Michael Garcia - June 6, 2012
If you've been watching TNT's Inside the NBA during the playoffs, then you've seen that they've been replaying the 1999 'fight' between Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley. I say 'fight' because it was more of a minor skirmish, where Charles threw the ball off Shaq's head, then Shaq missed with a left jab then they fell to the ground where Barkley softly put his hand against Shaq's head like a fake punch and then they wrestled.
Last night, a local Oklahoma City business sent over a piñata made to look like Barkley. Barkley has been playfully needling the OKC locals, and they've been having fun back with him. Well, once the candy filled piñata made its way to the set, Shaq finally avenged the fight by mercilessly destroying the mini-Chuck.
The best part is Charles' incredulous look during the entire display as if he doesn't know what to say, as Shaq punches and bites the poor creation into oblivion. Now this is some must-see-TV.
