SHAQ ATTACK: TNT's Charles Barkley appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show" last night and discussed the addition of Shaquille O’Neal to the "Inside the NBA" crew. Barkley said, “Me and Shaq are going to have so much fun together. … I think he's going to be great on television. We're excited to have him.” NBC's Jay Leno referenced a promo for the show featuring O'Neal and said, “It looked like he took a little shot at you.” Barkley: “I had seen that before. That’s the people who I work with at TNT taking a shot at me because I take a lot of shots at them at work. That's OK. I'll take that. Welcome, Shaq” (“The Tonight Show,” NBC, 12/20).
