“I’m sick of you, man. i’m sick of you You interrupted Ernie… can he finish his monologue?’ Barkley asked.
“I’m not taking my tweet down, I’m not taking my tweet down. I believe what I said,” he added to much laughter.

Sharpe caused a stir Tuesday after failing to show up for work Undisputedbefore returning the next day where he clashed with Bayless.
Bayless defiantly refused to delete a tweet questioning the NFL’s decision to postpone Monday’s Bills-Bengals game after Buffalo safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest on the field.
Bayless’ tweet came as Hamlin was resuscitated on the lawn of Paycor Stadium on Monday night
However, this came at the expense of Sharpe’s monologue, which he couldn’t get through without being interrupted by his interlocutor.
In mid-December, Barkley and O’Neal trolled another altercation between Sharpe and Bayless.
The charade began when O’Neal said to Barkley, “I’m going to hit you now”, during their halftime coverage.
Barkley played the role of NFL Hall of Famer Sharpe, putting his glasses on before taking them off and yelling, “insult me again.”
Bayless, often controversial, sparked fury with his tweet over Damar Hamlin’s condition
WARNING – GRAPHIC LANGUAGE IN THE SUBTITLES
O’Neal replied ‘Put your glasses back on Chuck’ while grinning – the same quote Bayless had used a day earlier. ‘That’s what you do! Every time you insult me!” Barkley said, laughing hysterically.
Sharpe took over his glasses during Monday’s debate show after getting angry at Bayless in an explosive discussion surrounding Tom Brady.
“This man is playing at a high level at 45 when you had to retire at 35,” Bayless said.
Sharpe angrily replied, “That’s what you do! Every time I question something, I understand it.”

SHARPE-BAYLESS ON-AIR BLOWUP
SHARP: There was a lot of speculation as to why I wasn’t on the air yesterday and I’m not going to engage in speculation, conjecture or innuendo, but I will say this: Watching this game on Monday night struck me as what happened to Damar Hamlin is, deeply something different.
As the fraternity of the NFL, when injuries occur — and we know injuries are part of the game — I’ve seen boys suffer from cruciate ligament tears and Achilles tendon tears — but I’ve never had to see anyone resuscitate and fight for their pain had to be life in the field so it felt a bit different to me because I remember seeing my brother [former Packers receiver Sterling Sharpe] temporarily paralyzed on the field and he was able to concentrate again.
Skip tweeted something, and while I disagreed with the tweet, hopefully Skip will delete it…
BAYLESS: time out I won’t take it down because I stand by what I tweeted.
SHARP: Skip, let me finish.
BAYLESS: no you go
SHARP: … I can’t even get through a monologue without you interrupting me.
SHARP: I just wanted to say, Skip, I didn’t want to get into a situation yesterday involving Damar Hamlin. We should be talking about him, not your tweet.
I wanted to do that. But you can’t even let me finish my opening monologue without you interrupting it.
BAYLESS: I got the impression that you wouldn’t address that because no one here had a problem with that tweet.
SHARP: Obviously the bosses wanted you to make a statement, so clearly…
BAYLESS: No, they do not have.
