Monday night was just your typical night of Inside the NBA and its shenanigans.
Following Game 1 of the Celtics-76ers second-round series on TNT, Inside the NBA did their “Gone Fishin'” segment for the Pacers. They really went all-out for this particular edition of Gone Fishin’, which included Shaquille O’Neal holding an actual catfish.
Shaq chased Charles Barkley around the set with the catfish, and even tossed the catfish in the direction of Barkley, but Barkley was able to avoid the catfish with Matrix-esque moves before hiding in the back of the studio.
Oh, and Shaq then poured beer into the catfish, one night after Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Taylor Lewan chugged beer out of a catfish at Sunday night’s Nashville Predators playoff game.
Here’s video of the chaos:

Shaq has an actual catfish and is trying to throw it at Charles. That’s why this show wins all the awards. pic.twitter.com/iRxUs7Pa1O
