Funny New Commercial for ‘Inside the NBA’ Features Kevin Hart Playing Shaq, Chuck, Earnie, and Kenny (Video)
Everybody knows the guys on TNT’s Inside the NBA aren’t really there to analyze basketball games. They are there to entertain.
Sure, sometimes they analyze basketball games, and sometimes they even do it pretty well. But that’s not their primary job. If it was, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal probably wouldn’t be there flanking Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith. And they probably wouldn’t make a commercial for the show basically making fun of everyone.
That commercial? It features Kevin Hart impersonating everyone—including Johnson—and pretty much nailing it.
Take a look:
I have to admit, when I first heard about this commercial, I was a little worried they would have Hart playing Ernie Johnson in white face, which is pretty much the last thing the NBA needs right now after that little controversy that unfolded last week. Thankfully they didn’t do that, so we can all just laugh at Kevin Hart pretending to be Sir Charles dozing off. Which is something that actually happened. More than once.
