While the off-season continues, the TNT crew are enjoying their own lengthy off. But Shaq can still be spotted in multiple events. Be it in the WNBA playoffs or multiple local events, the former Lakers’ center is pretty active in the off-season as well.

In these off-season appearances though, Shaq still has one trick upon the sleeve which will annoy Charles Barkley yet again. Recently Shaq was spotted sporting a T-shirt featuring himself and Chuck.

The shirt replicated the iconic knockout picture of Mohammad Ali knocking out Sonny Liston and mocking him. Unsurprisingly, Shaq was Ali and Charles was depicted as Liston. The t-shirt even featured the other two members of the TNT special in Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith as the commentators of the game.

This is certainly a hilarious jab that Shaq has taken on Chuck. Be it him mocking Barkley for being overweight or his lack of rings, O’Neal always finds a way to make fun of the former MVP.

But Chuck won’t be a silent spectator though.With the season starting in a few weeks, expect Barkley to take some massive shots at Shaq during the season opener. The duo might battle it out with constant jabs at each other, but they certainly respect each other. Who do you prefer as an analyst O’Neal or Barkley?
