Tyson breaks down the Barkley-Shaq fight
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
Ever since Shaquille O’Neal joined its panel, Inside the NBA has loved showing the 1999 clip of Charles Barkley throwing a ball at Shaq’s head and the scuffle that ensued. On Thursday night, no less an authority than Mike Tyson weighed in on the clip. The former heavyweight champion was not very complimentary of the pair’s fighting style. Then, for some apparent reason, he threatened to kick Barkley in a prominent part of his backside.
“Don’t fight if that’s not what you do” is good advice for anyone.
The Shaq-Barkley “beef” is not to be confused with the ongoing war of words between Shaq and FOXSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock. We respect you too much as readers to subject you to that.
