MUST WATCH: Charles Barkley And Shaq Get Into The Shouting Match Of The Year [VIDEO]

NBA legends Charles Barkley and Shaq got heated Tuesday night about whether or not coaches should baby star players.

Actually, saying things got heated might be an understatement. It got extremely personal. Barkley was calling out Shaq for needing Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade to carry him to championships.

Naturally, Shaq didn’t just take that. He retorted with, “I’ve got three finals MVPs. Google me, Chuck. Google me.”

I’m so happy that we live in a world where Charles Barkley and Shaq can go at each other’s throats on live television. You’re an idiot if you don’t find this to be grade-A entertainment. How could you not?

I like Barkley a lot more than Shaq, but the former Lakers superstar is 100 percent correct. You can’t be babying your players. You have to draw a line in the sand, and let people know that the line won’t be crossed without consequences. You can’t have the athletes running the show. It will never work.

On a much more important note, I’d love to just have these two debate whatever the biggest story of the day in the world is. Imagine these two discussing Trump and North Korea. That’s the kind of content the world is eager for.
