WATCH: Saturday Night Live produces hilarious skit featuring depictions of Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley

Shaquille O'Neal-Charles Barkley-Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live had some fun with two former SEC basketball stars.

NBC’s famous comedy show produced a sketch this weekend that depicted TNT’s Inside the NBA, which features former LSU player Shaquille O’Neal and former Auburn player Charles Barkley as analysts. The routine in the clip below shows comedian Kevin Hart playing O’Neal with stilts — appropriate for O’Neal’s 7-foot-1 height — and actor Kenan Thompson playing Barkley.

Give the clip a glance and try not to smile. Well done, all.

The comment by Thompson to Hart as O’Neal being “like the letter ‘F’ came to life” is fantastic. Here’s guessing the real-life O’Neal and Barkley enjoyed watching this one.

You know you’ve made it big when you’re SNL big.
