Kai Cenat appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast this week to address the former NFL tight end’s comments that he was ‘three feet tall’ while he participated in the NBA‘s All-Star weekend. 

Cenat played in the celebrity game on Friday night and was largely ignored by his teammates and Sharpe, his head coach. On Saturday night, Celtics guard Jaylen Brown jumped over a seated Cenat during the slam dunk contest.  

Cenat’s height is 5-foot-3, with an average NBA player towering over the popular streamer. 

Sharpe, who has built a reputation for being outspoken in sports media, said the ‘three feet tall’ remark on ESPN’s ‘First Take’ with Cenat losing his mind on a live stream reacting to the comments. 

‘Why you call me three feet?’ Cenat screamed. ‘Hold on, bro, stop lying to these people.’

Cenat insists he is taller than his rumored height, but a quick eye test showed he was one of the shortest on the court Friday night. The streamer then was a guest on Sharpe’s podcast with co-host Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson.  

‘I feel like you ain’t have to faith in me bro. Right? Let’s be real,’ Cenat said to Sharpe. 

‘I saw you in pregame, I was a little skeptical. I’m not going to lie,’ Sharpe responded. 

As proof for his basketball skills, Cenat showed an Instagram highlight tape of him training for the celebrity game against children. 

‘Kai, you’re playing kids bro,’ Sharpe said. 

‘No, they’re almost 13! They’re like teenagers!’ Cenat responded. 

‘No Kai, ain’t no way. That kid had on Pampers,’ Sharpe added. 

‘But they hoop bro!’ Cenat proclaimed.

While Sharpe debated Cenat’s mixtape playing against children, Johnson visibly could not contain his laughter and nearly fell out of his chair. 

Cenat and Sharpe ultimately made up and ended the interview on good terms. 

Sharpe expressed an interest in returning to coach the celebrity game during next year’s All-Star weekend, where he said he would give Cenat more playing time to prove his skills. 

Instead, Cenat passed blame onto the game’s MVP, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons, for not passing the ball to him while open.
