If Shaquille O’Neal were to fall into the woods, would he make a sound?
NBA on TNT analyst Kenny Smith decided to race his host to the show’s big board, but the cagey 57-year-old had a trick up his sleeve. He pushed Shaq into a nearby Christmas tree for the lead on Tuesday night.
“It was bad here!” Charles Barkley said watching the event from his seat on the set.
There were plenty of laughs for the “NBA on TNT” crew, and this stunt means more laughs — and Smith should keep his head turning.
“Good Kenny,” Shaq Barkley, 50, said after Ernie Johnson pulled the 7-foot-1 basketball Hall of Famer from under the tree. “Kenny, this means war.”
