The results are in from the “Chariots of Backfire” race between Shaq, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Chris Webber and Ernie Johnson on “NBA on TNT.” As predicted, it was an epic battle.
Kenny looked to have things locked up, but started celebrating too early. At the end, it was Webber crossing the tape and hoisting the trophy.
As Webber would say in his victory speech: “In life, when things get down and don’t look great, keep your mind straight and run through the tape.” Kenny refused to concede the victory. Hopefully this means there is a rematch on the horizon.
Next time, Kenny: run through the tape.
