Charles Barkley and Shaq are no strangers to going at it on Inside the NBA, but things went especially off the rails during an exchange over Raptor head coach Dwayne Casey’s decision to bench DeMar Derozen during the fourth quarter of Game 4 against the Cavs.
Barkley argued the Casey needs to repair the relationship with Derozen because he’s the team’s best player. Shaq contended that coaches don’t need to baby star players. That’s when the argument devolved into a shout fest with Barkley accusing Shaq of getting “carried up and down the court” by Kobe Bryant and D-Wade. Shaq rebutted by pointing out that he has three Finals MVP’s and Barkley has zero rings.
And so it continues…
