Shaq Smashed Brent Barry's Guitar Because He Would Not Play "Jesse's Girl"

Wednesday April 16th, 2014

As the regular season draws to a close, things have started to take a weird turn on TNT's Inside the NBA. Last night, Shaq happened upon Brent Barry playing the acoustic guitar for some ladies backstage and became enraged that he was not playing a "classic" like Rick Springfield's "Jesse's Girl."

Be sure to stick around to the end for O'Neal's misremembered lyrics medley of other 80's hits.

And remember, if you see someone quietly playing acoustic guitar, be sure to follow Shaq's lead and stop them.
