Charles Barkley: This is the best team he’s ever had though. Even counting Shaquille O’ Neal.
Chris Webber: Whaaaat?
CW: Come on. (awkward pause.) Chuck…
CB: Hold on for a second. I think if they had him and Shaq, and the rest were role players. But this team with Gasol, and Odom, and Kobe I think those three are better than Kobe and Shaq.
CW: I’m walking out right now. Is it ok for me to walk out this set? I know I’m new to this job but I just.. can we just stop.. can I just walk off this set? (points at CB) This is one of the greatest basketball players that ever touched a basketball saying.. (talks to CB) Horry was on that team, same guy making big shots now. He was on that team in LA. Fisher was on that team.
CB: He’s on that team now.
CW: ..Shaq was a monster really dunkin’ and jumpin’!.. 5 Pau Gasols can’t mess with Shaq!
CB: I’m not saying that. I’m not saying..
(everyone goes nuts..)
