Shaquille O’Neal gets Milwaukee fans to chant ‘Barkley sucks’
The hosts of NBA on TNT was at Milwaukee earlier tonight for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bucks and the Toronto Raptors. Shaquille O’Neal was there to hype the crowd by leading the “Milwaukee!” chants. But a few seconds later, they were already shouting “Barkley sucks!”

Of course, there was nothing personal about it. It was just another one of those segments where Shaq makes fun of his co-hosts. The three-time NBA champion loves to joke around with Charles Barkley, which is one of the main reasons why fans love to watch the pre-game, halftime, and post-game shows on NBA on TNT.
Shaquille O’Neal and Barkley were involved in multiple on-court altercations during their playing careers, but over the years, they became good friends, especially since they started working together as NBA analysts.
But make no mistake about it. Even though both guys are pretty candid, they are also excellent broadcasters. They usually make good points whenever pressing topics about the NBA are being discussed. Shaq and Sir Charles are using their experience as former NBA players to back their arguments up.
Sometimes, things get heated, especially when the conversations are about winning championships (Barkley didn’t win a title in his career), but often times, it’s all fun and games.
These two will make you laugh for the rest of the playoffs; just like what they’ve been doing for several years now.
For now, Shaquille O’Neal is getting the last laugh.
