Inside the NBA’s prank of Charles Barkley was too funny

Over the years there have been hundreds of sports studio shows that have tried very hard to be good, only to fail because it’s really easy to see when they’re faking it.

There is only one of those shows that has ever been worth watching and that, of course, is the Inside the NBA crew on TNT. Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith, and Charles Barkley have long been the best to ever do these types of shows and with the NBA playoffs in full swing this is the best time of the year for them and for us.

If you needed any more proof that just check out what they did late last night during one of their legendary bits – Gone Fishing. The crew has enjoyed pranking Barkley and they got him again last night, with Johnson brilliantly leading him right into it.

Just sit back and watch this video and enjoy a good laugh.

Perfection. Who knew falling ping pong balls could be so funny?

All the other networks have these types of shows for all the sports and they’re all pretty much unwatchable. Why? Because they can’t replicate the genuine joy these four guys bring to their broadcasts every time the cameras go on. There are lots of shows with former athletes sitting around tables laughing at each other’s bad jokes but you can see right through them and can tell they’re trying their best to seem authentic but failing miserably to do so.

There’s no other studio show that would have people staying up deep into the night just to see what they do next.

Ernie, Chuck, Kenny, and Shaq are the GOATS and we’re lucky to have this show in our basketball lives.
