Video: Shaq Names Five Old-School NBA Players He'd Want to Fight

During an appearance on Inside MMA on HDNet, new TNT announcer Shaquille O’Neal was asked who he’d liked to fight if given a chance. Instead of naming five current players, O’Neal went old school and named former players Charles Oakley, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Xavier McDaniel and…Danny Ainge?

He notes that Ainge almost bit off Tree Rollins‘ finger during a fight, so Ainge has a little tenacity to him.

Vote: The Mt. Rushmore of Awful Sports Announcers

ESPN replaced longtime Sunday Night baseball announcer Joe Morgan before this season, creating a large hole in the lives of those listeners who enjoy seeing their blood pressure rise when an old school baseball guy rails against the utilization of sabermetrics. Morgan, whose backwards attitude towards the Moneyball era inspired the creation of the popular and relatively short-lived baseball blog Fire Joe Morgan, was among the four faces on Awful Announcing’s Mount Rushmore of, well, awful announcers. With his removal from ESPN, however, AA has decided to remove him from its monument, too, and will replace him according to readers’ votes. Yes, AA is going to use a 32-person tournament of head-to-head match-ups featuring the likes dislikes of Woody Paige, Skip Bayless, Rick Reilly and Hawk Harrelson. Go here to vote.

The winner will join Pam Ward, Dick Vitale and Tim McCarver.
