Watch Shaq Get Pranked With a Smoothie Containing Lotion and Ranch

The uproarious hijinks that go on during any episode of Inside The NBA are a part of the special recipe that’s made the Hall of Fame show so legendary and beloved. A main culprit in said hijinks is Shaquille O’Neal, usually on the receiving end of a prank or mishap.

The Big Fella played the hilarious victim again, after co-host Kenny Smith became fed up of Shaq making fun of his healthy eating habits and chose to exact revenge. How? By way of a nasty smoothie he concocted, made up of random ingredients like Metamucil fiber supplement, Aveeno lotion and ranch dressing.

The segment starts with Shaq taking a cautious sip of said smoothie, followed by showing surprising approval for how it tasted. “This is nice,” he admitted. “I taste cranberry and pineapple.”

Kenny then went straight for the big reveal, unveiling the list of ingredients that went into it in a separate video clip recorded earlier in the day, before blending it all together, ready to ruin The Big Diesel’s day.

The thoroughly unamused look on Shaq’s face afterwards, his gagging reactions and Kenny ducking behind Charles Barkley made for another side-splitting moment by the Inside The NBA crew.

Charles Barkley Legitimately Thinks Vegetarians Don’t Exist, Here’s His Explanation

It was a crazy night on TNT’s Inside The NBA, Thursday, as Shaquille O’Neal damn near burned his face off with the One Chip Challenge, and Charles Barkley adamantly claimed that vegetarians do not exist.

Yeah, I know, you’re feeling a bit perplexed by that statement, but he did not shy away from an explanation, saying, “Vegetarians, that’s not a thing. Nobody doesn’t like meat. Just because they say it, doesn’t make it true.”

Um, no, Chuck. That’s literally a vegetarian—someone who doesn’t like meat.

This might be more ridiculous than flat Earth theories that circled the NBA last year, and the worst part is that Barkley seemed dead serious. He casually made the statement, and tried to continue with his basketball analysis, like if he didn’t just say something that was bat-sh*t crazy.

Co-host Ernie Johnson didn’t let it die, though, circling back and asking Barkley, “You don’t think there are actually vegetarians?” and Sir Charles didn’t stutter, repeating, “There’s no such thing as a vegetarian, nobody doesn’t like meat, Ernie.”

Well, OK then. I can only imagine the conversation he’s going to have with PETA after they come after him and protest the hell out of the TNT studio.
