NBAonTNT pays Charles Barkley $6 million a year to fight Shaquille O’Neal

In addition to Shaquille O'Neal, Barkley earns $6 million as a Turner Sports analyst on 'Inside the NBA'

The final season of Charles Barkley's NBA career was quite tumultuous

In 1997, he failed to reach the NBA Finals after a WCF loss to the Utah Jazz after joining the Houston Rockets to help win his first NBA championship

His final season was marred by a feud with his newest teammate, Scottie Pippen, and ended with them missing the playoffs

After 16 years in the NBA, Chuck retired from the game that same season and immediately became a basketball analyst

In 2000, he joined Turner Sports as an analyst alongside Ernie Johnson and Kenny 'The Jet' Smith

'Inside the NBA' became as prestigious as it is today because Charles Barkley got up to shenanigans and indulged in bits when he wasn't being honest

Chuck never earned more than $6,000,000 in a single season of his career except one
