Shaq and Barkley together would be a riot! I would tune in every time i get a chance. TNT should do this to boost their ratings even more. It would nice to see Barkley and Shaq go back and forth. It is already pretty fun watching Barkley, Smith, and Webber go at each other.

As for Shaq, he would be a great addition to Barkley and gang. I remember when he used to live/play in my hometown (Orlando). He used to see some pretty funny things. I think that would go well with the TNT format.


The source is in the title............NY POST

So clearly your view is probably in the minority....but whatever. Shaq is one of the more colorful personalities in NBA history, so I can't imagine anything but fireworks if Shaq was added to the TNT NBA team.
I agree and so do most of the people who watch NBA basketball on TNT.

Your entitled to your opinion. Most remotes have a mute button. Nobody is putting a gun to your head and makiing you watch or listen to something you don't want to.

I love the idea that someone said earlier about them adding Shaq as a locker-room reporter. The show would be perfect

That wouldn't work because he wouldn't be able to hide his jealousy during the interview
