Shaq's hilarious breakdown of his strategy to outwrestle Chuck and Kenny

Charles-Barkley-Kenny-Smith-Charles-Barkley

There's no denying that Shaquille O'Neal is the most dominant player in the history of the NBA. There were only two ways to contain him during his prime: foul him or send all five guys to smother him. But, these antics never really worked. Shaq's four championship rings, including a three-peat with the Los Angeles Lakers, are good proof of this. 

Several years removed from professional ball, O'Neal still believes you need to throw a couple of guys at him to try to contain him. In an interview on The Dan Patrick Show, O'Neal was asked if he could take on his Inside the NBA co-hosts all at the same time. The big man did not hesitate with his response.

"Kenny's not going to do anything… Ernie's (inaudible). And so it's me and Chuck. I'm gonna break Chuck's neck. First move."

Laugh as loudly as you can, but O'Neal may be capable of asserting his physical prowess over all his three co-hosts with ease. To recall, O'Neal has appeared several times in the WWE. The most prominent one was his participation in the 3rd annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal in WrestleMania 32. With the help of the Big Show, O'Neal choke-slammed the Big Red Machine, Kane himself. When the dust settled, Shaq stood his ground against Big Show. 

O'Neil was not exaggerating when he said he'd do some serious harm to Charles Barkley. The two had an infamous altercation in 1999. Tensions flared, punches were thrown, the two ended up on the floor, and players of both teams had to step in. After the fight, both got a call from their mothers, who made them apologize to each other. You can check it out here, in our "Craziest fights in NBA history - Vol.1" mix.

It would be interesting to see how a Shaq vs. Kenny-Ernie-Chuck match would go down. Perhaps Shaq is correct in assuming that Kenny and Ernie would be mere pests that could be shooed away. However, Chuck is a different type of beast. Apart from the Big Show, Chuck may just be the only guy who can stand toe-to-toe with Shaq.
