You probably wouldn't want to get on The Rock's bad side - common knowledge at this point. Well, that is, until a picture of him standing next to two basketball stars hit the online world. Safe to say, the internet is full of surprises, and this one is gonna leave you in stitches.
He might be 6’5″, but according to his picture with Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal, you sure wouldn’t know any better. “Look how small they make you look,” guest host Anthony Anderson trolled the actor during his latest stint on Jimmy Kimmel. Which, well, fair point. Then again, does anyone not look like Kevin Hart next to two NBA giants? (No shade, Kev.)
He's 6'5! But Charles Barkley makes the Rock look small, and Shaq makes him look like a shrimp! pic.twitter.com/xjogU83L51— JustLizzy🖤🤍💜 (@LustJizzy) July 17, 2021
But perhaps we may have jumped the gun here. According to The Rock, there's actually a very good reason he looks the way that he does (above). "First of all, I didn’t have any shoes on," the actor joked. By shoes, he must have meant platform pumps, right?
Whatever shoes he must have forgotten that day, we'd love to know what he had to say about this one: "Well, explain this one here, Rock," Anderson hilariously trolled, as he brought out more forgotten footage during their interview - a snap of The Rock alongside Sun Mingming, a.k.a the tallest professional basketball player in the world. Just when you thought you'd seen it all...

Of course, though, NBA stars are truly a rare breed: "You see these dudes; they're like weekend warriors, and you're like, 'Oh, I could ball in the NBA,'" as The Rock explained of the common misconception. "You get around real players, and you recognize quickly just how big these guys are." While we have yet to come face to face with LeBron or Michael Jordan (unfortunately), we'll gladly take his word for it.
Until next time, stay tuned. We've got a feeling The
Rock Pebble has more tricks up his sleeve.
