Chris Webber Wins Controversial Inside The NBA “Chariots Of BackFire” Race

Chris Webber, Kenny Smith

There were so many things to love about the Inside the NBA “Chariots of BackFire” Race last night on TNT. Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Chris Webber all lined up for a football field-sized jaunt that started — and ended — with some disputes we’re sure will continue to be debated by the TNT crew in the weeks and months ahead.

Shaq Inside the NBA

Things got flipped up a little bit on TNT’s esteemed “Inside the NBA” tonight. Rather than Charles Barkley in the studio, it was Chris Webber joining Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. Chuck joined Marv Albert and Steve Kerr court-side to call the game. Read More »

Roy Hibbert

Everything about this video is a win. First, you have Roy Hibbert getting legitimately pissed and ripping the media for how few Defensive Player of the Year votes he got. Then you have Ernie Johnson dropping “We’re all black friends” on the TNT set. Read More »

Shaq & Chris Andersen Sing A Birdman Song Together With Kenny Smith Beatboxing

Chris Andersen

In Miami’s crazy Game 1 win last night, Chris Andersen must’ve been the unsung hero. He went for 16 points and didn’t miss a shot from the floor, hanging all over the rim whenever the Pacers forgot about him. Afterward, he was invited up to the TNT set and got involved in a funny interview with the guys. The best part about this whole segment is you know Birdman was PISSED when they said he had to wear the headphones and screw up his immaculate mohawk. Read More »

Dwyane Wade‘s pre- and post-game clothing choices have had about as much impact on this series as he has on the court, and he keeps upping the ante. Tonight he’s getting killed on TNT and Twitter for his suit (and floods).

Shaq’s Cell Phone Turns TNT Pre-Game Show Into a Debacle

tnt pre-game show

So this is how the night started on TNT: Shaq‘s cell phone went off during some Charles Barkley analysis (Chuck looks like he just heard the smoke alarm or something). O’Neal then chucks the phone. Somehow during that sequence, Shaq’s mic got ripped off, causing them to have to stop the show again.

Mess. Watch it here: Read More »

Video: The Best Trash Talkers In NBA History

Charles Barkley

Ever since New York decided to bless the basketball world with more Rasheed Wallace and then this tape followed soon after, the offices at Dime have been on a trash-talking binge. Rasheed was one of the best, even if he normally saved his best stuff for either the referees or even his own teammates. But we’re not sure he makes a list of the best trash talkers ever.

Shaquille O’Neal To Orlando: Show Dwight Howard ‘A Little Bit More Respect’

Lost amidst all the trade talk, conspiracies and player movement of the past few weeks, Shaquille O’Neal is still joining the best basketball show on television and is still going to make TNT’s “Inside the NBA” an even more entertaining program. Watching basketball on Thursday nights is great, but we all know how much better TNT makes it. Yesterday, I got my first listen into what a show with O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson will be like. TNT held a media conference call and nearly three quarters of the way through, the three analysts got into a pretty big argument over what Orlando should do with Dwight Howard. Read More »

For anyone that was free to sit in front of the television all day, they were in for a treat. Between eight NCAA Tournament games and six NBA contests, there were enough highlights to make sure SportsCenter didn’t feel compelled to show us any B-roll from the NFL lockout negotiations. And if you’re a fan of amazing individual performances, you had eight guys drop 30-plus: Jacob Pullen (38), Jimmer Fredette (34), LeBron James (33), Dwyane Wade (32), David West (32), Shelvin Mack (30), Brandon Knight (30) and Blake Griffin (30). So let’s get started … Read More »

Chris Webber Equates The Lakers To Raekwon

This is just utterly ridiculous. When Chris Webber was trying to find a way to describe the Lakers’ passing last night against the Hornets on NBA TV, he equated it to Raekwon and his song “Surgical Gloves.” Read More »
