    Inside the NBA Pranks Shaq, And It Was Hilarious (Video)

    If you asked any knowledgable basketball fan to rank the NBA’s all-time best centers, Shaquille O’Neal would be hard-pressed to crack the top three, thanks to the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Russell.  But you’d still find him in almost everyone’s top five. Or, at least you’d think so… During last night’s […]

    Drake Videobombs TNT Announcers During GS-LAC Game (Video)

    It’s not a good week in sports unless we can report something about Drake making an appearance at at least one sporting event. Last night, he made his presence known at the Staples Center as he dropped in on TNT’s Mike Fratello and Kevin Calabro. Here’s the clip: Drake videobombs these guys with the enthusiasm of […]

  • Craig Sager Beat Cancer, Will Return to TNT March 5

    Craig Sager Beat Cancer, Will Return to TNT March 5

    A few weeks ago it occurred to me that we haven’t heard anything about Craig Sager in a while. And upon realizing that, I immediately feared the worst. That’s how it went with the late great Stuart Scott. The man gave a moving speech at the 2014 ESPY awards, then we didn’t hear anything about […]

  • Charles Barkley Calls Basketball Analytics ‘Crap’ on TNT (Video)

    Charles Barkley Calls Basketball Analytics ‘Crap’ on TNT (Video)

    Charles Barkley has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind. So when cohort Kenny Smith brought up the subject of analytics, and their increased use in the NBA, Chuck had some thoughts. Namely, he thought they were “crap.” More specifically, Charles Barkley said, “a bunch of guys who have never played the […]

  • Ernie Johnson Jokingly Asks Russell Westbrook about His ‘Execution’ (Video)

    Ernie Johnson Jokingly Asks Russell Westbrook about His ‘Execution’ (Video)

    Ernie Johnson, while not considered one of the goofier hosts of Inside the NBA, can be pretty damn funny sometimes. For instance, Russell Westbrook‘s postgame interview last week made headlines when he answered every question with “execution.” It was tough to tell if Westbrook’s answers were a frustrated stonewall, or if he was just adopting the […]

  • Charles Barkley Explains Why He’s No Longer Friends With Jordan (Video)

    Charles Barkley Explains Why He’s No Longer Friends With Jordan (Video)

    Charles Barkley explaining something is always a good time. Especially when that thing is why the Chuckster and his polar opposite peer, Michael Jordan, aren’t really pals anymore. Barkley thinks it likely stems from some criticism he made of Jordan’s ownership on Inside the NBA. More specifically, here’s what Charles Barkley said was the reason their […]

  • Watch Kenny Smith Push Shaq Into a Christmas Tree (Video)

    Watch Kenny Smith Push Shaq Into a Christmas Tree (Video)

    Why would Kenny Smith push Shaq into a Christmas tree, you ask?  Maybe he knows Shaq has a little thing for getting decked by giant evergreen trees.  Or maybe he just wasn’t in the Christmas spirit during the NBA on TNT‘s Christmas Day coverage. Your guess is as good as mine, but there is one thing […]

  • Shaq Shows Off Some of His Circus Moves on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” (Video)

    Shaq Shows Off Some of His Circus Moves on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” (Video)

    Among Shaquille O’Neal‘s long list of credentials is former NBA center, rapper (although that’s questionable), actor (also questionable), law enforcement officer, real estate entrepreneur, and analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA.” It’s quite the impressive resume, and now you can add circus performer to that list after this scene from last night’s coverage of the […]

  • Charles Barkley’s Leg Cramp On Live TV Is Simply Terrific (Video)

    Charles Barkley’s Leg Cramp On Live TV Is Simply Terrific (Video)

    The best thing about the  producers of TNT’s Inside the NBA is that they really pull the curtain back on showbiz in order to make their hosts look like buffoons. Lovable buffoons. It’s the playoffs, which means the studio team is likely tethered to their desks for hours and hours upon end. And sitting for […]

  • Shaq Tells Barkley “You Kissed Dick in the Mouth” on TV (Video)

    Shaq Tells Barkley “You Kissed Dick in the Mouth” on TV (Video)

    Shaquille O’Neal is God’s greatest gift to television because you never know exactly what he’s going to say, and he’s rich enough not to care. On a recent TNT Inside the NBA segment, Shaq stretched the limits of TNT standards and practices by saying “you kissed Dick in the mouth” to co-host Charles Barkley—not once but […]
