Shaquille O’ Neal’s humility towards his accolades was met with some rib-tickling reactions from the crew of Inside the NBA.
It would not be wrong to say that there has never been a dominant force in the NBA like Shaq. The Hall of Famer had a decorated career.
Big Diesel played on various teams during his tenure in the NBA. It was his stint in the LA Lakers and Miami Heat that made him an all-time great. Shaq won his first 3 championships with the Lakers and his 4th title with the Miami Heat.
Shaq had achieved several great feats during his 19-year career in the NBA. The NBA superstar is a 4x NBA champion, 3x NBA Finals MVP, 2000 league MVP, 2x scoring champion, and the list goes on.
However, Shaq has never shied away from crediting his teammates for his success. The 15x NBA All-Star played with the likes of Penny Hardaway, Kobe Bryant, and Dwayne Wade.
During a recent episode of Inside the NBA, while talking about the importance of Khris Middleton’s contribution towards the success of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Shaq was quick enough to cite an example of how Kobe, Penny, and Dwayne Wade played a major role in his success.
Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’ Neal’s argument has Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson in splits
During a recent segment of Inside the NBA, while talking about Buck’s recent performance in the ECF, Shaq stated that though Giannis was the most dominant player on the Bucks roster, Middleton was the best player.
The 4x NBA champion added, by saying that how Giannis needed a Middleton during his free throw woes, Shaq needed a Kobe or D-Wade.
Charles Barkley was quick to respond to this statement. Barkley disagreed with the fact that Shaq was never the best player on his team. This was surprising since the two have always been on logger-heads in the past while discussing various issues.
The greatest Inside The NBA moment since Shaq joined in 2011.

Whether it is Shaq bringing up the topic of Chuck winning no championships in his career or Chuck accusing Shaq of riding on Kobe Bryant’s and Dwayne Wade’s coattails. The two legends never shy away from throwing shots at each other.
Charles defending Shaq was met with some hilarious reactions, from Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson, who had never seen the two argue in favor of each other.
Kenny trolled the two by stating how this argument between them brought tears to his eyes, which was followed by Johnson suggesting if they could put this part in their Inside the NBA documentary.
