Former Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal will be joining the studio team on "NBA on TNT," the popular basketball show also featuring noted Heat hater Charles Barkley, according to unnamed reports in the Orlando Sentinel.
The reports cast an eerie glow around former Heat owner Micky Arison's reaction last month to Shaq's retirement: "I think he should take Charles Barkley's job." With any luck, he did.
It's not clear how TNT made room for ol' Kazaam, but with the NBA lockout still in full swing, who knows what they'll be talking about, or if they'll even be on the air. We can only hope Barkley doesn't start taking Shaq to the buffet with him; a 600-pound O'Neal probably wouldn't last long.
