Shaquille O’Neal Took Over As NBA Commentator During Heat-Bucks and Fans Loved It

Shaquille O’Neal stepped away from the TNT studio desk and put on the headset on Tuesday night, taking over color commentary duties during the clash between the Bucks and Heat

Alongside Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller, O’Neal was on the call for the In-Season Tournament game in Miami, and he provided fans with plenty of entertainment. 

His place on TNT’s Inside the NBA panel was temporarily filled by WNBA legend Candace Parker, much to the delight of Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley, who applauded her as the replacement for O’Neal.

NBA fans on social media were loving O’Neal’s foray into color commentary, as he provided some intriguing insight and had plenty of jokes throughout the game.
