The Toronto Raptors emerged with a massive victory Tuesday night to even the Eastern Conference Finals at two and no one was happier about it than Shaquille O’Neal and the ‘Inside the NBA’ crew.
After the Raptors crushed the Milwaukee Bucks 120-102, the NBA on TNT personalities couldn’t help but join the ecstatic fans outside of Scotiabank Arena in a rousing rendition of ‘O Canada’ with Ernie Johnson effectively serving as the conductor.

O’Neal singing his heart out will certainly further endear himself to Raptors fans everywhere, but let’s take a moment to single out Charles Barkley, who refused to participate.
Does he not know the words? Did he want to avoid further embarrassment? Who is to say, really, but passing off O’Neal, Johnson and Kenny Smith’s version as ‘bad karaoke’ seems pointed.
With that out of the way, one more time, please. Take it away, Shaq!
