On Thursday night, the Inside the NBA studio crew took some time to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year (February 10th) during Ernie Johnson's "Neat-O Stat of the Night" segment. EJ handed out toy animals to his crew mates to match the animals that represent the years in the Chinese calendar that Shaquille O'Neal, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley were born.
Some spontaneous ad-lib comedy was expected during the segment, but the most hilarious moment came unexpectedly when Barkley freaked out while examining the toy stuffed rabbit (at the 1:26 mark of the segment). Not sure what Chuck was thinking - maybe he thought it was real? Naturally, Barkley's embarrassing moment was replayed over and over for some major laughs.
