The NBA on TNT crew normally knocks viral moments like this out of the park, and this instance was no different.
After the Clippers spoiled Chris Paul’s return to L.A. with a 113-102 homecourt drubbing, Paul & some of the Rockets found their way to the Clippers’ locker room through a hallway in the arena’s bowels that connects the home & away locker rooms in an attempt to exchange words or throw hands.
Ultimately nothing happened, but the LAPD was called to keep the peace.
Once Shaq & Charles Barkley heard the Clippers locker room was under attack by a group of Rockets & the police “had to” intervene, they couldn’t contain themselves and lost it on live TV with an interview with NBA reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude:
NBA is the 🐐 league! 😂😂😂 Made my 1st report for “Inside The NBA” w/ Charles, Kenny, Shaq & EJ after Rockets Clippers game & hilarity ensued. Sooooo… I guess this is my life now. 🤷♀️😂🏀 #SQUAD! @NBAonTNT #WhenShaqThrewThePapers 😂😂😂 #TheyAreSoSilly pic.twitter.com/IKwVbUJpX8

I think the funniest part of this is Ernie trying to maintain a professional environment when Barkley & Shaq have clearly lost it.
