In the words of Charles Barkley, himself, “Oh my God, that punch was turrble”. Charles looked to relive his fight with Shaquille O’Neal from 1999, but my how things have changed.
Chuck and Shaq threw down in 1999 when they were both super-athletes. Now, both guys are fat, rich, and have bad knees. So, when Kenny Smith is trying to demonstrate something on ‘Inside the NBA’ and Shaq gives him a shove, hilarity ensues.
