I'm not sure if I'm feeling this as much as everyone else. I love Shaq, but at least with Barkley, he can say some smart things sometimes (even if it doesn't really sound that smart coming out :laugh2:). :shrug: I dunno.

Gambeezy
07-09-2011, 09:36 PM
Shaq is more knowledgeable about the game than Barkley. At least he's funny, witty, and smart. Barkley is just funny because he's an idiot. Should be great though.

This is great. I hate ESPN's NBA personalities outside of Breen, Magic and Stu(liked Jackson but he's gone now). But this is going to be fun to watch once the lockout is over.

i cant wait till the fight between barkley and shaq is brought up one day. its inevidable. it has too.

07-09-2011, 10:15 PM
I'm OK with it as long as it doesn't mess up the chemistry between Charles, EJ, and Kenny.

07-09-2011, 10:17 PM
i hope he doesnt do the Lakers like Warren Sapp does the Raiders. I would hate that but its a good move should be hilarious to watch

i cant wait to see what barkley does when shaq makes him look stupid but barkley realizes he cant just threaten to hit him or glare at him to make him agree.

I'm glad espn didn't get him...Shaq with Barkley is much better than Shaq with magic/stuart scott/ barry

Shaq and Barkley are going to be clowin all season lol....

Shaq and Chuck? Oh boy......:laugh2:

Stuckey#3
07-09-2011, 11:01 PM
It will be interesting to hear them argue about era's, GOAT, ect. Also Shaq has the potential to make Chuck look tame with some of the **** that comes out of his mouth. I don't even like Shaq... but this will be entertaining. Hopefully we get to see it this year.

07-09-2011, 11:02 PM
Not to mention you will have the world's most notorious Lebron hater and Kobe hater on the same stage. It should be good.

Shaq doesn't always make the best decisions (Kazaam, Steel to name two), but he couldn't have made a better choice as to what to do after retirement IMO. I don't think any of the analysts at ESPN would've brought out the most Shaq will have to offer to us like Chuck, Kenny, and EJ will be able to. Too bad we'll probably have to wait until NEXT fall to see these guys.

B'sCeltsPatsSox
07-10-2011, 12:16 AM
I think the only bad news about this is that I probably have to move closer to the T.V. when Chuck and Shaq get into an argument lol.

this is gonna be pure gold with barkley and shaq but we may not see chuck and shaq on TNT until 2012

What's all the excitement about? I think it'll take away from the show. Barkley was always unique because he always said the dumbest but boldest things. Essentially, he was the comic relief and EJ and Kenny always reigned him in.

Now we're gonna have 2 comic reliefs that occasionally say intelligent things?

Shaq and Chuck is like LeBron and Wade :) similar styles and I don't how it will work out at first, but it'll definitely be fun to watch.

shaq is a terrible broadcaster/analyst; he did a guest spot with the tnt crew a couple of years ago and didnt have an intelligent thing to say, he just made sound effects the entire time.

I think you guys are setting your expectations a bit too high, a lot that will transpire from this will be forced and therefore awkward for the most part.

Yep. That probably means bye bye to C-Webb during NBA telecasts...Unless they do some sort of rotation. He will still be needed for the NCAA Tourney, on NBA.TV and some other broadcasts though.

07-11-2011, 11:39 PM
Why hasn't this been reported anywhere else? It makes me think it is not true.

Shaq would have broke the news online himself, just as he did for his retirement.

I have allways hatted Barkley, I have allways hated all the crews, they never realy talk about anything of value, alot of it ends up being ****, and with shaq and Barkely together, we will never takl about actual basketball.
