Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley keep demonstrating why they are two of the most entertaining NBA analysts out there. The duo just wrapped up another season full of laughs, heated moments and entertaining debates, and it seemed like Shaq wanted to go in a big fashion. 

On Thursday night, the Big Diesel shared a fun video of himself wrestling with Charles Barkley in a hallway. The 4x NBA champion was trying to body slam Barkley, who put up a good fight, although he almost succumbed to Shaq's attempts. 

It wasn't until somebody else came and split the little fight that things ended, with the TNT duo shaking hands and going about their business. It was a short but intense showdown, and many fans had something to say about it. 

Some claimed that Barkley was saved by the man who came in there and stopped everything, while others trolled the former players for being children in old men's bodies.

Whenever these two go at it, verbally or physically, every fan has a blast. There's a reason why these guys are so beloved around the league and this is another proof of that. It's great to see that they never miss a chance to have fun and entertain people around them. This time, Shaq tried to punish Chuck, but he put up a good defense. Perhaps next time, O'Neal will pull off one of his signature moves and take down Barkley.
