaq has a habit of engaging in slapstick humor on Inside the NBA, so we can’t be sure that this isn’t a gag, but Shaq losing his shoe while falling on his face is pretty funny nonetheless. After four straight hours of watching playoff basketball, it’s nice to have a bit of levity.
There once was a time when TNT's Inside the NBA could be counted on to be the only sports studio show worth watching on a regular basis, but things have been trending downhill lately. Case in point: Last night's brain-dead discussion about basketball analytics, during which the collective ass-showing by those involved…
I somehow missed this Thursday night, but it's too funny to let pass by. That's Dennis Scott's son, Dennis III, socking Shaq in the face on the set of Inside the NBA. Scott and Shaq played together in Orlando for four seasons and I assume are friendly, but Dennis III hit Shaq a little bit harder than "jokingly,"…
Yeah, I don't know either.
There's no semblance of a barrier between professional athletes and rappers today, but that wasn't the case in 1994. Long before Ron Artest put out his own mixtape or Damian Lillard dominated #FourBarFridays, the NBA's biggest stars were only just beginning to tiptoe into the studio, with oft-disastrous but…
