Shaq has no chill, man. That’s especially true whenever Charles Barkley is involved. During Sunday’s Inside the NBA show, Shaquille O’Neal went at Chuck once again, calling him out for dozing off during the first half of Game 1 between the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers.
It’s really not a big deal to sleep, but when you have to provide an analysis of the game you chose to sleep through than watch, then there’s going to be a problem there. The problem? Shaq exposing you on national television.

Barkley tried to make up an excuse for it by saying he was tired after shooting a commercial, but no one expected Shaq to buy that alibi.
Or maybe Barkley just prefers watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs?
As for the game, the Wizards did a pretty good job of of keeping step with the Sixers in the first half. In fact, Washington even had a one-point lead by the end of the second period. As usual, Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal led the charge for the Wizards, but Davis Bertans also step up, hitting multiple 3-pointers that helped Washington stay afloat.
Barkley can’t afford to sleep through the second half. For one, that would give Shaq more bullets. Plus, the game should further intensify, so Chuck will at least have that going for him.
Never change, Shaq and Chuck.
