Tyrese Maxey and Scottie Barnes had missed 6 wide-open layups at the shooting challenge in the 2022 All-Star Weekend.

Yet again, this season was full of action-packed drama that made it as entertaining as ever. With the 2021-2022 campaign reaching its final destination, NBA on TNT recently released the best Shaqtin’ A Fool moment from this past year.

Even though it was James Harden who won the infamous honor, Tyrese Maxey and Scottie Barnes gave us a good laugh with their awful shooting display at the 2022 All-Star Weekend.

Tyrese Maxey rightfully predicted that they would appear on Shaqtin’ A Fool after their horrid shooting

Immediately after their performance got over, Maxey knew they would be featured on Shaqtin’ A Fool. The Philly guard told the Raptors rookie:

“It was funny though, we made people laugh. Positive. We may have got some followers too. We’re going to be on Shaqtin’ A Fool tomorrow.”
