Charles Barkley revealed on Thursday the funny nickname the TNT crew has for Shaq. Barkley joked that they call Shaq “Petty White,” which is a play on words and reference to famous actress Betty White. Shaq said he preferred the name “Richard Petty,” who is a famous former racecar driver. Both names refer to Shaq’s tendency to be petty about the way he criticizes and picks fights with players.

Kevin Durant on Charles Barkley: I don't know why they still ask for this idiot's opinion

Now, in a recent Instagram post, Durant was less reserved in his criticism of Barkley. BasketballNews.com’s Etan Thomas posted about Barkley’s recent comment that NBA players “deserve some preferential treatment” when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine because of how much they pay in taxes. “Yea, that’ll go over well Barkley smh,” Thomas wrote in the caption. In the comments, Durant responded: “I don’t know why they still ask for this idiot’s opinion.”
Justin Kubatko: The @Cleveland Cavaliers Andre Drummond has recorded his 43rd career game with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds, breaking a tie with Hakeem Olajuwon for the third-most such games since the ABA-NBA merger: 109 – Moses Malone. 51 – Dwight Howard. 43 – Drummond. 42 – Olajuwon. 41 – Charles Barkley.
About a week before the 1984 Olympics, Bob Knight rode shotgun in a Mustang convertible through the streets of Southern California. The United States men’s basketball coach had his feet up on the dashboard and the seat leaned back. Pete Newell was behind the wheel. Henry Iba sat scrunched in the back seat. Both former Team USA head coaches had been involved with the 1984 squad since the trials began three months earlier, in April. Newell was a longtime mentor of Knight, practically a father figure to the Indiana coach. Iba’s wife had died a year earlier, and Knight had invited him to the trials to serve as a consultant to the Olympic staff. It was the escape Iba needed.
Behind the Mustang, a bus transported Knight’s team and staff. The 12 players on board had emerged from perhaps the greatest collection of amateur talent the sport had seen. Among the 72 prospects invited to the Olympic trials in Bloomington, Ind., were 37 future first-round NBA Draft picks, 12 future NBA All-Stars and seven future Hall of Famers. The historical implications weren’t lost on those there. Midway through the trials, George Washington big man Michael Brown asked every player to sign a trials game program, a souvenir he would keep for decades.
