View Full Version : Trade Proposal...Shaq for Jalen Rose....

12-25-2012, 05:56 PM
TNT will send Shaq to ESPN for Jalen Rose, Charles Barkley stays calling play by play games on location, so the inside the NBA new crew is E.J., Jalen, C. Webb and Kenny, possibly wins a chip and ESPN gets an even worse pre/half time show/commentary and is totally obnoxious and all have to fight each other to see who tries the hardest to be the funny and fall flat on their faces.

Atleast J.Rose has some sort of personality and sounds excited when you come back from commercials. Lawddddd.

Shaq and Magic try WAY too hard, they would be a "good, bad team".

I dont know why TNT has Webber in studio. He should be calling the games he is great at it. And Bring Chuck back in studio

Fair trade. The chemistry will be hurt though. Dont know if itll work out long term. The question is... Do the contracts match?

Shaq does suck pretty bad.

But Barkley is the man

Throw in a conditional 2nd round pick + Cash Considerations + A year's supply of Krispy Kreme Donuts and you got yourself a deal!

Jalen fits much better with the TNT crew because he doesn't have to attract attention to himself, he'd fit right in next to Kenny & Chuck doing their thing.

Shaq fits perfectly on a show with 3 horribly boring people like Wilbon, Magic, & Simmons who literally are the worst NBA pre or post game show I have ever seen.

Shaq and Magic alone would make the dumbest pre-game show crew in the history of sports.

12-25-2012, 08:45 PM
Barkley is my favorite, gotta love that slow mother ****er.

12-25-2012, 09:43 PM
who cares. barkley is the man!

12-25-2012, 10:39 PM
The only reason I put Charles on site for calling games is he says he wants to retire sometime soon and do something different, so therefore calling games in person would do that, and anyone who listens to C-Webbs radio show knows he is a very smart guy and can handle his own without tacky jokes. The only positive that Shaq brings is Shaqtin-a-fool which anyone could have came up with and could just be named "This Weeks Bloopers".

Just don't let Mitch talk himself into that trade conversation... Cause in the end, Shaq's Mansion, Rose's Wife, and 1/2 of TNT might see themselves covered in Purple and Gold.

they need to bring chuck back into the studio. he is the show. hes just too funny. having him an shaq there is just comical. although w/o barkley shaq wouldnt be **** on the show.

barkley makes the show. tnt would be stupid to change it. i geek everytime i watch tnt nba overtime

Does Shaq bring the Shaqting a Fool segment with him? I'd kinda miss that ;-)

I actually like Shaq on the TNT show despite him occasionally being annoying like when he attacks Chuck or says google me.

His chemistry has improved and he looks more comfortable.

Just bring back Gary Payton.


12-26-2012, 01:07 PM
Bring back GP!

Reggie Miller and Charles Barkley are my personal favorite announcers on TV when together. I even prefer them over my own Bulls broadcasters.

12-26-2012, 01:17 PM
Shaq, Magic and Wilbon would be the Triumvirate of Suck. I'd love for them to end up together in one place, just so I could easily avoid all 3 of them.

12-26-2012, 01:25 PM
why does Jalen Rose run everything now on the pregame and halftime shows for ESPN, hes awful at it. That should be Wilbon's job. and last night before the rockets-bulls game Jalen Rose said Rip Hamilton needs to guard James Harden closely and Rip has been out for the last month haha.

12-26-2012, 01:25 PM
Shaq really is terrible in this setting.

12-26-2012, 03:31 PM
Hope they keep it how it is....Please don't bring Jalen to where I actually enjoy to hear people talk about sports, guy sounds about as dumb as rocks

12-26-2012, 03:54 PM
I share the majority of sentiments here. The ESPN nba crew are really dull and boring. Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons sound monotone. There is no humor, no chemistry..just one big BLAH. On the other hand, I love watching the nba tnt crew with charles, kenny and ej. Shaq to me is useless there..If he left, i wouldn't miss him one bit. The show was just great the way it was and i still don't understand why Shaq was added. And Charles to me is star of that show. Actually all three men have great chemistry with each other..

C. Webb is the best basketball analyst IMO out of all these guys.
