Raw Video Feed Of The Bulls' Welcome Back Ceremony For Craig Sager

Craig Sager is serving as the TNT sideline reporter for tonight's Thunder-Bulls contest, his first game in nearly a year after spending the last 11 months fighting leukemia.

Reggie Miller Is A Damned Moron, Part #72

It continues to astonish us how Turner—a company that gets nearly every aspect of NBA broadcasting perfect—continues to trot out known idiot Reggie Miller as its lead analyst. Reggie's lack of basic basketball knowledge emerged again tonight: » 2/15/15 11:14pm 2/15/15 11:14pm

Charles Barkley Doesn't Give A Shit About Propriety On Live TV

Charles Barkley is always going to say whatever he wants to say, live TV and censors be damned. For some reason he objects to the idea that the Kings would discuss their head coaching position with DeMarcus Cousins—I'm not sure why the Kings wouldn't want to talk with their maximum contract star about what he wants… » 2/12/15 7:37pm 2/12/15 7:37pm

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. Earlier in the week Chuck went on CNN and various radio programs, playing his "contrarian just telling it like it is" role to a T. Kenny then… » 12/04/14 8:43pm 12/04/14 8:43pm

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

The Full Cleveland Cavaliers Intro & Starting Lineups, With Proper Audio

TNT (or, perhaps, Quicken Loans Arena) had a major audio fuckup tonight that left the Knicks' radio feed bleeding all over the Cavs' carefully-crafted fancy intro. So here's that fancy intro and starting lineups with proper audio. » 10/30/14 8:25pm 10/30/14 8:25pm

It's Opening Night, & Gregg Popovich Is Already Fed Up With Interviews

It's no secret that Gregg Popovich is no fan of the in-game interview, but we figured he'd make it through at least one of them this season without the whole thing breaking down into a postmodern farce. We were wrong. » 10/28/14 10:03pm 10/28/14 10:03pm

ESPN And TNT Think NBA Broadcasts Are Worth A Lot More Than The NFL's

Adam Silver proudly announced the NBA's new TV deal with ESPN and TNT this morning, one that nearly triples how much its cable partners will pay the league to broadcast its regular season and playoff games. That amount—$2.7 billion a year—is especially insane when compared to what NBC, Fox, and CBS are paying for a… » 10/06/14 4:00pm 10/06/14 4:00pm

Fans Of The TV Show Castle Angry At Sports

In the bottom of the eighth inning of the first game of the ALDS series between the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers, the Orioles offense went gangbusters and sent 14 players to the plate as well as prompting three pitching changes. This took a long time, so the Los Angeles Angels-Kansas City Royals game began on… » 10/02/14 9:23pm 10/02/14 9:23pm

Craig Sager Doesn't Want Gregg Popovich To Be Nice To Him

In a truly sweet moment, on Sunday, TNT sent Craig Sager Jr. out to do the on-court interviews in place of his father, who is undergoing chemotherapy treatment for leukemia. The usually gruff and taciturn Gregg Popovich went soft, wishing Craig Sr. the best and promising to be nice to him when he returns. Sager is a… » 4/22/14 11:48am 4/22/14 11:48am

Final Four Teamcasts Leave Viewers Confused, Enraged About "Bias"

Tonight's Final Four games were aired on TBS, with team-specific broadcasts on TNT and TruTV. This was explained to people for weeks, but it seems lots of them did not get the message—even with a large bug in the corner of the screen identifying the broadcasts as being oriented toward one of the two teams (and, of… » 4/05/14 10:13pm 4/05/14 10:13pm

Baron Davis's "Comeback" Is An Excuse For Reggie-On-Spike Trash Talk

Baron Davis's weirdo comeback documentary has checked in with Steve Nash and Yao Ming, and now it's on to Spike and Reggie. These clips are all fun, but honestly, the star of this one is Baron's McDowell's All Stars shirt in the second half. » 3/14/14 9:58am 3/14/14 9:58am

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

I Have No Idea What Is Going On With The NBA On TNT Twitter Account

We don't have many clues to work on here; all we have is the cryptically-worded message "Thundervgrizzlies" and the even more cryptic footage of a human, possibly infant, foot. » 6/16/13 6:14pm 6/16/13 6:14pm
