Shaquille O'Neal managed to make Charles Barkley look like a sage last night during the Rockets-Blazers game. O'Neal kept bellowing "BBQ chicken alert!", several times, standing and increasing volume for emphasis, trumpeting Dwight Howard's newfound assertiveness as the key to a Rockets victory. Barkley calmly (Barkley the calm one ?!) disagreed, pointing out that Howard's demanding the ball was taking shots from the Rockets and interrupting their gameflow. Naturally, the Rockets collapse down the stretch.
