Report: Turner To Lay Off 550 Employees In Advance Of Upcoming NBA TV Rights Deal

Shaquille O'Neal, Charles Barkley

Following the 2015-16 season, the NBA will have negotiated a historically large television rights deal, which could cost networks like ABC/ESPN and Turner (TNT/TBS) close to $15 billion for an eight-year agreement — double their current contract.

Video: Mark Cuban’s “Inside The NBA” Interview After Hoodie Comments

Mark Cuban

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.

Tim Duncan’s Girlfriend Shames Charles Barkley

Vanessa Macias

Earlier in the 2014 NBA Playoffs, Charles Barkley insulted the women of San Antonio, with belittling comments about their supposed girth.

TNT’s Inside the NBA crew has been killing it during possibly the most exciting opening round in NBA Playoff history. An ongoing faux-feud between Shaq and Charles Barkley — that almost led to a formal fight, though it’s appeared to have been cancelled — has been good for some laughs, and last night Shaq-fu showed why his ample size is just too much for Chuck.
