Keith Olbermann Uppercuts Charles Barkley Into An Erupting Volcano

Charles Barkley said some really dumb stuff about basketball analytics on Tuesday night, and so Keith Olbermann dedicated a segment of his show to calling Chuck an idiot many, many times. » 2/12/15 10:31am 2/12/15 10:31am

Charles Barkley And His Crew Had The Dumbest Discussion About Analytics

There once was a time when TNT's Inside the NBA could be counted on to be the only sports studio show worth watching on a regular basis, but things have been trending downhill lately.

Dennis Scott's Young Son Socked Shaq In The Face

I somehow missed this Thursday night, but it's too funny to let pass by. That's Dennis Scott's son, Dennis III, socking Shaq in the face on the set of Inside the NBA. Scott and Shaq played together in Orlando for four seasons and I assume are friendly, but Dennis III hit Shaq a little bit harder than "jokingly,"… » 1/24/15 1:42pm 1/24/15 1:42pm

Charles Barkley And Kenny Smith Talk About Race, Ferguson, Eric Garner

Inside the NBA devoted the first ten minutes of their program Thursday night to Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith's disagreement on all things race, Ferguson, and Eric Garner.

Shaq Attempts The Cookie Face Challenge

You may know it as the cookie face challenge, the face the cookie challenge, the oreo challenge, or some other name. Whatever you call it, Shaq attempted it on the set of Inside the NBA tonight. It's pretty entertaining watching Shaq weirdly scrunch his face, but here are five food-related challenges I'd really » 11/21/14 12:38am 11/21/14 12:38am

Baron Davis's "Comeback" Trail Leads Him To China

Baron Davis's comeback mockumentary continues to be one of the best recurring features on Inside the NBA. Last night, Baron's journey led him to China to discuss a possible stint on the Shanghi Sharks with Yao Ming, and then to Oakland to talk to Warriors co-owner Peter Guber.

The Inside The NBA Guys Crack A Kellen Winslow Joke

Judging by this clip from last night's episode of Inside the NBA, allegations of Kellen Winslow's alleged public masturbation incident in a Target parking lot did not escape the attention of Chuck and Shaq. » 1/21/14 11:07am 1/21/14 11:07am

Charles Barkley Not Amused By Inside The NBA Jam Session

Ernie, Kenny, and Shaq start their own mini-Stomp performance, having a ball as an unimpressed Chuck observes silently. Unlike everyone else, he is not entertained. » 12/19/13 10:15pm 12/19/13 10:15pm

Reggie Miller Saying "Shit" On TV Is The Least Offensive Part Of This

A.J. Clemente cursed and got fired. Susannah Collins said "sex" and got fired. TNT analyst Reggie Miller said "shit" tonight while giving a sappy post-game speech to the victorious Golden State Warriors, and we hope he gets fired—but not because he said "shit." » 5/03/13 1:53am 5/03/13 1:53am

Shaq's Phone Goes Off, Chaos Ensues

Shaquille O'Neal forgot to turn off his cell phone before going on the air for TNT's pre-game show. He flings it away, dislodging his mic. The wheels come off from there. Watch the whole clip, it ends in hugs. » 5/01/13 10:45am 5/01/13 10:45am

Inside The NBA Got A Little Gay-Baity Last Night

During halftime of last night's Clippers-Suns game, the Inside the NBA crew had some fun at the expense of Charles Barkley, who mentioned during the second quarter that he gets his eyebrows waxed. The segment began with a mocking Shaquille O'Neal getting the same treatment, and it quickly devolved into transparent… » 1/25/13 1:15pm 1/25/13 1:15pm

This Inside The NBA Graphic Is To Scale Of Quality Vis-A-Vis Its ESPN…

It's no secret TNT's Inside The NBA trumps its ESPN counterpart in every manner of entertainment, humor, or likelihood of aired profanities. It's tough to really call the ESPN NBA program a "competitor," because ESPN's games air on Wednesdays and Fridays while TNT owns Thursday. The ratings, though, tell the only… » 1/18/13 9:00am 1/18/13 9:00am
