Charles Barclay’s fear of snakes is revealed through his guarantee button.
On TNT’s “Inside the NBA” Wednesday night, the Hall of Famer, joined by hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Shaq, discussed game two of the Suns-Nuggets Western Conference semifinals.
After Barclay predicted Denver would win in Game 2 (the Nuggets would eventually lose, 123-98), he pressed his guarantee button—as he does with all game predictions, which usually results in a color light show and, more recently, some wild game. Event.
When the button is clicked, circus members invade Studio J, and a woman carrying a huge snake appears.
Barclay put his eyes on the yellow snake and immediately withdrew from his seat.
Therefore, the hosts of “NBA on TNT” enjoyed his fright.
Shaq grabbed Barclay’s waist from behind so he couldn’t escape and asked for the snake to come close.
“Face your fears, Chuck,” Chuck said with a laugh.
Since the Lakers legend was petting a python, Barkley didn’t want any part of it.
“You can’t play with snakes,” he later added during the show.
