Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal Astound Steve Harvey on ‘Celebrity Family Feud’

On the June 17th episode of ABC’s “Celebrity Family Feud“, it was a battle between the crew of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” versus the all-stars from Major League Baseball and women’s softball.

When asked what a man would use to cover up a broken zipper at church, NBA legend Charles Barkley provided an interesting response that amused host Steve Harvey and briefly sent TNT’s Ernie Johnson over to the baseball team.

Later, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal prevented himself from provocatively answering a question about what a married woman would like her husband to give her.

After the NBA crew had won the front-end game, Harvey realized Barkley and O’Neal would be playing for the $25,000 Fast Money bonus round and it sent him into hysterics, saying “This about to be the worst game of Fast Money you’ve ever seen.”

When it was O’Neal’s turn to review his bonus round answers, Harvey had a difficult time putting his arm around the 7-foot-one-inch man.

Despite Harvey’s initial prediction, Barkley and O’Neal did combine to earn the necessary 200 points in Fast Money to win the grand prize for the Mustard Seed School.
