Jason Kelce reveals he PUNCHED Travis in a teenage fight over basketball before his younger brother knocked him off his feet in their kitchen, leaving their dad to break it up: ‘Last fight we’ve ever been in!’

Jason Kelce has revealed that he once punched his younger brother and Chiefs star Travis in the face after a heated game of one-on-one-basketball in high school. 

The 36-year-old, Philadelphia Eagles center brought up the childhood memory while explaining his relationship with Travis, who just won his third Super Bowl with Kansas City on Sunday, to Shaquille O’Neal.

The Kelce brothers grew up in Westlake, Ohio – a suburb of Cleveland.

Appearing on the four-time NBA champion’s podcast on Monday, Jason started off his story by clarifying that he’s the older brother out of the two siblings, meaning he was ‘always the bigger one.’

‘I was winning most of the competitions growing up,’ he then said. ‘And, I was a junior in high school, Trav’ was a freshman. He had just gotten to be taller then. He was always more athletic, but I was ahead of him He had just hit puberty.’

‘So he’s feeling himself?’ asked Shaq’ with a grin on his face.

After confirming that was the case, Jason continued: ‘I’m getting pissed off that he’s feeling himself. We’re out in the backyards and he starts just driving and doing this stupid little hook shot over like his shoulder. It wasn’t a hook shot but a drive that you call go like, little whatever that’s called, and he is making it every single time and I can’t do anything to stop it.

‘So of course I resort to fouling him. The only way I know how to stop it. And he says, ”that’s bulls*** that’s a foul.” Now I’m like, ”I don’t see any refs out here. I don’t see anybody calling it.”

‘He picks the ball up, throws it at me, goes in the house…I’m like this motherf*****, he just threw the ball at me. So I go in there. I grab him on the shoulder, and I punch him and… listen, we would fight all the time. This is the only… twice, the second time I ever punched him.

‘I don’t know how it got that heated. I punched him in the face and every time it was in the face.’

‘Wow. Damn,’ said both Shaq and the podcast’s other co-host, Adam Lefkoe, who appears on TNT’s Tuesday programming of NBA games throughout the regular season.

‘And every time before that, he would cry or whatever,’ said Jason of young Travis’ response to getting hit. But that wasn’t the case this time.

‘[Travis] took this punch, scooped me off my feet and slammed me on the kitchen floor so hard that the oven got knocked off the rack. Like what it was sitting on the tracks,’ said Jason.

‘I get up. We’re up in a full-on fist fight. Dad comes behind me to break it up, grabs me. Travis pushes me back on top of dad, and the only thing that stopped the fight was my dad screaming, ”Oh my ribs.” So we thought that we had hurt him so we snapped out of it…

‘But that’s the last time we ever got in a fight. Last fight we’ve ever been in. We were competitive at everything. And [Travis] was… you always knew at every level, he was another level of athlete. You know what I mean?’

Praising the impact that the fight had on both Kelce brothers, Shaq said: ‘You see those moments that he’s talking, that’s made me who I am.’
