A few of the funniest stuff on Contained in the NBA occurs when the fellows are simply making an attempt to get to the top of the present to allow them to go dwelling, as it’s previous 1 a.m. on the east coast. We acquired the most recent instance of that on the early hours of Wednesday morning when Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal noticed Boston Celtics guard Derrick White’s hairline and did their factor, going so far as to check White to Stephen A. Smith.
Earlier within the day’s NBA slate, the Celtics beat the Atlanta Hawks, 119-106, largely to the brilliance of White. Whereas filling in for Robert Williams within the beginning lineup, White had 26 factors, seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and a steal, which led to him speaking to the media after the sport. The fellows on the desk noticed that clip, which … properly, you’ve most likely seen what occurs when the Inside crew (notably Shaq and Chuck) discover one thing humorous, which led to the 2 dudes on the ends of the desk riffing for a strong two minutes whereas they had been cracking up.
Chuck joyously saying “rattling, Stephen A, he play for the Celtics!” is the excessive level, for me. However apparently, this didn’t sit properly with Smith, who Barkley stated texted him over the phase. Smith then took the Twitter and reacted to the entire thing, promising that he’d get some revenge on the 2 Corridor of Fame inductees.

Only a hunch, however that is going to return up on First Take on Wednesday morning.
