Last week, the cast of Entourage appeared on “Inside The NBA” to promote their upcoming movie. Jerry Ferrara, who plays Salvatore “Turtle” Assante, talked about his scene with UFC star Ronda Rousey with Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith.
After Ferrara finished saying how he has, “no delusions about how I would fair with Ronda Rousey in the Octagon,” Barkley and O’Neal chimed in on the subject. Charles went on to say if you’re going to get your butt kicked by a women it ain’t a bad one.”
Shaq then took it to another level by issuing a challenge to Rousey:
“Ronda Rousey, put the camera here, I can last 45 seconds with Ronda Rousey. Set it up!”
Rousey was recently spotted at LAX airport by TMZ Sports and was asked about Shaq’s comments. Rousey had a classic and fairly logical response:
With Shaq at 7’1″ and more than twice Rousey’s weight (135) at 325 pounds (generously low estimate), the four-time NBA champion would definitely last more than 45 seconds. Lasting much longer than that against Rousey is up for debate.[divide]
