The guys at ‘Inside the NBA’ have always been known to be funny dudes, and when joined on the set by rapper Nicki Manaj, the crew thought it’d be fun to do a little rap cypher.

What can we say — the guys are hilarious on the air, and are just as hilarious in rhyme and on a beat. In particular, Shaquille O’Neal has a sick flow — indeed very Biggy Smalls esque.

Here’s a small sample of what the cypher had to offer:

“Nicki Manaj, will you marry me (Manaj: no)

Oh, she said no, messing up the flow”

– hidden marriage proposal by Shaquille O’Neal.

By the way, who else wanted to see Charles Barkely in on this?
