Charles Barkley: Shaquille O’Neal told him he’s interested in Magic GM job
TNT analyst Charles Barkley joined the show to talk about the playoffs and more.
Dan asked Barkley if Shaquille O’Neal has told him he’s is interested in the Orlando GM job. “Yes,” Barkley said. “I do know he’s interested in the job and he’s going to interview for it.”
Barkley said O’Neal and Dwight Howard have had issues in the past, but that doesn’t mean Shaq can’t go to Orlando.
Barkley thinks Howard needs to make a decision and stay or go in Orlando. He’s sick of talking about it.
“They’re trying to do anything they can to keep Dwight there and get a buzz,” Barkley said. “They have to do something whether Dwight stays there or not. Bringing in Shaquille is an attention getter.”
Dan asked Charles if he’d rather have Kevin Durant or LeBron James’ future moving ahead. “LeBron James, “He’s going to be the best player for the next five to 10 years.”
Barkley weighed in on several other topics, including the Lakers’ trade options, the “Dirty Little Creek Walk” in San Antonio and more. On a side note, Barkley said that a grown man can’t use a “neck pillow.”
