Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are always clowning on Kenny Smith during TNT’s NBA coverage. He’s an easy target: the Jet wasn’t a Hall of Fame player and he’s a smack-talking little guard. Smith is like the kid brother on set, so when Chris Webber mocked Smith’s memorable opening run to “Kenny’s Pictures,” the reaction was predictable. Read More »

Shaq & Chris Andersen Sing A Birdman Song Together With Kenny Smith Beatboxing

Chris Andersen

In Miami’s crazy Game 1 win last night, Chris Andersen must’ve been the unsung hero. He went for 16 points and didn’t miss a shot from the floor, hanging all over the rim whenever the Pacers forgot about him. Afterward, he was invited up to the TNT set and got involved in a funny interview with the guys. The best part about this whole segment is you know Birdman was PISSED when they said he had to wear the headphones and screw up his immaculate mohawk. Read More »

Somehow during that sequence, Shaq’s mic got ripped off, causing them to have to stop the show again.

Mess. Watch it here: Read More »
