Charles Barkley went all in on Conan O’Brien when he appeared on his podcast and said Conan has dainty hands when compared to NBA players’.
Conan O’Brien is one of the most decorated comedians of this time, with people like Nikki Glaser and more looking up to ever since the 1990s. However, stepping into a room with Charles Barkley quite nearly makes anyone feel as though they’re merely the second funniest person in that room even someone of Conan’s stature could not be exempt from this.
Charles Barkley has delved into a whole other career following his actual career as a professional basketball player by dipping into his wit and charm. The ‘Round Mound of Rebound’ embraces any form of hilarity and somehow makes the joke even funnier than it originally was.
More a year and a half ago, Barkley appeared on Conan O’Brien’s ‘Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend’ podcast and what ensued was some of the most gut-wrenchingly amusing content that’s ever been put up on the internet.
Charles Barkley continuously took shots at Conan O’Brien on his own podcast.
Seems as though nearly a decade’s worth of back-and-forths with Shaquille O’Neal have trained Charles Barkley to get into a verbal tiff with anybody he comes across. Conan usually utilizes self-deprecating humor while Chuck is more of a ‘I will roast you in any way, shape, or form’ type guy. So, it was only natural for the Suns legend to go after Conan throughout the podcast.

He started off the podcast right away by hilariously crushing any dreams Conan had about joining the NBA, despite his 6’4, 200lb frame. He also roasted him for having ‘dainty hands’ and claimed they were even smaller while shaking his hands at the end of the pod.
Everything in between those two insults was him continually pushing forth the fact that Conan should thrive on an audio-only flatform considering his face is not being displayed on television.
Though it may seem as though Charles Barkley merely showed up to make fun of Conan for an hour straight, he did sprinkle in a ton of great advice for up-and-coming athletes and capping the episode off by profusely stating Conan O’Brien is a great person.
