Last week, Mark Cuban spoke at a business conference in Nashville, and the Donald Sterling story was brought up. Cuban said he would hypocritically vote to force a Sterling sale, then used an unfortunate example to try and show how we all suffer from racism and bigotry. The response to his “black kid in a hoodie” illustration — mirroring the real life Trayvon Martin tragedy — was anger, and Cuban spoke about his comments with the “Inside the NBA” crew before tonight’s Game 4 in Oklahoma City.

The Emmy-winning “Inside the NBA” crew featuring Chuck, Kenny, Ernie and Shaq has become almost as beloved as the playoffs. Maybe that’s why Kevin Hart‘s impression of the whole crew is so side-splitting. Read More »
As if you needed more evidence that TNT’s “Inside The NBA” is the most entertaining show on television. Last night, during a segment about sucking up to officials, Shaquille O’Neal said he never talked to refs during games. When Charles Barkley starting to say his own piece, the Diesel interrupted him in awkward fashion, in reference to NBA official Dick Bavetta. Read More »
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 â€” and ended â€” with some disputes we’re sure will continue to be debated by the TNT crew in the weeks and months ahead.

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 »
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 »
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).
Here’s Charles, Kenny and Shaq going to work: Read More »
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 »
