Shaquille O'Neal

When there is Shaquille O’Neal around, there is bound to be some kind of hilarious activity going on. That is exactly what happened on Thursday night when Charles Barkley and Shaq engaged in some friendly banter on the set of “Inside the NBA”.

In a bizarre turn of events, the cast of the show was discussing the meaning and origin of the word “Nebulous”. The word was new for Shaq, Chuck, and Kenny Smith. Earnie Johnson, the host of the show, used it to describe the game between the Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks.

Amidst the conversation, Shaq hilariously challenged Barkley to spell the word for 5000$ on the spot. Chuck accepted the challenge, only to get it wrong in the final three letters of the word. This was some classic “Inside” banter that has become one of the signatures of the show.

The animosity between Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal during their playing days has now blossomed into a beautiful friendship. Their bond has stood the test of time as they both started to appear on the show. Charles Barkley has even admitted that appearing on the Inside show is one of the best decisions he ever made.

It is a show which match viewers watch eagerly before and after the game. Former players like Candace Parker, Dwayne Wade, Reggie Miller, and many others give special appearances on the show. They all discuss the happenings of the game and give their expert opinions on incidents.

The show also features hilarious segments like “Shaqtin’ A Fool” in order to introduce a comedic angle. Overall, it is a must-watch for the people who love the spectacle of the NBA.
