TNT aired a foot race between the guys on "Inside the NBA" on Thursday night, and it was worth the watch.

Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson took part in the "Chariot of Backfire," as it was dubbed. The race started with what Ernie Johnson believed was a false start and finished with a 0.01 second win by Chris Webber over Kenny Smith. 

Judging by what happened the last time Barkley was involved in a televised race, he didn't enter as the favorite. Check out when Barkley raced referee Dick Bavetta during the 2007 NBA All-Star Weekend, via NBA.com:
