Why does TNT continue to destroy the chemistry of the finest sports broadcast team in history by having Shaq on the broadcasts? Earnie, Kenny and Charles are flat out wonderful together. Shaq's incessant boorish comments and shameless self promotion only detract from the brilliance of the rest of the team. When he's on the analyst's panel I now just fast forward through it, as I can't watch his moronic bully act any longer. Tonight, for example, Shaq rudely challenged Barkley for saying Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Jabbar were among the top 5 NBA players of all time, and not including him (Shaq) on that list. As someone who has watched them all, from the very beginning of the Russell/Chamberlain rivalry, Shaq doesn't belong on that list--or anywhere even close to it.
PLEASE--GET RID OF SHAQ. Any of the other fellas who often sit in would be a vast improvement.
