TNT’s "Inside the NBA" crew has produced some memorable moments, from the Barkley vs. Bavetta race to the "Shirt Off" showdown between Sir Charles and Shaq.
Are you ready for Shaq vs. Jason Whitlock in a boxing ring?
O’Neal challenged FOXSports.com’s columnist to face him in the ring after Whitlock tweeted that the former NBA big man, now working as an in-studio analyst, "is opening the season out of shape, as usual."
"Right now, Chuck would win Shirt-Off II," Whitlock tweeted.
O’Neal, trading jokes with broadcast members Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson on the postgame show following the Lakers’ loss to Dallas, called out Whitlock and issued the challenge to meet him in the ring.
"Jason Whitlock, I tell you what: You can come down here and box me any time you want," he said.
“Jason Whitlock, I’ll use one hand, you use two, I’ll get on my knees! Anytime, anyplace. You don’t know who you’re talking to!” O’Neal added.
