Charles Barkley knew it was coming.

During Tuesday night's edition of Inside the NBA, it was announced that Chuck won a 2017 Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Analyst.

So, when Kenny "The Jet" Smith took out a couple of champagne bottles, the 54-year-old Barkley braced himself.

Smith gave one to his co-star and poured another all over him. Shaquille O’Neal joined in, curiously slapping Barkley on top of the head as The Jet emptied the bottle.

It was Chuck's second time winning the award.

"You never won a championship, but you won some Emmys, brother!" Smith teased.
