The crew of ‘Inside the NBA’ always finds some fun things for the hosts to get into in between discussing all of the top basketball topics of the day. More often than not those involve Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley.
O’Neal and Barkley are always going back and forth every night, but this time they found a new way to settle the score in the form of arm wrestling. Shaq is obviously one of the biggest, strongest players to ever step foot in the league, and Barkley is no slouch either so it would seem to make for a decent matchup.
Not only did Shaq face off against Barkley, he would then take on two Arm Wrestling World Champions in Ian Carnegie and Devon Larratt, making for a great segment, which Inside the NBA shared onTwitter.
It was certainly entertaining to see Shaq demolish Barkley and even take out Carnegie, proving just how ridiculously strong he is.

However, it was a bit of a surprise to hear Shaq claim to be left-handed. Throughout his entire career he always shot right-handed so preferring the opposite off the court was certainly unexpected.
The arm strength of these champions is truly a sight to behold as once Shaq squared off with them on their right hand, he couldn’t move them. The idea of people just being able to walk off the street and compete with professionals should end after watching this video.
Shaq is a freak of nature for even coming close to competing with these champs, and the fact that he was able to beat down on Barkley one more time is worth the views by itself.
