Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a big man, but even he looks small standing in between two legendary NBA big men.
An old photo of The Rock standing in between Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal has gone viral on social media this week.
Anthony Anderson served as the guest host for Jimmy Kimmel Live this week. The Rock made an appearance to promote his new movie, Jungle Cruise.
During The Rock’s appearance, Anderson brought up the old photo of his friend standing in between the two legendary NBA big men.
He's 6'5! But Charles Barkley makes the Rock look small, and Shaq makes him look like a shrimp! pic.twitter.com/xjogU83L51

The Rock did have one excuse for looking small: he didn’t have any shoes on.
“Listen, you know that’s the thing about basketball, right? You know this, Anthony, because you’re a fan. You see these dudes; they’re like weekend warriors and you’re like, ‘Oh I could ball in the NBA.’ You get around real players and you recognize quickly just how big these guys are and how impressive these guys are. First of all, I didn’t have any shoes on…” The Rock said.
The Rock has probably put on some muscle since that photo was taken, too.
But let that be a lesson for all: everyone looks small standing next to NBA big men.
