Looks like things are getting a little messy between the stars of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and FS1’s “Indisputed.”
On Tuesday, Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley left their signature on-air moments full of playful banter. However, this time their back and forth seemed all too familiar to some people on social media.
It turns out that the couple relived a heated exchange between Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe that took place the day before on the episode of Undisputed.
Bayless and Sharp addressed him during a conversation about the greatness of Tom Brady, who Bayless said was a better player than Sharp. Sharpe accused Bayless of taking a personal shot at him, and he moved on.
On Tuesday night’s Inside the NBA , O’Neal played Bayless and Barkley looked like Sharpe.
“Disrespect me again, skip Bayless,” O’Neal said, as Barkley put on his glasses and then ripped them off, similar to Sharpe’s behavior in “Undisputed.”
“Insult me again,” Barkley yelled, while O’Neal taunted Bayless, “Get your glasses back, Chuck.”
After taunting Sharpe, Barkley couldn’t contain his laughter and yelled, “That’s what you’re doing! Every time!”
Bayless caught O’Neal and Barkley’s skit, tweeting on Tuesday: “Charles Barkley: Thank you for your faithful viewing of Undisputed.”
During Monday’s episode of “Undisputed,” Sharp pointed out that Bayless took a shot below the belt when he said Brady was still playing at a high level at 45, while Sharp said he had to stop at 35.
“That’s what you do,” Sharp said. “Every time I call something, I’m jealous. … I did what I did. You make me look like a fool. I’m in the hall of fame. “I have three Super Bowls.”
