Shaq and Kenny Smith Had Too Much Fun Roasting Charles Barkley Over His Cookie Challenge Fail

The Inside the NBA crew decorated Christmas cookies on set Monday night, and the results were exactly as hilarious as you might expect.

Charles Barkley’s cookie got most of the criticism, with Kenny Smith and the rest of the crew in hysterics as Barkley revealed his failed decorations. Barkley left most of his giant cookie empty, decorating it only with a small Christmas tree made from what appear to be pretzels, icing and candy.

“That’s a Charlie Brown Christmas tree!” Ernie Johnson remarked, as Shaquille O’Neal piled on to call it “terrible” and “awful.”

Here’s the full hilarious video:

Shaq’s cookie wasn’t much better. He packed his tree with sprinkles, which backfired when Johnson made him pick up the cookie and show it to the camera. The sprinkles naturally fell to the floor, leaving O’Neal with an incredibly lame looking offering that brought on plenty more laughter from the crew.

It was the type of content that makes Inside the NBA unlike anything else on television, and fans predictably loved it.
