Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are two of the funniest guys in the NBA world, even though they often get into heated altercations with each other and other celebrities and players.

The relationship between them is even more special, as they act like siblings who fight with each other and make up things right away, but the comments they made about one another sometimes cross the line. You’re not sure if they’re funny or extremely mean but they’re used to that now.

Well, Barkley recently made some hilarious yet kind of creepy comments about Shaq and his love for swimming with sharks. During an edition of ‘The Steam Room’ podcast, the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns legend revealed he’d love to see Shaq eaten by sharks, explaining how ironic that would be.

“You know he (Shaq) always talks about swimming with sharks. I’m not gonna lie and I’m not an evil person. I would love to see his fat ass get eaten by a shark, y’all know we be laughing behind closed doors. That would be such a Shaq thing to do, to get eaten by a shark.” 

This is not the first time Barkley makes these comments. Two years ago, during the famous ‘Shark Week’, O’Neal had an appearance and Chuck was hoping his coworker to get eaten by a shark.

“I was praying that the shark ate him, first and foremost,” he joked. “No, you know, first of all, I think anybody who’s got the courage to do that is courageous. I don’t want to hear ‘he’s in a cage’ or whatever because if something can go wrong. (…) You know and I hear people talking about it wasn’t that big of a shark. That’s cause they wasn’t in the water with the shark. So number one I thought it was hilarious and I’m glad he didn’t get hurt,” he told Sports Pulse in 2018.

Well, it looks like Chuck it’s doing it all for the laughs and nothing else. However, Shaq won’t be so happy if some shark bit him and even less if he gets eaten by the rulers of the ocean.
