If Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal is Muhammad Ali, then Charles Barkley is Sonny Liston – at least according to Shaq.
Shaq was spotted watching the Las Vegas Aces game against Phoenix Mercury in Nevada on Thursday and, interestingly, her wardrobe of choice turned heads. After all, even off the pitch and outside the NBA on TNT Studio, he’s trolling Barkley.
Super Lakers was seen wearing a t-shirt with a retouched photo of the iconic Ali de Liston overthrow. Shaq was Ali in edited art, while Barkley was Liston lying on the canvas.

Now where can we get this shirt?
Shaquille O’Neal gives the final blow to his “sworn enemy”, with whom he has had a lot of heated and funny exchanges. The two often trade punches, O’Neal being known to always rub Chuck’s lack of rings.
How Chuck reacts to trolling remains to be seen, but he’s unlikely to let him slip. After all, he’s still as competitive as he ever was, even after his days as a player.
With weeks into the 2021-22 NBA season and pre-season ahead, fans won’t have to wait long to see the two legends start over. Hopefully, however, it’s Sir Charles who delivers hay to the former Lakers great man.
