Trey Wingo puts Adam Schefter in “timeout” for paying attention to his phone instead of the show
During ESPN’s NFL schedule release extravaganza on Thursday night, Trey Wingo was breaking down the Washington Redskins’ schedule, and Adam Schefter followed by pointing out the same thing Wingo did. Schefter was using his phone — as he’s been known to do during live television — and clearly wasn’t paying attention to what Wingo had said.
That made for a very funny moment, as Wingo called out Schefter for not paying attention, and took away the cell phone:
“Were you not listening? I literally JUST said that! I’m gonna take your phone away from you. You’re clearly not concentrating.
Put this on camera. I have Adam Schefter’s phone here. He’s now going to actually listen to the show he’s doing. You’re (Schefter) in timeout!”
Charles Barkley had an eventful week on Inside the NBA
First, Charles Barkley said that the Chicago Bulls had “zero chance” of beating the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their series:
Welp, not only did the Bulls win that game, but they won Game 2 as well!
Barkley also said that he was “uncomfortable” with the scene of Isaiah Thomas crying on the sidelines before the game, after Thomas’ sister Chyna was tragically killed in a car accident the day before. And he then went off about the criticism of those comments.
On a much lighter, fun Inside the NBA moment, here are Ernie Johnson and Charles Barkley (sort of) in Office Space:
Doc Rivers calls reporter’s question “the dumbest thing [he’s] ever heard” and makes funny faces
The Utah Jazz beat the Los Angeles Clippers 97-95 in Game 1 of their playoff series, with veteran Joe Johnson hitting a game-winner at the buzzer (by the way, this features a great call by Dave Pasch):
So as you can see in that sequence, the Clippers’ Chris Paul hit a game-tying shot with 13.1 seconds left. Well, a reporter asked Clippers head coach Doc Rivers if Paul may have been better off running the clock down before attempting a shot, so that there wouldn’t be time left for the Jazz to then win the game. Rivers did not think that was a smart question:
“Who would do that? Like, why would you ever do that? So if you miss, the game’s over? That makes no sense. That is, like, the dumbest thing I ever heard. When you’re down two, you’re trying to score.”
