TNT analyst and Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal has once again jokingly criticized fellow NBA legend and analyst Charles Barkley, this time with a little help from the Philadelphia center Eagles, Jason Kelce.
O’Neal and Kelce met in Las Vegas before Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
While sitting at a table that appeared to be filled with chicken tenders, burgers, and fries, O’Neal looked at a camera sitting across the table before grilling his TNT cast member.
‘Hey Charles, do you know what Jason and I have in common and you don’t?’ O’Neal asked as he looked directly into a camera sitting in front of him.
He then pointed to Kelce’s Super Bowl ring while laughing and sticking out his tongue, mocking Barkley for not winning any championships during his professional career.

Jason admitted that doing the New Heights podcast brought him and his brother Travis closer.
Barkley’s lack of championship gold has become a running joke among the cast of ‘Inside the NBA’ and O’Neal often never shies away from any and all opportunities to make a joke at Barkley’s expense.
Kelce was seen laughing across the table from O’Neal with the clip shared on his and his brother Travis’ ‘New Heights’ podcast account on X.
Kelce, 36, recently said that doing the podcast with his brother has helped him and Travis get closer, stating that they “haven’t been this connected since college.”
“It’s been fun doing it another year, talking to my brother,” Kelce said. “I haven’t been that connected to Travis in the last two years, since college.”
‘And that’s been one of the best things, probably the best, about the podcast. It forces us: since we are brothers, before we spent months alone without speaking to each other. “We would text him, we would send him a funny video, but to actually sit down and talk to him would be a long time.”
