VIDEO: Shaq and Charles Barkley trade more lighthearted insults

Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley are at it again…well, sorta.

The two big men of NBA on TNT exchanged some pretty personal insults on Tuesday, but before Thursday’s Game 5 between the Cavaliers and Celtics the two took a more playful approach with each other.

As TNT was running tweets before the game, one viewer wrote, “Let’s see if Shaq and Chuck can get along today.”

This of course set the two off.

“No we can’t,” Shaq said. “I’m telling you right now.”

“Just for the record, Shazaam sucked,” Barkley said, referring to Shaq’s 1996 movie, “Kazaam.”

“Give me some of those chicken wings so I can throw ‘em at Chuck,” Shaq responded.

Never a dull moment for the NBA on TNT crew.

Of course, that was referencing Tuesday’s exchange, when Barkley told Shaq, “I’m gonna throw one of these chicken wings at your fat a–.”

But this time Barkley stuck to hammering Shaq’s career in the entertainment industry.

“Kazaam sucked as a movie and you a bad rapper, too,” Barkley said.

“My favorite commercial is when you wore that dress,” Shaq said to some laughs before TNT cut away from a commercial.

If you don’t recall what Shaq was referring to, it was this Weight Watchers commercial:

Not a bad look for Sir Charles.
