Kenny Smith describes Shack’s rough start in “Inside the NBA”

1 IN Inside the NBA The show we see today with Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neill is a well-oiled machine that never fails to entertain.

However, this does not mean that there were no bumps in the road.

In the recent appearance of All the smoke podcast, Kenny Smith shared some amazing stories about Shaq, who joined the cast in 2011 and what those early days were like when Diesel had to mingle with an already established crew.

“Shaq was coming and it was Shaq,” Smith said. “Shaq is a movie. 10 people enter. He set up a hookah salon in the studio and they allowed him to do so. He said, “I have to get my hookah.” So he has a hookah lounge outside and they put a TV outside the studio. We have a green room. Like, yo, me and Chuck in the green room. We have been doing this for 15 years together. This guy will come in, build him a hookah salon? For example, what the hell was going on?
