“I didn’t have Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant carrying me up and down the court."
Things got heated on the set of Inside the NBA last night during a debate about Dwane Casey's decision to sit DeMar DeRozan in the fourth quarter of Toronto's Game 3 loss to Cleveland.
Shaq and Charles Barkley disagreed on whether it was the right choice for Casey to bench DeRozan, with Barkley stressing the need for Casey to repair his relationship with the Raptors' All-Star. Shaq wouldn't let Barkley plead his case and before long the two were trading jabs about their respective playing careers and championship rings, or lack thereof.
“Me and Pat Riley never saw eye-to-eye and what happened,” Shaq said. “You don’t know what you’re talking about when it comes to championships. Stop babying these players, you got babied and that’s why you ain’t win.”
“I didn’t have Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant carrying me up and down the court,” Barkley responded.
It's not the first time that Shaq has referenced his championship rings during an argument with Barkley, nor is it the first time Chuck has fired back by saying D-Wade and Kobe carried him. That said, it just never gets old.
