Anytime the Inside The NBA crew is on the air, I always tell whoever is within shouting distance how the four-man team is probably the funniest, rawest group around. But, they’ll never ever get to call a game together due to those same characteristics previously mentioned. Nothing against Reggie Miller, Chris Webber, etc., but Kenny, Charles, Ernie and (sometimes) Shaq are straight up the best thing going with basketball.
And, in some cases, they’re more entertaining than the actual games as evidenced by Shaquille telling Barkley that the latter used to brown-nose referees and he “kissed Dick in the mouth.” Of course, Shaq’s fellow crew members and basketball fans know he means longtime NBA referee Dick Bavetta. But that doesn’t stop everything from falling apart with laughter.
